Its crevasse, and it's not bottomless. I disagree with the definition of abyss, too.

"The term "embassy" is commonly used also as a section of a building in which the work of the diplomatic mission is carried out, but, strictly speaking, it is the diplomatic delegation itself that is the embassy, while the office space and the diplomatic work done is called the Chancery. Therefore, the Embassy is in the Chancery." (I did not know that)

P.T. Barnum had a sign posted in his Museum that read "This Way to the Egress." Customers who followed the sign walked through a door, then found themselves on the outside of the museum, and would have to pay another 25 cents to get back in. At least some of the visitors to this site would have fallen for the same gag, it appears.

It's 'transubstantiation,' and it is not the celebration (liturgy) itself.

So would that be tran-substantiate or trans-ubstantiate? Weird that the s has gone missing (and not an extra snuck in). It is not tranmutation or transutation is it? I wonder which s has gone missing.

Wouldn’t something along the lines of “The Catholic term for church service” be better than the current answer? I got confused because I was trying to think of words more specifically dealing with communion.
