Why do we say ‘suspension’ when we mean ‘suspension’?

It’s not uncommon these days for professional baseball games to be canceled due to sudden downpours. In the middle of a game, the umpire declares a “suspended game”. This means that the game is paused and resumed at a later date. This is also known as a “suspended game” in Korean. “suspended” is the past tense of the verb “suspend”, which means to stop temporarily, and “game” is a noun meaning a game. Suspended game is the Japanese kanji for the English translation. The noun form of “suspend”, “suspension”, can also mean “suspension of play” in addition to suspending a game. Suspension also comes from the Japanese language.

According to English dictionaries, “suspension” comes from the Latin suspensionnem, meaning temporary suspension or deprivation of duty, and was borrowed into Middle English suspensioun in the early 15th century. The prefix “sub” means under, and “pendere” means to hang. A “suspension bridge” is a bridge suspended from a chain or wire cable.

American baseball lingo expert Paul Dixon explains in his baseball dictionary that ‘suspension’ means that a game is suspended due to external influences such as bad weather, or that a player is punished for unethical or immoral behavior and cannot play.

The Korean media has been using words such as suspension and suspension since the Japanese occupation. An August 8, 1928, article in the Dong-A Ilbo said, “At the Sariwon Table Tennis Tournament, heavy rain caused a temporary stop during the preliminary finals, and the next day, the Shinmak Army withdrew due to time.

Suspension of play is a combination of the words “出戰,” meaning to go to war, and “停止,” meaning to stop or cease, and is believed to have been coined during the Japanese militarist era. The term was used primarily in a military context. For example, it was used in the middle of a battle to stop combat activities for some reason, or to take oneself out of combat status.

In sports, the term suspension is used in most sports. It’s usually imposed when a player or team breaks the rules of the game or an association rule. In tennis, each tournament has its own suspension rules. The Grand Prix Player code of conduct stipulates that a 42-day suspension will be imposed if a player’s accumulated fines within the past year exceed $7500. The suspension is effective on the first Monday after the end of the event in which it was imposed, but there is a 10-day probationary period, so if a player enters a new event during that time, the suspension will not take effect until the end of that event. In addition, if the suspension relates to an official event that counts towards Grand Prix points, but the athlete does not compete in an exhibition match during the suspension period, the suspension period may be halved to 21 days.토토사이트
