Word Wednesday 5: Avert

Avert is a verb meaning 'to turn away or to the side.' When you avert your eyes, it means you're turning them away from whatever you're looking at. This word is often used by people with a prepositional phrase like 'He averted his eyes to the floor' but this is kind of gray territory as far as whether it's correct English or not. I'm a creative writing major, not an English major, so I can't sit here and lecture you on linguistics all day. I'll leave it to your interpretation :P
