Classic Word of the Dayaugur –  v.  to predict an outcome

Classical Usage:  After Isabel’s marriage Mrs. Touchett is no longer in close contact with that circle of Florence friends, including Osmond’s sister, Countess Gemini.  The Countess was less talked of in these days; but Mrs Touchett augured no good of that:  it only proved how she had been talked of before.

Classically Mad Usage:  Can you augur the end of POAL?  I can’t.
