It's when you want to say something that explains why you're gonna say what you're gonna say. Or something like that. Dictionaries say it way better.Oh hey, I heard your thesis defense went well. Congrats
From the latin, I think it's a sort of warning. From my HS days, I remember the phrase "caveat emptor," which means let the buyer beware. Sort of like an "sold as is" clause. So caveat has to do with either the warning, or the buyer.
i can't compete with mr. timmy. I was gonna say : "warning." but he said it so much more scholarly-like.
ca-ve-at: an aside
Timmy and Annie win.caveat - a warning or caution; admonition.
