[.. 'nauns m..nt] = /əˈnaʊnsmənt/
  1. You can hear announcements at an airport or at a train station. They tell important information — for example, which airplanes are arriving or departing, and how to get on these airplanes.
    The announcement was so unclear that the tourist did not know if his plane was still at the airport or if it had already left.
    If you are bad at English, you will not understand announcements at an American airport.
    We missed our train because we misunderstood the announcement.
