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. Liam Payne:

    Anger, isolation, violence, substance misuse, all stem from the same place – and these are not unique to the military. To truly make a difference to veterans and their families, of course we must help those in need, but we must focus on solving the problem at source, for me, this issue is personal. My time in the Army gave me the strongest respect for everyone who wears the uniform. It is a community I am proud to belong to, and I will always seek out anyway that I can to support it.

  2. Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah:

    Yes, the Saudis are angry with us, i understand the Saudi anger. Why? Because when someone fails, the least he can do is get angry.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Manage your Anger, because Anger is a highly deceptive and self-destructive sword. Anger would totally destroy the person who possesses it rather than the people against whom it gets directed. Greek Mythology also teaches us that when Gods wish to destroy someone, they always make her/him angry first. So, manage your Anger effectively, for your own sake, so that Anger would never be able to destroy you; never ever!

  4. RAS CARDO REGGAE:

    ***(C)(P)- DISCHARGE BY DEATH- IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY. I SAY THIS:- THE YOUTHS NOW COME OF AGE, FILLED WITH HATE, ANGER AND RAGE, ALL LEARNED AND CONDITIONED BEHAVIORS FROM ADULTS, AS THEY DISCHARGE BY DEATH UPON THE WORLD'S TECHNOTYRANNICAL STAGE. THEY ALL SEE DEATH AS A WAY OF LIFE. HOW FOOLISH?

  5. Psalms 305 Bible:

    For his anger lasts only a brief moment, and his good favor restores one's life. One may experience sorrow during the night, but joy arrives in the morning.
