English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. impertinence

    Impertinence primarily denotes what does not pertain or belong to the occasion or the person, and hence comes to signify interference by word or act not consistent with the age, position, or relation of the person interfered with or of the one who interferes; especially, forward, presumptuous, or meddlesome speech. Impudence is shameless impertinence. What would be arrogance in a superior becomes impertinence or impudence in an inferior. Impertinence has less of intent and determination than impudence. We speak of thoughtless impertinence, shameless impudence. Insolence is literally that which is against custom, i. e., the violation of customary respect and courtesy. Officiousness is thrusting upon others unasked and undesired service, and is often as well-meant as it is annoying. Rudeness is the behavior that might be expected from a thoroughly uncultured person, and may be either deliberate and insulting or unintentional and even unconscious. Compare ARROGANCE; ASSURANCE; EFFRONTERY; PERTNESS.

    Synonyms:
    assurance, boldness, effrontery, forwardness, impudence, incivility, insolence, intrusiveness, officiousness, pertness, presumption, rudeness, sauciness

    Antonyms:
    bashfulness, coyness, diffidence, humility, lowliness, meekness, modesty, submissiveness

    Preposition:
    The impudence of, or impudence from, a subordinate to a superior.

How to use impertinence in a sentence?

  1. Prime Minister Manuel Valls:

    In our country, caricature and impertinence are necessary.

  2. Joseph Addison:

    There are many shining qualities on the mind of man; but none so useful as discretion. It is this which gives a value to all the rest, and sets them at work in their proper places, and turns them to the advantage of their possessor. Without it, learning is pedantry; wit, impertinence; virtue itself looks like weakness; and the best parts only qualify a man to be more sprightly in errors, and active to his own prejudice. Though a man has all other perfections and wants discretion, he will be of no great consequence in the world; but if he has this single talent in perfection, and but a common share of others, he may do what he pleases in his station of life.

  3. Cometan:

    It’s not your lack of knowledge that bothers me, it’s your impertinence to greater knowledge itself.

  4. William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne:

    Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. This is the first step towards becoming either estimable or agreeable; and until it be taken there is no hope. The sooner the discovery is made the better, as there is more time and power for taking advantage of it. Sometimes the great truth is found out too late to apply to it any effectual remedy. Sometimes it is never found at all; and these form the desperate and inveterate causes of folly, self-conceit, and impertinence.
