Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of a thing, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in many forms, such as: physical or verbal maltreatment, injury, assault, violation, rape, unjust practices, crimes, or other types of aggression. To these descriptions, one can also add the Kantian notion of the wrongness of using another human being as means to an end rather than as ends in themselves. Some sources describe abuse as "socially constructed", which means there may be more or less recognition of the suffering of a victim at different times and societies.

வரம்பு மீறல் (Abuse) என்பது ஒரு பொருளின் நியாயமற்ற அல்லது முறையற்ற நன்மைகளைப் பெறுவதற்காக ஈடுபடும் செயல்பாடுகளைக் குறிப்பதாகும். வரம்பு மீறல் என்பது உடல் அல்லது வாய்மொழி வாயிலாக தவறாக நடத்தல், காயம், தாக்குதல்,விதிமீறல், வன்கலவி, நியாயமற்ற நடைமுறைகள், குற்றங்கள் அல்லது பிற வகையான தீங்கு செய்தல் ஆகிய பல வடிவங்களில் நடைபெறலாம். சில ஆதாரங்கள் வரம்பு மீறுதல் என்பது "சமூக ரீதியாக கட்டமைக்கப்பட்டவை" என்று விவரிக்கின்றன, அதாவது வெவ்வேறு காலங்களிலும் சமூகங்களிலும் பாதிக்கப்பட்டவரின் துன்பத்தை அதிகமாகவோ அல்லது குறைவாகவோ அங்கீகரிப்பதாக இருக்கலாம்.
