To the French, sudden wind is dignified (6)


I believe the answer is:


'dignified' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'to the french sudden wind' is the wordplay.
'to the french' becomes 'au'.
'sudden wind' becomes 'gust' (I've seen this before).

'is' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for august that I've seen before include "could get sunburned this time of year!" , "Month named after emperor of Rome" , "It follows 8" , "Month befitting a lord" , "when students are down?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
