Abrogate verb, \ˈa-brə-ˌgāt\
Etymology: Latin abrogatus, past participle of abrogare, from ab- + rogare to ask, propose a law. 
Defintion:  (1) To abolish by authoritative action, annul.  (2) To treat as nonexistent, nullify.
Usage:  Curses!  His moat has foiled me for the last time!  I will abrogate his architectural prowess if it's the last thing I ever do!

Apologies for the tardiness.  My work schedule has been really hectic but I promise I don't intend on this to become a habit.  Apologies especially for encroaching on the Sunday mod's territory.
