Illiterate sports fans probably think abase has something to do with baseball, as in, “He stole abase.” No, that’s not what it means. Not at all. However, I do have an urge to abase people who think that.

It means to do something to belittle or degrade someone else. A good usage would be, ‘Turnabout is fair play. Therefore, I feel justified in abasing people who abase other people for no good reason.”

Oh, for the benefit of illiterate music fans I should point out that musicians do not play abase, nor do they play a base. They play a bass. However, I’m just fishing for an bad pun here, so let’s move on.
