(third-person singular simple present mentors, present participle mentoring, simple past and past participle mentored)
- To act as someone's mentor
From French mentor, from Ancient Greek ÎœÎÎ½Ï„Ï‰Ï (MentÅr, “Mentor"), a mythological character in the Odyssey, whose name, a historical name from Ancient Greece, may share the same root as English mind. Akin to Sanskrit à¤®à¤¨à¥à¤¤à¥ƒ (mantá¹›, “one who thinks") and Latin monitor (“one who admonishes"), and perhaps ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *mon-eyo-, causative form of *men- (“to think").
From Ancient Greek ÎœÎÎ½Ï„Ï‰Ï (MentÅr, “Mentor").
