Remunerative

Remunerative

Pronounced:
<re-mewn-er-ra-tiv>
Making a good profit.
 
My use:
My pay is now very remunerative.  It shows that learning is valuable.

Literary use:
By Poe
The want of an international Copy-Right Law, by rendering it nearly impossible to obtain anything from the booksellers in the way of remuneration for literary labor, has had the effect of forcing many of our very best writers into the service of the Magazines and Reviews.


Memory trick:
re . mune . r . ative

re (reminds of) = to reap or gather
mune (reminds of) = money
r (reminds of) = are
ative (reminds of) = active
reap money are active


Listen: Remunerative
