Tips: August often indicates something or someone of high social rank or importance. For a memory trick, think of august people with high social rank or importance attending a daytime party in the month of August. How would they dress? Most likely in suits since they are "high society," so they will look sweaty and uncomfortable, which is ironic and funny.

Usage Examples:

The students on the tour stared in awe at the august halls of the famed university. (magnificent, impressive, imposing)

The philanthropist was an august member of society. (venerable, noble, dignified)

The large and august courtroom made everyone act more seriously and respectfully. (imposing, impressive)
