Vocabulary for today

I guess today’s vocabulary forwarded to my mail by arcamax.com is quite interesting. I want to also practice my vocabulary…here is my sample sentence..

I already went to my lawyer to sue a former friend who betrayed me but due to my clemency, I did not pursue the case anymore. At least, I learned some lessons of what had happened. I hope she also learn some.

Today’s Word “clemency”

clemency KLEM-uhn-see (noun) – 1 : Disposition to forgive and spare, as offenders; mercy. 2 : An act or instance of mercy or leniency. 3 : Mildness, especially of weather.

“If the buccaneers surrendered, he would give them clemency — if they did not he would sail to Maracaibo and would destroy the bucsaneers utterly.” — Shirlee Busbee, ‘Spanish Rose’

Clemency comes from Latin clementia, from clemens, “mild, merciful.”

Digg!
