English lacks this word, having only he ambiguous 'free'.
Free-as-in-beer, as opposed to libre (free-as-in-speech). I have now separated these two definitions from free and use them when appropriate (rather than just using "free").
Gra"tis (?), adv. [L., contr. fr. gratiis out of favor or kindness, without recompense, for nothing, fr. gratia favor. See Grace.]
For nothing; without fee or recompense; freely; gratuitously.
