“It is also used when a person of distinction in a profession retires or hands over the position, enabling their former rank to be retained in their title, e.g., “Professor Emeritus”.
” You can see more explanations as stated below: Emeritus (/əˈmɛrɪtəs/),[Note 1] in its current usage, is an adjective used to designate a retired Chairperson, Professor, Pastor, Bishop, Pope, Director, President, Prime Minister, Rabbi, Emperor, or other person, In some cases, the term is conferred automatically upon all persons who retire at a given rank, but in others, it remains a mark of distinguished service, awarded only to a few on retirement”.
“The term emeritus does not necessarily signify that a person has relinquished all the duties of their former position, and they may continue to exercise some of them”.
