How to use forlorn in a sentence?

  1. David Cannington:

    Amidst market turbulence there is a call to arms for the G20 to get the global economy back on track, while we can hope for a substantive policy prescription, it's a forlorn one. There is simply too much self-interest globally and that dominates group interest.

  2. Arthur Garfield Hays:
