English edit

Etymology edit

Borrowed from Portuguese albino and Spanish albino.

Pronunciation edit

Adjective edit

albino (not comparable)

  1. Congenitally lacking melanin pigmentation in the skin, eyes, and hair or feathers (or more rarely only in the eyes); born with albinism.

Usage notes edit

  • The term is considered offensive by some (when used as a term for human beings); "albinistic" is a possible alternative.[1]
  • The term is not comparative: one either has albinism (a recessive genetic trait) or does not. While the effects of albinism may be more marked in some individuals, this does not make those individuals "more albino" than others. To the extent that it could be comparable, perhaps in metaphoric usage, the comparatives would be more/most/less/least albino (not *albinoer, *albinest, etc).
