Etymology[edit]

giant +‎ -ship

Noun[edit]

giantship ‎(countable and uncountable, plural giantships)

  1. The state, personality, or character of a giant.
    • C. S. Lewis
      The real theme [of a story] may be, and perhaps usually is, something that has no sequence in it, something other than a process and much more like a state or quality. Giantship, otherness, the desolation of space, are examples that have crossed our path.
  2. A compellation for a giant.
    His giantship is gone somewhat crestfallen. — Milton.
