It’s [Adjective] Monday!

Posted by MyLaowai on Monday, January 26, 2009

Today’s adjective is:


Definition: 1. one who renounces one’s own rights, claims, interest, etc., esp. in favour of those of others

Pronunciation: self-ri-nuhn-see-to-ry, self-

Origin: 1785–95

Example: In voluntarily and willingly setting aside any and all prior rights to their country, their land, their possessions, their freedoms, and their lives, in favour of the Han people of China under the glorious leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, the Tibetan People have shown themselves to be most self-renunciatory slaves subjects.

    My all time favourite is the word “incorrigible”, which I have used time and again to describe the likes of JR.
