Did You Know?
Our evidence shows remuneration to be most at home in writing that concerns financial matters, especially when large amounts of money-or other forms of compensation-are involved. Whether it's because money denotes numerals, or simply because the "n" and "m" are adjacent to each other on our keyboards, "reMUNeration" appears misspelled as "reNUMeration" to a rather inordinate degree in an electronic database of published periodicals. (Renumeration, a very rare word, means "to enumerate [to count or list] again.") It pays to know that the "-mun-" in remuneration is from Latin munus, meaning "gift," a root it shares with munificent, an adjective which means "very liberal in giving."
