Niggardly – English editing.

Niggardly has no historical connection with nigger, but because it sounds like it, and probably because it is at the same time a derogatory term, meaning ‘ungenerous with money, time, etc.’ or ‘mean’, it is wise to avoid it. Politicians, both in the US and the UK, have been embarrassed by having uttered it in all innocence and then realized it is politically incorrect.
