de minimis Search for pronunciation examples


adj. (dee-minnie-miss) Latin for "of minimum importance" or "trifling." Essentially it refers to something or a difference that is so little, small, minuscule or tiny that the law does not refer to it and will not consider it. In a million dollar deal, a $10 mistake is de minimis.

    Escribo y me gusta escribir cuentos y relatos en español en mis tiempos libres. Por desgracia no me atrevo aún a escribir en francés; aunque en un futuro no muy lejano tal vez lo haga... Es con este fin que me inscribí en este portal. Sobre todo para enriquecer mi léxico, mi vocabulario, etc., auxiliándome, además, en la utilización de los diversos diccionarios y enciclopedias que se manejan en el sitio. Me interesa sobremanera el famoso y consabido Diccionario de María Moliner, que es el que más uso. Soy mexicano y vivo al sur de la Ciudad de México con una fuerte influencia y admiración hacia la cultura y civilización gala desde niño... ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que amen el español y el francés tal como yo! ¡ Bienvenidos todos aquellos que gusten de las culturas y civilizaciones iberoamericanas y, sobre todo, que les plazca y que gusten mi hermoso y maravilloso país!
