Past tense Daunted

It does not have a verb form. It is an adjective or an adverb by adding “ly.”

daunted; daunting; daunts

Definition of daunt:
transitive verb
: to lessen the courage of : cow, subdue

Interesting. I also looked it up on Merriam-Webster and did not get that information.

@Hawaii_Jake That is weird. Can you see in your search history what your search terms were?

I just searched for the word, and clicked on M-W.

Oh I think I see – so you searched for daunting and naturally just saw the entry for the adjective form, which doesn’t mention the verb form?

Now that I try to remember, I can’t think of the precise search term I used.
