words that begin with ex- expel

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


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.
