    usage

    I have seen the word abase in dictionary and it has been mentioned that abase should be used with only object. I do not know what that mean?
    Can some one give me example for how abase is used with object and not used with object. Thank you

    Re: usage

    While reading the dictionary, did you notice that "abase" is a transitive verb? That means it always requires an object. You need to learn the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs.

    Re: usage

    Click here to read the definition of 'abase' in a number of free online dictionaries, some of which use the word in sentences.

    Additionally, click here to read further examples of 'abase' used in context.

    Everybody should bookmark both the above sites for future reference.

    Finally, please note that a better title would have been Usage of 'abase'.
