  • flaunt or flout?It is a common error to use flaunt as though it meant the same as flout. Flaunt means ‘display ostentatiously’, as in tourists flaunting their wealth. Flout, on the other hand, means ‘defy or disobey (a rule)’, as in timber companies are continuing to flout environmental laws. Saying that someone flaunts the rules is an error due to similarity in sound and to the element of ostentation involved in flouting a regulation.
