Freebase

  1. Younger

    Younger is a Scottish convention, style of address or description traditionally used by the Heir Apparent to:- 1. A current Laird 2. Someone whose name includes a territorial designation 3. A Scottish chieftainship 4. A clan chief. 5. A Scottish Baron, only if also a Laird and recognised by the Lord Lyon as such. The style of using the term "Younger" applies equally to a woman who is heir in her own right as to a man. The style of "Younger" is neither a title of nobility nor a peerage and does not carry voting rights either in the Parliament of Scotland or the Kingdom of England. The abbreviation of Younger is Yr. The wife of such an heir may adopt this style also. When a person bearing this suffix becomes the Laird in their own right or succeeds to the arms of a now landless family or inherits the chieftainship of a cadet branch or the chiefship of the clan, they then drop the suffix and the next heir apparent may add the style to their name.

Examples of younger in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    During my childhood, we were taught by our parents to treat all elderly women as mothers, and younger women as sisters. We were taught to believe that women, just like men, are created in the image of God, and must be treated with love, dignity and respect. These life's lessons from my childhood still remain close to my heart, regardless of time, place or society that I live in. I do hope that we'll continue to teach the same precious lessons to our children, so that they'll also treat every woman with love, dignity and respect - as their own mother or sister or daughter, as a divine image of God, and not as an object of desire to be ogled and fantasized about. In my view, real men always treat women with Equality and Respect they rightfully deserve.

    The fact that we’re playing the four games this year, Week 1 and Week 4 will be huge games for the younger players.

You’re able to get your starters and guys you have history with, you can get most of your work done in the practices. This is about the development of your roster, the competition of your roster. And what better way to let these guys compete than these preseason games.
