[Attested from around (1350 to 1470) until the late 16th century.] USAGE NOTES * Of abash, confuse, confound: ABASH is a stronger word than CONFUSE, but not so strong as CONFOUND. * We are _abashed_ when struck either with sudden shame or with a humbling sense of inferiority; as, Peter was _abashed_ by the look of his Master. So a modest youth is _abashed_ in the presence of those who are greatly his superiors. * We are _confused_ when, from some unexpected or startling occurrence, we lose clearness of thought and self-possession. Thus, a witness is often _confused_ by a severe cross-examination; a timid person is apt to be _confused_ in entering a room full of strangers. * We are _confounded_ when our minds are overwhelmed, as it were, by something wholly unexpected, amazing, dreadful, etc., so that we have nothing to say. Thus, a criminal is usually _confounded_ at the discovery of his guilt. * Satan stood Awhile as mute, confounded what to say. – John Milton SYNONYMS * confuse * confound * disconcert * shame * humiliate * embarrass * See also Wikisaurus:abash ANTONYMS * embolden * reassure DERIVED TERMS * abashed * abashedly * abashedness * abashless * abashment TRANSLATIONS
