The verb obliterate means to utterly destroy or remove something completely from existing.
Synonyms are destroy, annihilate, abolish or cancel.
The word origins from Latin (1600) obliteratus, past participle of obliterare meaning “cause to disappear, blot out, erase, efface” figuratively “cause to be forgotten”, from ob meaning “against” plus littera (also litera) meaning “letter, script”. It is abstracted from the phrase literas scribere meaning “write across letters, strike out letters.”
