Pronunciation

Adjective

albino (not comparable)

Positive
albino

Comparative
not comparable

Superlative
none (absolute)

  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

  • Considered by some to be offensive when used as a term for human beings; more neutral language being "albinistic".
  • Not properly 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.
