Under the Lens: Abrogate and Abdicate

Abrogate is often confused with abdicate although the meaning of these words is not similar. Abrogate means to abolish by formal or official means while abdicate means to give up or renounce a throne, high office, right, power or the like, especially in a formal manner. To not get confused remember that abrogate and abolish both have an ‘o’ while abdicate and ‘give up’ both have an ‘i’.
