(pronounced keh-PIH-chah-layt)

This is a fancy word to say to give in or to yield. If you capitulate, then you acquiesce to another or a group, ceasing to resist to accept their actions, opinions, or way of thinking.

Example: Even though Carlotta believed the space plan for the new university library project to be inefficient, she capitulated and went along with the rest of the design team.
