SAT Vocab: cowed

Definition of cowed: Intimidated.

Part of Speech: verb

Pronunciations: KOWD (rhymes with “loud”)
or, if you prefer the IPA: /kaʊd/

Example: “Don’t let yourself be cowed by others; trust your abilities and have confidence that you will succeed.” I wish I could say that a sage, old man said this to me once and in so doing changed my life, but this is not a treacly, formulaic Hollywood movie; this is a vocabulary example.
