Example sentences for: altrusian

How can you use “altrusian” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • blessed them in the sacred Altrusian tongue,

  • There is no law against combining bogus, ad hoc , “foreign” words and the real thing in one breath, just as Keillor's narrator does in his “Altrusian” blessing, juxtaposing what is obviously nonsense next to genuine Latin ( domino ) and Hebrew ( shadrach, meshach, abednego ). Likewise, in ancient Greek magical texts snippets of Egyptian, Hebrew, Aramaic, Coptic, and Babylonian words and proper names commingle in happy abandon with endless concatenations of gibberish, producing a veritable Babelian babble to challenge the ingenuity of Indo-European and Semitist scholars alike two thousand years later, as they wrangle with these more-than-sesquipedalian creations of Greco-Egyptian magical fantasy.
