Pled v. Pleaded & Enormity Defined
Today I will answer a couple of questions I received from radio listeners when I was a guest.
Question: Should you say “pled guilty” or “pleaded guilty”? Answer: Either one is considered correct.
Question: Does “enormity” mean “something monstrous” or “something important”? Answer: Both
Definition: something outrageous or heinous, as an offense.
Example: The bombing of the defenseless population was an enormity beyond belief.
Definition: greatness of size, scope, extent, or influence; immensity.
Example: The enormity of such an act of generosity is staggering.
