Words you may need to know

 

Caveat- the word comes from the Latin "let him beware" . It is a notice, usually in a register to the effect that no action may be taken without first informing the person who has placed the notice ; the Caveator. For instance,  a caveat may be placed in the Probate Registry by someone who has an interest in a dead persons estate. This is done to protect the person's interests so that the estate is not distributed without the person knowing.
