To Entrust Something
To Delegate Something, To Leave Something To
transitive verb, ichidan verb
If you pass a duty on to someone, that means you're going to entrust something to that person, or you're going to delegate something. In other words, you're going to leave something to them, so that they do it for you.
This word uses the kun'yomi of the kanji. You haven't learned that reading yet, so here's a mnemonic to help you:
In order to entrust something to someone, you need to make a (まか) list. It's no good delegating tasks if the person has no idea what to do, so be sure to make a list, okay?
In this company, even young employees are entrusted with essential tasks.
It's really important, so it can't be left to anyone else.
If you don't learn to delegate, you'll make things hard for yourself.
