Definition of Motherly

Motherly
Motherly Moth"er*ly, a. [AS. m[=o]dorlic.] Of or pertaining to a mother; like, or suitable for, a mother; tender; maternal; as, motherly authority, love, or care. --Hooker. Syn: Maternal; paternal. Usage: Motherly, Maternal. Motherly, being Anglo-Saxon, is the most familiar word of the two when both have the same meaning. Besides this, maternal is confined to the feelings of a mother toward her own children, whereas motherly has a secondary sense, denoting a care like that of a mother for her offspring. There is, perhaps, a growing tendency thus to separate the two, confining motherly to the latter signification. ``They termed her the great mother, for her motherly care in cherishing her brethren whilst young.' --Sir W. Raleigh.
Motherly
Motherly Moth"er*ly, adv. In a manner of a mother.
