Pronunciation /ˈswɔːðɪnəs/


See swarthy

‘A man, probably in his 70s, he has a swarthiness from what looked like a fading tan; jowlish, with heavy-lidded drooping eyes, a high forehead with a full head of dark brown hair brushed back and a cashmere overcoat casually slung like a cape over his just slightly stooped shoulders.’
  • ‘I smeared my face with Jolen creme bleach, trying to obliterate my swarthiness.’
