ASSUAGEMENT

ASSUAGEMENT
Pronounced: <AH-SWAY-JE-MENT>

Means: To give relief.

My use: Having a foot bath is an assuagement for sore feet.



Literary:
Do you find amusment,
to take your cares away,
then it is an assuagement,
and makes better your day
~ E. Carruthers

Memory trick:
ass . uage . ment
ass reminds of assist
uage sounds like away
assist  away

n. [OF. assouagement, asuagement.] Mitigation; abatement.
