☆  abandon  断念する


You can use abandon in a few different ways. Firstly, you can abandon a place or person, which means you leave that place or person permanently. For example, “Her husband abandoned her and the children, and she hasn’t seen him since last year.”

Secondly, you can abandon an activity or work, meaning you stop doing it before it is finished. My son usually abandons his Lego projects before he finishes them! It’s so hard to find the pieces apparently, so he gives up!

And thirdly, you can abandon an idea, meaning that you stop thinking in that way. For example, “I was thinking about starting an internet business, but I abandoned the idea after doing some research.”

Can you use abandon in a sentence?
