    If you don't know the meaning of the word "sanguiine," could you guess it from the use of the word in the sentence below? That's context.

    She is quite sanguine about her future with her degree in computer arts and science, especially in light of what is happening in companies such as Pixar.

    Sorry -- typo!! It should be "sanguine" without the extra "i" in there!
