  1. Count

    Count or Countess is a title in European countries for a noble of varying status, but historically deemed to convey an approximate rank intermediate between the highest and lowest titles of nobility. The word count came into English from the French comte, itself from Latin comes—in its accusative comitem—meaning "companion", and later "companion of the emperor, delegate of the emperor". The adjective form of the word is "comital". The British and Irish equivalent is an earl. Alternative names for the "Count" rank in the nobility structure are used in other countries, such as Graf in Germany and Hakushaku during the Japanese Imperial era.

Examples of Count in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    The life you are living presently is a rare opportunity being denied to many people out there. Thus, endeavour to cherish, utilize and maximize the life you've been given by God. I mean, from now onward, strive to make it count like never before i.e. you've got to engage and indulge yourself only on what really matters. Besides, do disassociate yourself from whoever and whatever that doesn't count. Listen up, although the life you are enjoying currently seems to be your own life to some extent. But never forget, the life in question is not actually yours. Yes! it's for rent. And so, the real owner (God) may decide to withdraw it from you even sooner than you expect it. Therefore, apply your heart unto wisdom and afterwards strive to make your life count.

  2. Grigor Dimitrov:

Even though I wanted to play my game and my rhythm, against players like that it's never easy. You have to pull something else out of the bag.
