                  An abrupt and complete reversal of attitude, opinion or position.

  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    I have come to the conclusion that the English language is a very strange beast indeed ...

    I have never heard of volte-face, however my first reaction was to assume about-face.

    I checked out the two definitions and to be honest I couldn't really tell the difference between the two.

    Great new to me word, thanks for sharing :)

  2. Volt-face?! I love it and think of several occasions where I can use that - I should say people I can use that on. Thanks.
