Ladder off

Translation into plain English Reflect

Usage example "Citi's audio brand was composed especially for Citi and ladders off our purpose of 'Driving Success'."

Lucy’s commentary Particularly impressive twaddle, given that the verb ladder was previously only used in connection with stockings.
