Slight \Slight\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Slighted; p. pr. & vb. n. Slighting.] To disregard, as of little value and unworthy of notice; to make light of; as, to slight the divine commands. --Milton.

[1913 Webster] Syn: To neglect; disregard; disdain; scorn. Usage: Slight, Neglect. To slight is stronger than to neglect. We may neglect a duty or person from inconsiderateness, or from being over-occupied in other concerns. To slight is always a positive and intentional act, resulting from feelings of dislike or contempt. We ought to put a kind construction on what appears neglect on the part of a friend; but when he slights us, it is obvious that he is our friend no longer. [1913 Webster] Beware . . . lest the like befall . . . If they transgress and slight that sole command. --Milton. [1913 Webster] This my long-sufferance, and my day of grace, Those who neglect and scorn shall never taste. --Milton. [1913 Webster]
