English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. irate

    Acid, sour, and bitter agree in being contrasted with sweet, but the two former are sharply distinguished from the latter. Acid or sour is the taste of vinegar or lemon-juice; bitter that of quassia, quinine, or strychnine. Acrid is nearly allied to bitter. Pungent suggests the effect of pepper or snuff on the organs of taste or smell; as, a pungent odor. Caustic indicates the corroding effect of some strong chemical, as nitrate of silver. In a figurative sense, as applied to language or character, these words are very closely allied. We say a sour face, sharp words, bitter complaints, caustic wit, cutting irony, biting sarcasm, a stinging taunt, harsh judgment, a tart reply. Harsh carries the idea of intentional and severe unkindness, bitter of a severity that arises from real or supposed ill treatment. The bitter speech springs from the sore heart. Tart and sharp utterances may not proceed from an intention to wound, but merely from a wit recklessly keen; cutting, stinging, and biting speech indicates more or less of hostile intent, the latter being the more deeply malicious. The caustic utterance is meant to burn, perhaps wholesomely, as in the satire of Juvenal or Cervantes. Compare MOROSE.

    Synonyms:
    acerb, acetous, acid, acidulated, acidulous, acrid, acrimonious, biting, bitter, caustic, cutting, harsh, pungent, savage, sharp, sour, stinging, tart, vinegarish, virulent

    Antonyms:
    dulcet, honeyed, luscious, nectared, saccharine, sweet

  3. Chris Cuomo:

    New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits harrassment, start cleaning New York up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships, but dont bring Fredo ! Trump said, tacking on a insult referring to Chris Cuomo, Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference is a nod to The Godfather films, and a character in the film who ultimately betrays Chris Cuomo. The Fredo reference was first made by a Trump supporter last summer in a viral video that saw the television journalist get irate with the man for the insult. In the video, Chris Cuomo says the term was meant as a derogatory term for Chris Cuomo Italian heritage, similar to the N-word for African Americans. ( Punk-a ** b ***** s from the right call me Fredo, Chris Cuomo said in the video. My name is Chris Cuomo. Im an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather. He was a weak brother and they use it as an Italian aspersion.) DHS SUSPENDS GLOBAL ENTRY FOR New Yorkers ; WILL AFFECT 800K OVER 5 YEARS Chris Cuomo had said hes willing to restore federal access to driving records on a limited basis. But in a midday news conference, Chris Cuomo pledged not to let federal immigration agents see lists of people who had applied for a new type of license that doesnt require applicants to prove they are in the U.S. legally. If they think theyre going to extort New York into giving them a database of undocumented people, theyre wrong. I will never do that.
