Borrowed from Latin admoveō (I move, bring, conduct, lead, or carry someone or something to or toward)


admove (third-person singular simple present admoves, present participle admoving, simple past and past participle admoved)

  1. (obsolete) To move or conduct to or toward.
    • 1646/50, Sir Thomas Browne, Pseudodoxia Epidemica:
      Thus if unto the powder of Loadstone or Iron we admove the North pole of the Loadstone, the powders or small divisions will erect and conform themselves thereto: but if the South pole approach, they will subside, and inverting their bodies respect the Loadstone with the other extream.
