Dehort: v. t. 1. To urge to abstain or refrain; to dissuade.
To discourage from doing something.
[From Latin dehortari (to dissuade), from de- + hortari (to urge).]
This well-meaning word has gone out of circulation while its antithesis "exhort" continues to prosper.
"To those of his Friends that dehort him from Poetry."
Thomas Randolph (1605-1635)
