abdicator abdicator

Definition(s):

  • (n) one who formally relinquishes an office or responsibility

Usage(s):

  1. The authoritarian sounds bossy, the abdicator yields in arguments, the critic criticizes, and it is all supposedly plain—often painfully plain to the subject himself—when the others' observations of him begin to "feed back."
  2. It is unfair to call her quitter or abdicator as she had to leave office owing to health compulsions.
