the quality of being unresponsive; not reacting; as a quality of people, it is marked by a failure to respond quickly or with emotion to people or events;
"she began to recover from her numb unresponsiveness after the accident"
"in an instant all the deadness and withdrawal were wiped away"
the physical property of something that has lost its elasticity;
"he objected to the deadness of the tennis balls"
the inanimate property of something that has died
- Can make a soliloquy for you to disturb the peripheral deadness.
- The safe, numb deadness did not come back, and I got more anxious with every minute that passed without its return.
