POLITESSE

PRONUNCIATION: (pol-i-TES, po-lee-)

MEANING: noun: Formal politeness or courtesy.

ETYMOLOGY: From Old French politesse (cleanness, polished state), from Italian politezza (polish, smoothness), from Latin polire (to polish). Ultimately from the Indo-European root pel- (skin or hide), which also gave us pelt, pillion, and film. Earliest documented use: 1683.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Every great institution is the lengthened shadow of a single man. His character determines the character of the organization. -Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher (25 May 1803-1882)
