Lemizh / English dictionary
to do duty as an admiral, general
acRèd. admiral, general
Based on the idea that officers are not always promoted for their capability, acRèd. has been used to refer to people of other professions who are promoted for dubious reasons since Early New Lemizh (and probably earlier, behind closed doors). Contrast oshèc. ‘sergeant’.
