Mari belajar perkataan Bahasa Inggeris

Tiba-tiba pagi ni aku terfikirkan satu perkataan English - SCAPEGOAT. Lalu aku bukak Merriam-Webster On-line Dictionary untuk ku'check' pengertiannya:

Main Entry: scape·goat
Pronunciation: \ˈskāp-ˌgōt\
Function: noun
Etymology: 1scape; intended as translation of Hebrew ʽazāzēl (probably name of a demon), as if ʽēz 'ōzēl goat that departs—Lev 16:8(Authorized Version)
Date: 1530

1: a goat upon whose head are symbolically placed the sins of the people after which he is sent into the wilderness in the biblical ceremony for Yom Kippur
2 a: one that bears the blame for others b: one that is the object of irrational hostility

Kenapa pulak aku berminat nak check maksud perkataan ini?

Apasal aku highlightkan certain parts?

(... dan music suspense lalu berkumandang di latar).
