NAVY 
TERMINOLOGY 

   
"Taken Aback"

One of the hazards faced in days of sailing ships has been incorporated into English to describe someone who has been jolted by unpleasant news. We say that person has "taken aback." The persn is at a momentary loss; unable to act or even speak.

A danger faced by sailing ships was for a sudden shift in wind to come up (from a sudden squall), blowing the sails back against the masts, putting the ship in grave danger of having the masts break off and rendering the ship totally helping. The ship was taken aback.
