(pronounced AB-ruh-gayt )

If you abrogate something, then you either treat it as if it doesn’t exist or you abolish or annul it. Yes, it’s a strong verb, so use it carefully!

EXAMPLE: The architectural firm’s decade-old rule that had abrogated the wearing of blue jeans or Bermuda shorts on Fridays in the summer was recently removed from the employee handbook.
