Definition
to discourage or intimidate

(editor's note: The root word is most commonly seen as the adjective daunting which describes something as "discouraging or intimidating". Note that the "-less" suffix means without, so dauntless is to daunt as hopeless is to hope and careless is to care.)
  • Do not believe him! He has lost all power, save his voice that can still daunt you and deceive you, if you let it.
