#WOTD: “Bamboozle”

Today I’d like to share one of my fave English words: BAMBOOZLE.

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, bamboozle is a verb that was first used in 1703.

It has two meanings. The first one is “to deceive” (menipu), the other one is “to confuse” (membuat bingung).

Here is how you can use it in a sentence:

1. “My father was bamboozled by salesman into buying a fake gemstone in the market.”

“Ayahku ditipu oleh pedagang yang membuatnya membeli batu akik palsu di pasar.”

2. “I am completely bamboozled by the changes in the company’s regulation.”

“Saya benar-benar dibuat kebingungan oleh perubahan terbaru dalam peraturan perusahaan.”

Some words that are the synonim for bamboozle: misguided, misinformed, deceived.
