Remonstrate
(v) to object to something. Origin: L re-, again + mostrum, a warning => 'to give a warning again' => 'to object to what is currently being done.' Shaaleen had noticed for some time that his friend Vicky was making advances towards his wife. She flirted back with him for amusement. Shaaleen did not remonstrate with her. "If one doesn't trust one's own wife," he thought, "one has no right to be married at all." Muster: (v) to gather (all forces) together; (n) a gathering (of soldiers, forces, people etc.). Origin: L monstrum, warning => 'evil omen' => 'to show' => 'to show one's total strength to the enemy' Ronit finally mustered his courage and told Shreya he loved her. "He had a horror of destroying documents, especially those which were connected with his past cases, and yet it was only once in every year or two that he would muster energy to docket and arrange them; for...the outbursts of passionate energy when he performed the remarkable feats with which his name is associated were followed by reactions of lethargy during which he would lie about with his violin and his books, hardly moving save from the sofa to the table. Thus, month after month, his papers accumulated, until every corner of the room was stacked with bundles of manuscript which were on no account to be burned, and which could not be put away save by their owner." Dr Watson said about his friend and roommate, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Docket: (n) a page which lists or provides a very brief summary of the various documents contained in a package; a book in a court which contain brief summaries of the court proceedings of each case; a list of the court cases scheduled for trial. (v) to make a summary of the heads of a document. The senior advocate tried to get a case out of the docket of one judge and get it into the docket of another, more lenient judge. He failed.
