undazzle (third-person singular simple present undazzles, present participle undazzling, simple past and past participle undazzled)

    • 1902, Good Words and Sunday Magazine (volume 43, page 496)
      With an effort I strove to undazzle my sense, and with my heart as much as with my lips I murmured, “Murder!” And it seemed to me as if it were he who murmured it, not I—or at least that our two beings murmured it as one.
  2. (intransitive) To return to one's senses.
