Renege is a verb that means to go back on a promise or commitment.

Derived from Medieval Latin, our word of the day was once used as a synonym of ‘denial,’ but more recently, it means to reverse field on a commitment previously made. For example: The mayor promised to support the football team when they first arrived in town. But after three awful seasons he reneged on that promise.
