Phrasal verb: call off something

call off something = to decide that something that has already been planned will not go ahead

A range of events can be ‘called off’ for a variety of reasons.

For example:

  • The game was called off due to bad weather.
  • Julie and John were arguing so much they decided to call off the wedding.
  • We’re thinking of calling off the demonstration due to lack of interest.

Have you ever had to call something off? Or has an event, that you were going to, been called off? πŸ€”
