First, let’s deal with the pronunciation. There are several ways of pronouncing this word. The simplest way is to pronounce the first `e’ like the `e’ in `set’, `pet’, and `let’; the following `ee’ like the `ee’ in `feel’, `peel’, and `heel’. The `o’ sounds like the `o’ in `hot’, `pot’, and `dot’, and the `y’ like the `i’ in `hit’, `pit’, and `sit’. The final `a’ is like the `a’ in `china’, and the main stress is on the third syllable `mos’. Remember, this is just one of the ways of pronouncing the word.
Not all dictionaries include this word. Eleemosynary is mostly used in formal contexts, and it means relating to charity or the giving of alms.
Example: We intend to provide eleemosynary assistance to the poor in our neighbourhood.
