What does "waive off" mean?

Answer

The phrase "waive off" means the same as the word "waive" on its own, and in fact, the "off" is superfluous in this phrase. To waive means to give up or to forgo something. For instance, one could waive their right to a lawyer.

Waive is a transitive verb, meaning that it must be followed by an object. That object does not need to have a preposition like "off" in front of it.

The phrase "waive off" is sometimes used in a casual sense, and according to the Urban Dictionary, the phrase "waive off" can be used as a noun to refer to someone or something that is ignored or discarded. For instance, if one skips their homework, they could refer to that assignment as a "waive off."
