geniality (countable and uncountable, plural genialities)

  1. The quality of being genial.
    Sometimes this throat uttered Yes, sometimes it uttered No; sometimes it made inquiries about a time worn denizen of the place. Once it surprised her notions by remarking upon the friendliness and geniality written in the faces of the hills around. — Thomas Hardy, Return of the Native, Chapter 3.
