W.I.P. of the Day 10/14/2013
Saying one is nonplussed seems to becoming back into style. I have noticed it lately in several TV shows and in recent novels. To be honest I thought at first it was what I call a designer word because it is trendy to say so and really that still may be the case. However, because it has not been over used, as of yet, I am not yet offended and actually kind of like it.
Nonplus means that a person is surprised, bewildered or dumbfounded to the point that they are actually speechless.
"I am nonplussed, honestly I don't know how to respond to that"!
