Abating, Abatement, Abated, Abate.

I found out.

There’s no such word as abating. Only abatement, abated, abate.

And it means diminishing… fading.

No wait!

Google says in the first entry (the first search result):

abating Definition from dictionary. … No titles with the word(s) ‘abating’.For any questions about this word or definition

But Google/TFD says in the second entry (from the Google search results):

abatement - the act of abating

Although there isn’t an entry for “abating”, I guess, it’s still a valid word…

Yes it is…

TFD says again (search for “abate”):

abate
(redirected from abating)
