Today’s Word: subside

March 30, 2017 =========

☆  subside  おさまる


If something such as a feeling, a noise, or a pain subsides, it becomes less strong, less loud, or less painful. Something that subsides decreases, diminishes, eases, lessens, quietens, or wanes.

As always, a great way to learn new words is to do a Mind Map of related words, or words with similar meanings, like the ones I have just listed above. Then, write out some sentences using the words. If you can make the sentences personal to your situation, as this will make them easier to remember, too.

For me, for example, I went to the gym yesterday morning, and the pain in my legs is finally starting to subside!
