I am looking for a word in which you look at someone with your eyes such that you’re telling them to remain quiet.
For example, you are in a serious situation and your friend tries to make a joke and you look at him with wide eyes, telling him to just shut up.
Is there a word for that?
Also can you guide me to a site where words for different expressions are given?
- Put an end to (a rebellion or other disorder), typically by the use of force.
“extra police were called to quell the disturbance”
- subdue or silence (someone).
“Connor quelled him with a look”
It’s often used in this context – you would give someone a ‘quelling look’ which would be the kind that silently tells them to stop what they are doing.
