Today’s “Word of the Day” is abeyance and it is a noun meaning “a state of being inactive/suspended/inoperative temporarily; a state of dormancy; temporary halt/postponement. (It is mostly used in the phrase “in abeyance” with the word “in”)”.
Example Sentence: The lockdown sceptics (doubters/questioners), it seems, are in abeyance. Opportunistic media voices who made a habit of denying the necessity of restrictions and the severity of the pandemic are still here, but noticeably quieter.
