Uso

The verbs abrogate and arrogate are quite different in meaning. While abrogate means ‘repeal (a law),’ arrogate means ‘take or claim (something) for oneself without justification,’ often in the structure arrogate something to oneself, as in the emergency committee arrogated to itself whatever powers it chose.

Origen

Early 16th century: from Latin abrogat- 'repealed', from the verb abrogare, from ab- 'away, from' + rogare 'propose a law'.
