Pronunciation[edit]

(file)

Noun[edit]

atvainošana f (4th declension)

  1. excusing; apology; verbal noun of atvainot
    grēksūdze nav arī sevis atvainošana — (religious) confession is not simply excusing oneself
    patiešai atvainošanai jāliek justies labāk, kā arī tā visbiežāk rada vēlēšanos kļūt labākam cilvēkam un iepriecināt otru — genuinely excusing (= a genuine apology) must make one feel better, and it also most often causes the desire to become a better person and to please other (people)
