I've found today the word scathe
. For my surprise http://www.macmillandictionary.com/ and http://dictionary.cambridge.org/ returned no result
. Searching internet I found a definition in few other dictionaries, meaning something not working
e.g. "My car was scathed.
". I'm wandering how popular is it as a verb?
I found it in all examples used as scathing
as a severe critique
. I'd appreciate your comments about it.
