WORD OF THE DAY (1): MAROONED_ LEARN ENGLISH WORDS EVERY DAY_ ENGLISH VOCABULARY

WORD OF THE DAY (1): MAROONED_ LEARN ENGLISH WORDS EVERY DAY_ ENGLISH VOCABULARY

Hi everyone! This is RB. Today, the word that we are going to learn is 'MAROONED'. It's an adjective. It means 'to be stuck or left in a place from which one cannot escape.' 



I don't know about you, but when I, first, learnt its meaning, I was reminded of all those days when I got stuck in rain and had to take shelter until it stopped. 



In your case, it could be a blizzard as well. Maybe, on your way back from the supermarket, you got marooned by the blizzard. As a result, you were forced to stay in your car. 



The thought itself can make one feel helpless. Right? A few years ago, one of my friends had told me that his flight was postponed because of poor weather conditions. He was marooned at the airport for almost six hours. 



At times, flood victims are marooned at distant places. It becomes tremendously difficult to rescue them. Just think of their situation. 



In fact, there are many incidents in the past where some of the crew of their ships were marooned on islands after their vessels were capsized by the rough seas. It's a scary situation. 

Anyhow, I hope this helps you out. Tell me in the comments how you would like to use 'marooned' in a sentence.
