words that begin with ex- expel

Another EX- word today! Let's take a look at this amazing word:


EXPEL

The word simply means wygonić, usunąć, wydalić, wykluczyć, wypędzić, wyrzucić. In English we could define this word as to drive out, to banish, to eject.

The word is pretty useful I guess. You might be expelled from a country, from school or from an organization. On the other hand, you can use this word to talk about releasing liquid, smoke or air.

So, if you're a smoker, you might take a drag on your cigarette and expel the smoke slowly... :) You also expel air from your lungs when you breathe...

Let's take a look at a few examples from the Net:
  • In 1797, Senator William Blount of Tennessee was expelled for treason, with charges...
  • Shakespeare will be expelled from NCEA exams at the end of the year and won't be back any time soon...
  • Greece's triple-jump champion was expelled from the Olympics after posting a tasteless tweet about Africans and the West Nile virus...
  • For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.
  • The plaintiff, Julea Ward, a former student at Eastern Michigan University, was expelled from the school's master's degree counseling program...
  • Illegal migrants will be expelled from Ukraine in the course of five days.                 
My question to you:
Have you ever been expelled? How does it feel to be expelled? Have you ever expelled anybody?

Looking forward to your valuable posts impatiently!

to dismiss officially from a school, college, etc.
