De*bil"i*ty (?), n. [L.
debilitas, fr. debilis weak, prob. fr. de- +
habilis able: cf. F. débilité. See
Able, a.] The state of being weak;
weakness; feebleness; languor.
The inconveniences of too strong a perspiration, which

Syn. -- Debility, Infirmity,
Imbecility. An infirmity belongs, for the most part,
to particular members, and is often temporary, as of the eyes, etc.
Debility is more general, and while it lasts impairs the
ordinary functions of nature. Imbecility attaches to the whole
frame, and renders it more or less powerless. Debility may be
constitutional or may be the result or superinduced causes;
Imbecility is always constitutional; infirmity is
accidental, and results from sickness or a decay of the frame. These
words, in their figurative uses, have the same distinctions; we speak
of infirmity of will, debility of body, and an
Imbecility which affects the whole man; but Imbecility
is often used with specific reference to feebleness of mind.
