(pronounced vet)

No, we’re not talking about those who have served in the military or the person who takes care of your little Fido or Morris. We’re actually referring to a verb meaning either to subject to authoritative review and/or modification or to evaluate for potential support or approval.

Example: Even though she knew that she had not quite followed the proper vetting process required for approval of her interior design Master’s thesis, Jill was absolutely shocked that her subject matter was rejected since it had the potential to improve the working conditions of employees in the city’s local hospitals.
