English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. anger

    Displeasure is the mildest and most general word. Choler and ire, now rare except in poetic or highly rhetorical language, denote a still, and the latter a persistent, anger. Temper used alone in the sense of anger is colloquial, tho we may correctly say a hot temper, a fiery temper, etc. Passion, tho a word of far wider application, may, in the singular, be employed to denote anger; "did put me in a towering passion," Shakespeare Hamlet act v, sc. 2. Anger is violent and vindictive emotion, which is sharp, sudden, and, like all violent passions, necessarily brief. Resentment (a feeling back or feeling over again) is persistent, the bitter brooding over injuries. Exasperation, a roughening, is a hot, superficial intensity of anger, demanding instant expression. Rage drives one beyond the bounds of prudence or discretion; fury is stronger yet, and sweeps one away into uncontrollable violence. Anger is personal and usually selfish, aroused by real or supposed wrong to oneself, and directed specifically and intensely against the person who is viewed as blameworthy. Indignation is impersonal and unselfish displeasure at unworthy acts (Latin indigna), i. e., at wrong as wrong. Pure indignation is not followed by regret, and needs no repentance; it is also more self-controlled than anger. Anger is commonly a sin; indignation is often a duty. Wrath is deep and perhaps vengeful displeasure, as when the people of Nazareth were "filled with wrath" at the plain words of Jesus (Luke iv, 28); it may, however, simply express the culmination of righteous indignation without malice in a pure being; as, the wrath of God. Impatience, fretfulness, irritation, peevishness, pettishness, petulance, and vexation express the slighter forms of anger. Irritation, petulance, and vexation are temporary and for immediate cause. Fretfulness, pettishness, and peevishness are chronic states finding in any petty matter an occasion for their exercise. Compare ACRIMONY; ENMITY; HATRED.

    Synonyms:
    animosity, choler, displeasure, exasperation, fretfulness, fury, impatience, indignation, ire, irritation, offense, passion, peevishness, pettishness, petulance, rage, resentment, temper, vexation, wrath

    Antonyms:
    amiability, charity, forbearance, gentleness, leniency, lenity, long-suffering, love, mildness, patience, peace, peaceableness, peacefulness, self-control, self-restraint

    Preposition:
    Anger at the insult prompted the reply. Anger toward the offender exaggerates the offense.

How to use Anger in a sentence?

  1. Phil Mickelson:

  2. Jacinda Ardern:

    There have rightly been questions around how this could have happened here. In a place that prides itself on being open, peaceful, diverse. And there is anger that it has happened here.

  3. Francis Quarles:

    Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.

  4. William Shakespeare, Taming of the Shrew:

    My tongue will tell the anger of mine heart, Or else my heart, concealing it, will break.

  5. John Kasich:

    Some who feed off of the fears and anger that is felt by some of Donald Trump or Ted Cruz and exploit it feed their own insatiable desire for fame or attention. That could drive America down into a ditch, not make Donald Trump or Ted Cruz great again.
