AVERT and OVERT


AVERT:

(1) Turn something away
(2) Prevent something – avoid

ex: She averted her glance from the horrible accident.
ex: John averted the food shortage crisis by having a well-stocked pantry from his garden.

OVERT: Not secret or hidden – done or shown openly or publicly

ex: I am aware of their overt hostility.
ex: The pirate’s uprising was an overt act of mutiny against the captain.

TIP:
AVert=AVoid
Overt=Open
