RASE, s as z. L. rasus, rado.

1. To pass along the surface of a thing, with striking or rubbing it at the same time to graze.

Might not the bullet which rased his cheek, have gone into his head? Obs.

2. To erase to scratch or rub out or to blot out to cancel.

In this sense, erase is generally used.

3. To level with the ground to overthrow to destroy as, to rase a city.

In this sense, raze is generally used. This orthography, rase, may therefore be considered as nearly obsolete graze, erase and raze having superseded it.

RASE, n

1. A cancel erasure. Not in use.
2. A slight wound. Not in use.
