overrun (part of speech: verb)
- We don't want to overshoot by a few centuries, you know!" - "Invaders from the Infinite", John Wood Campbell.
- Or why, if it aims to be unworldly, must it always overshoot its mark and be merely inhuman? - "Brother Copas", Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch.
- Whatever of truth there may have been in the bitter remark, it is certainly strange that a man so gifted as Sidney- of whom his father- in- law Walsingham had declared, that " although he had influence in all countries, and a hand upon all affairs, his Philip did far overshoot him with his own bow"- should have passed so much of his life in retirement, or in comparatively insignificant employments. - "Project Gutenberg History of The Netherlands, 1555-1623, Complete", John Lothrop Motley.
