to zap


Senior Member
My friend noted in classroom that "to zap" means "to destroy something unintentionally".
I can't find anything about it in dictionaries. They just say it can mean to kill someone or get rid of someone.
I dare to ask you about your opinion guys :D

    I don't know about unintentionally, I never thought that was part of it. It is more about it being a SUDDEN thing. I guess you could do it by accident, but it is not inherent in the word to me.
