Verb

abolir

  1. (transitive) to abolish
    • 1856, “Mémoire sur l'île de Chio présenté par M. Fustel de Coulanges, membre de l'École française d'Athènes”, in Archives des missions scientifiques et littéraires[1], volume 5, Paris, page 624:
      Plus tard, la démogérontie fit un marché avec le gouvernement, et, moyennant un droit fixe et annuel, elle fit abolir à la fois le monopole et l’impôt, et obtint que le commerce fût libre.
      Later, the Demogeronty made a deal with the government, and, by means of a fixed annual fee, it abolished both the monopoly and the tax, and obtained free trade.

Usage notes

edit
  • A distinction is drawn in legal usage between abolir and abroger, with the latter requiring a formal action, and is used (for example) of laws, whereas abolition is an incidental effect of other actions, or is not performed by a legislative body.

Conjugation

edit

This is a regular verb of the second conjugation, like finir, choisir, and most other verbs with infinitives ending in -ir. One salient feature of this conjugation is the repeated appearance of the infix -iss-.
