May's Vocabulary word

So I’m having a hard time coming up with words that are truly NEW to me. I think when one reads as much as I did before kids (ha), one comes across a LOT of words. But I am at least finding words that I either have not used myself that I recollect, or that at least don’t get used much. This month’s word was:

–noun, plural -nies.

1. leadership or predominant influence exercised by one nation over others, as in a confederation.
2. leadership; predominance.
3. (esp. among smaller nations) aggression or expansionism by large nations in an effort to achieve world domination.

I’d rather not get into the context in which the word was used.
