  1. annoyance

    Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

How to use annoyance in a sentence?

  1. Prashant Agarwal:

    In our day to day life we go through various activities which may involve high work pressure and high workload and as per us, we feel that this burden of work is resulting in causing frustration. Though we don't realize that it is not the workload which causes this frustration and annoyance but rather it is our negligence in the proper management of that work. If you avoid mismanagement of your work and duties you are likely to face frustration, annoyance, and grievance much lesser.

  2. Mark Cohen:

    For consumers, this is kind of an annoyance.... or a concern depending on the product we're talking about, i do believe inflation will be here for a while and we will see such product adjustments continue to happen.

  3. Ron DeSantis:

    Disney came out against something that was really just about protecting young kids, and making sure that students are able to go to school learning to read, write, add, subtract, and not having a teacher tell them that they can change their gender, and I think most parents agree with that. But you know, that was only a mild annoyance. I think that what we came to realize after that dust settled on that was you clearly had a movement within the corporation itself.

  4. Charles Krauthammer:

    What struck me above all was not the misstatement of facts or the delusions about what's going on, it's the president's tone. There was this lassitude, passivity, annoyance, he was irritable, you know, 'You guys asking me again if the strategy is working,' as if it's all so obvious that it is.

  5. Mo Brooks:

    So far, the supply chain interruptions have been an inconvenience and annoyance that have not reached critical stage, except for the effect on the pricing of the goods that people are purchasing, people in Alabama are having a harder and harder time coming up with the cash that is necessary because of inflation that seems far greater than what the Biden administration claims is occurring.
