Question:
What does it mean when someone suffers a “sea change”?
Answer:
Sea change is a term often used in politics that refers to a surprising and significant change from a previous position. Because early sailors were familiar with the sudden and unpredictable temperament of the sea, one minute calm and life-threatening and dangerous the next, they introduced the expression “sea change” into everyday English language meaning any sudden transformation.
