Pronounced: skrowge, verb (alt pronunction: skrooge)
Notes: I confused this word with “scourge” (so I was really wrong)
The word longanimity means “a disposition to bear injuries patiently; forbearance”
Our word showed up in English in the 1400s
Background / Comments
My first guess was that it was a synonym of longevity, and wasn’t based on anything substantive. But when I tried to parse “long” with “animity”, I though of animus, and guess an long-standing argument or feud. Anyway, this word comes from the Late Latin word longanimis (patient; long-suffering). This word comes from Latin longus (long) combined with animus (soul).
