English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fierce

    Fierce signifies having a furious and cruel nature, or being in a furious and cruel mood, more commonly the latter. It applies to that which is now intensely excited, or liable to intense and sudden excitement. Ferocious refers to a state or disposition; that which is fierce flashes or blazes; that which is ferocious steadily burns; we speak of a ferocious animal, a fierce passion. A fiery spirit with a good disposition is quickly excitable in a good cause, but may not be fierce or ferocious. Savage signifies untrained, uncultivated. Ferocious always denotes a tendency to violence; it is more distinctly bloodthirsty than the other words; a person may be deeply, intensely cruel, and not at all ferocious; a ferocious countenance expresses habitual ferocity; a fierce countenance may express habitual fierceness, or only the sudden anger of the moment. That which is wild is simply unrestrained; the word may imply no anger or harshness; as, wild delight, wild alarm.

    ferocious, fiery, furious, impetuous, raging, savage, uncultivated, untrained, violent, wild

    Antonyms:
    affectionate, docile, gentle, harmless, kind, mild, patient, peaceful, submissive, sweet, tame, tender

How to use fierce in a sentence?

  1. Margaret Mead:

    Women should be permitted to volunteer for non-combat service, they should not be accepted, voluntarily or through the draft, as combat soldiers. We know of no comparable ways of training women and girls, and we have no real way of knowing whether the kinds of training that teach men both courage and restraint would be adaptable to women or effective in a crisis. But the evidence of history and comparative studies of other species suggest that women as a fighting body might be far less amenable to the rules that prevent warfare from becoming a massacre and, with the use of modern weapons, that protect the survival of all humanity. This is what I meant by saying that women in combat might be too fierce.

  2. Karena Dawn:

    You have your fit challenge, which is a workout of the day; you have your fierce challenge, which is that challenge that makes you step out of your comfort zone and try something new; and then there is that fabulous challenge, and that’s taking care of yourself— it’s the beauty, it’s nurturing your body and your mind.

  3. Omar Zwak:

    Taliban insurgents attacked our security outposts on Sunday but faced fierce resistance from Afghan forces and were pushed back.

  4. Mustafa Bali:

    Nothing remains in Baghouz except for terrorists. The battle ... will not end until the elimination of Daesh and the liberation of the village, we expect a fierce and heavy battle.

  5. Milad Zwai:

    Special forces stopped a fierce attack, we used all available weapons including heavy guns.
