A good sample sentence with the verb 'abash'? #1 (permalink) Wed Jan 24, 2007 21:02 pm   A good sample sentence with the verb 'abash'?
 

Hi, could you please help me come up with sample sentences that show how the verb 'abash' is used? BNC doesn't seem to find much on that verb.

Many thanks,
Torsten

A synonym is "to embarrass".

So:

I abashed my teacher when I told him that he's short.

probably the most commonly used form of "abash" is "unabashedly":

The couple unabashedly made out in the school hallway.
