When you ‘misplace’ something, you put it in the wrong place, and as a result you are unable to find it. But it’s only temporarily. You are unable to find it only for a short while. Later, you do find it. The word suggests that you have merely mislaid the object.
Examples: “My grandmother misplaced her spectacles.” * “It’s very difficult to find books in this library because they are always misplaced.”* One can also misplace one’s trust which means you trust a person who doesn’t deserve to be trusted.* Sailaja is helping her former boss because of her misplaced sense of loyalty.”
“Our faith in our leaders is misplaced.”
