Benignant

Benignant

Pronounced:
<ba-nig-nant>

My use:
You are a benignant person. You are the kindest manager to all your team members.

Means:
Kind and gracious to those who you lead.


Literary use:
By Longfellow
Doubtless criticism was originally benignant, pointing out the beauties of a work rather that its defects.


Memory trick:
beni . gnant
beni (reminds of) = beneficial
gnant  (reminds of) giant
beneficial giant

Listen: Benignant
