verb (used without object)
 1. to be frugal; get along on a scanty allowance: Don’t stint on the food. They stinted for years in order to save money.
 2. Archaic. to cease action; desist.
verb (used with object)

Didn’t really expect this book to be quite the source of new vocabulary words that it is. I guess I might say the author did not stint her use of obtuse vocabulary.
