Giving Integrity A Voice

History of the word Integrious

The Adjective of Integrity

Oxford English Dictionary

The word integrious has been around for ages. In fact, this word used to be in the Oxford dictionary, but was removed many years ago, due to its obsoletion. Historically, this word is known for a single reference in 1658 by Sir Henry Slingsby who wrote in his diary, “Such was their integrious candor and intimacy to me in my greatest extremes…” as referenced in 1836 by the Oxford dictionary.

The fact that this is only notable documented reference of the word, prior to the internet age (last 10 years), demonstrates its obscurity. There have been a few random journalistic references to the word in the past 5 years which I am compiling.

Slingsby used the word a second time in his journal, “Being so integriously grounded.” By all accounts he seemed to be a man of integrity, but as it turned out his fate wasn’t so kind and he was beheaded for his adherence to the Royalist cause. He was a member of parliament and a Yorkshire landowner in West England.

  9. Jenifer, I appreciate your words and hope you will continue to take an interest in this project. Please join the FB page, where I am building a small community of those who support and believe in the word. I will give some thought to the title which includes the word new.

  10. Good for you–but why refer to it at all as “the new adjective for integrity,” when clearly, there’s nothing new about it? Several years ago, dismayed and puzzled by the lack of an adjective form for such an important concept, I began using “integrous” (which i still rather like)–when I finally got a computer 6-7 yrs. ago, I did a search and found that “integrious,”in fact,existed–an “archaic” adjective that had last appeared in dictionaries back in the 1930′s. In any event, I’m delighted to have found your enterprising site and plan to explore it. Even a cursory glance reveals that some big topics are up for discussion–topics which we ignore at our peril in this addicted, disconnected society. That “integrious” fell into disuse so long ago only speaks to the sad lack of people and institutions to which it can be applied.
