English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. horrible

    Awful should not be used of things which are merely disagreeable or annoying, nor of all that are alarming and terrible, but only of such as bring a solemn awe upon the soul, as in the presence of a superior power; as, the awful hush before the battle. That which is awful arouses an oppressive, that which is august an admiring reverence; we speak of the august presence of a mighty monarch, the awful presence of death. We speak of an exalted station, a grand mountain, an imposing presence, a majestic cathedral, a noble mien, a solemn litany, a stately march, an august assembly, the awful scene of the Judgment Day.

    alarming, appalling, august, awful, dire, direful, dread, dreadful, fearful, frightful, grand, imposing, majestic, noble, portentous, shocking, solemn, stately, terrible, terrific
