Does anyone know what "mein" means?

So, I'm reading Pride and Prejudice, and all of a sudden, I stumble across the word mein? When I looked it up, all I got were Chinese noodle dishes. So, what does mein mean?

Here's the quote: "...but his friend, Mr. Darcy, soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mein..."

    You got it wrong:

    "... but his friend Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien; and the report which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year." http://www.pemberley.com/janeinfo/ppv1n03.html

    mien = demeanor; facial expression or attitude, especially one which is intended by its bearer. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/mien

      I'm guessing it's spelt both ways as it reads in the penguin classics version, 'noble mein'

    To me, worship is putting something or someone first in your life. That is the reason people can worship their job, their money, their family, their "belly", etc. And that is reason people can give worship to those other than Jehovah. But when Jehovah is first is your life, it is to him that you pray, that you sing about, that you speak about, that you read about, that you live for, that you long for, that you look forward to listening to and about, that you seek the approval of, that you study about, that you teach about, that you reach out to. He is your other half in a spiritual relationship. And spirituality cannot be complete without that other half. The definition of worship is multi-faceted, as are the expressions of worship. We speak of "worshiping in many ways". And that is correct. I don't mean all forms of worship are acceptable. But that our worship takes on different facets or expressions. We can't sing and study at the same time. But both are worship. We can't study and pray at the same time. But both are worship. There is more, but I will stop here.

    mein = mien

    Either the spelling changed over the years or it's a regional thing.

    mien (n.): a person's manner, bearing, or appearance, expressing personality or mood

    Source(s): Read Pride and Prejudice.

    mein was literally the two words put together "me" and "in" pronounced mine and means someone's behaviours and personality.
