The definition of the word amaze is so damned obvious that it seems ridiculous to have to provide it here. However, so many people get it wrong that it seems we must do so as part of our ongoing mission to improve English literacy.

Amaze is a verb that means “to place in a maze.” For example, you might say, “The research psychologist amazed a mouse and then he amazed several more mice to see if they had the same cheese-seeking skills of the first mouse because that’s just the sort of people research psychologists are.”
