'Stall for time' nghĩa là câu giờ, trì hoãn (to cause a delay intentionally).

Ví dụ
To stall for time until a professional negotiator arrived, Tsang began talking to the man.

We also need to gerrymander (sắp xếp gian lận những khu vực bỏ phiếu để giành phần thắng trong cuộc tuyển cử) along racial lines to guarantee wins, then stall for time before complying with the unamimous court decision.

The piece also mentions that Anthem, and in particular Jeff Jarrett, are currently looking to stall for time in the hopes of dissuading (can gián, can ngăn) the Hardys from pursuing the matter any further.

Those who would rather stall for time and argue that it is wise to wait for greater certainty will find instead that the climate system is moving into new unexpected regimes.
