I am an English learner and I have a hard time in understanding the below sentences.
"It's a dead issue. These days you can hardly get people to read about a live issue. People are issued out."
dead issue= people stop talking about it?
And what does "issue out" mean?
Can anyone please explain what that sentence mean? Thank You.
A dead issue is an old problem that may have been solved. People may have gotten tired of discussing this issue. If they are "issued out," they don't want to worry or think about any problems now.
the figure was talland gaunt and shrouded from heard to foot in the habiliments of the grave.
what does the word habiliments is used for in the sentece?
