The first thing that comes to my mind when I see or hear the word abate is that it was the first word in the GRE Verbal word list. This memory is nearly 20 years old but I doubt it’s different now.
PS. the second word was abeyance (hi @kaa)
@pratik I think I hear/see abatement used much more frequently than I do abeyance (I suppose because termites/mold/water/fire/etc)…
@smokey @pratik @kaa I like the word abeyance a lot.
@simonwoods It’s a fabulous word, and I’m glad @kaa has employed it so that it makes a more frequent appearance in my life :-) // @pratik
@smokey @pratik @simonwoods your timing guys is impecable :). Just released the latest issue and forgot to post about it on my site.
@kaa 🙌🏽 I always look forward to your illustrations too
@pratik Thanks! Glad you're enjoying them. They usually come after I've written the article, so they feel like I'm treating myself to a drawing :)
