Parry is a a verb that means to ward off or evade. 

Our word of the day comes from Latin. The word parare (puh RAH ray) means ‘to ward off or defend.’ It’s a good word to use to describe someone in a fight — whether the fight is physical or verbal. 

I tried to slip under Gerry’s guard with my sword. But he was fast enough to parry my blow.

Once again, parry is spelled P-A-R-R-Y.
