Definition of clergyman:
clergy (part of speech: noun)
The clergyman frightened the younger children; they had never seen his like either with respect to his professional robes or his superhuman clerical voice- their imaginations balancing unsteadily between the impossibility of his being a man in a nightgown and the impossibility of his being a woman with a mustache.- "The Mettle of the Pasture", James Lane Allen.
