English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fright

    Alarm, according to its derivation all'arme, "to arms," is an arousing to meet and repel danger, and may be quite consistent with true courage. Affright and fright express sudden fear which, for the time at least, overwhelms courage. The sentinel discovers with alarm the sudden approach of the enemy; the unarmed villagers view it with affright. Apprehension, disquietude, dread, misgiving, and solicitude are in anticipation of danger; consternation, dismay, and terror are overwhelming fear, generally in the actual presence of that which is terrible, though these words also may have an anticipative force. Timidity is a quality, habit, or condition, a readiness to be affected with fear. A person of great timidity is constantly liable to needless alarm and even terror. Compare FEAR.

    Synonyms:
    affright, alarm, apprehension, consternation, dismay, disquietude, dread, fear, misgiving, panic, solicitude, terror, timidity

    Antonyms:
    assurance, calmness, confidence, repose, security

    Preposition:
    Alarm was felt in the camp, among the soldiers, at the news.
