Background / Comments
Our word is another useful word to use in conversation; it helps the one using to remember the word, and would, no doubt, be instructive to those hearing him. Our word comes from the Middle English word condigne, which came from Anglo French, which came from the Latin word condignus, made up of com- (completely) and dignus (worthy). This latter word is the source of our word ‘dignity’.
