English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. feud

    A feud is enmity between families, clans, or parties, with acts of hostility mutually retaliated and avenged; feud is rarely used of individuals, never of nations. While all the other words of the group may refer to that which is transient, a feud is long-enduring, and often hereditary. Dissension is used of a number of persons, of a party or other organization. Bitterness is in feeling only; enmity and hostility involve will and purpose to oppose or injure. A quarrel is in word or act, or both, and is commonly slight and transient, as we speak of childish quarrels; contention and strife may be in word or deed; contest ordinarily involves some form of action. Contest is often used in a good sense, contention and strife very rarely so. Controversy is commonly in words; strife extends from verbal controversy to the contests of armies. Affray, brawl, and broil, like quarrel, are words of inferior dignity. An affray or broil may arise at a street corner; the affray always involves physical force; the brawl or broil may be confined to violent language.

    Synonyms:
    affray, animosity, bitterness, brawl, broil, contention, contest, controversy, dispute, dissension, enmity, fray, hostility, quarrel, strife

How to use feud in a sentence?

  1. Seth Rogen:

    If someone's trying to murder someone with a baseball bat and someone's yelling at that person to stop, is that a feud between the baseball bat wielder and the person yelling at the baseball bat wilder? Feud implies two people hitting each other with baseball bats. Ted Cruz is a fascist. He denies the reality of the election. His words caused people to die and I'm making jokes about it. Is that a feud? I don't know. To me, it doesn't seem like a feud. To me, it seems I'm pointing out the fact that he's a terrible man whose words have resulted in death.

  2. Andrew Morton:

    Obviously like any mother, Princess Diana would have been very disappointed and quite upset [over the alleged feud], she’d be working towards a reconciliation.

  3. Joe Scarborough:

    Co-host Joy Behar, who was recently forced to apologize for mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith, even pressed Avenatti on whether or not there is actually evidence regarding claims that Stormy Daniels ' was threatened. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is about as anti-Trump as anyone in mainstream media. The former Republican congressman disassociated himself from the GOP amid disagreements with the president and is now a registered Independent. His co-host and fianc, MikaBrzezinski, questions Trump’s mental health on a regular basis and has been on the receiving end of personal attacks from Trump’s Twitter account. But despite the on-going feud with Donald Trump at all, the MSNBC star had a hard time believing some of the details alleged by Stormy Daniels ' after Michael Avenatti built up anticipation. [ Avenatti ] told us two weeks ago that she was threatened with assault and we would find out more on ‘ 60 Minutes, ’ when in fact we found out nothing new on ‘ 60 Minutes. ’.

  4. Rebecca Grant:

    An easy way to paper over the feud is to lift airspace restrictions. Right now, all Qatari Airways flights in and out of Doha pay a fee to fly over Iran since the feud closed other airspace.

  5. Charles Rwomushana:

    The public's eye has concentrated on the feud among politicians but there are cracks in the military, those cracks are a bigger vulnerability for Museveni than anything else... this (return) is to take care of that vulnerability.
