can any 1 hlp me to get the correct meanin of The thwarted theft
n tell me whether its correct to use the word like this The ambush theft
plz answer me soon
Thwarted mean :To oppose and defeat the efforts, plans, or ambitions of someone or something.
So a Thwarted ttheft is a theft (when something is taken from you or a place without paying or permission) that was prevented. Basically a prevented theft.
I don't believe that you could use ambush as an adjective for theft but you could say that the theft was an ambush. That you could say. :)
I hope that helps
