discomfit的用法:

9. It is true that discomfit originally meant “to defeat, frustrate,” and that its newer use meaning “to embarrass, disconcert,” probably arose in part through confusion with discomfort. But the newer sense is now the most common use of the verb in all varieties of writing and should be considered entirely standard.
discomfit 起初确实意为“打败,挫败”, 该词的新意义是“使困窘,使窘迫”, 这个词义的生成部分原因,可能是由于和discomfort 的混淆引起。 但是新的词义现在在各种写作中是该动词的最普遍的用法,应被看作是完全标准的
