English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. grunt

    To complain is to give utterance to dissatisfaction or objection, express a sense of wrong or ill treatment. One complains of a real or assumed grievance; he may murmur through mere peevishness or ill temper; he repines, with vain distress, at the irrevocable or the inevitable. Complaining is by speech or writing; murmuring is commonly said of half-repressed utterance; repining of the mental act alone. One may complain of an offense to the offender or to others; he remonstrates with the offender only. Complain has a formal and legal meaning, which the other words have not, signifying to make a formal accusation, present a specific charge; the same is true of the noun complaint.

    Synonyms:
    complain, croak, find fault, growl, grumble, murmur, remonstrate, repine

    Antonyms:
    applaud, approve, commend, eulogize, laud, praise

    Preposition:
    Complain of a thing to a person; of one person to another, of or against a person for an act; to an officer; before the court; about a thing.

How to use grunt in a sentence?

  1. Belarusian Victoria Azarenka on Tuesday:

    I'm so tired of these questions all the time, it's so in a way annoying because guys grunt. I was practicing next to Nadal, and he grunts louder than me, and nobody notices that. Why ? I don't understand why.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    To be, or not to be that is the question Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them To die to sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to,--'t is a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep To sleep perchance to dream ay, there's the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.

  3. Stephen Butler Leacock:

    The mayor gave no other answer than that deep guttural grunt which is technically known in municipal interviews as refusing to commit oneself.

  4. Thomas Witte:

    All those equids that are doing the grunt work and supporting their human families in developing parts of the world -- the mules and donkeys -- they get very little in the way of veterinary care and very little in the way of attention.

  5. Pierre Elliott Trudeau:

    Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt. (On relations with the US)
