  1. mock

    A sneer may be simply a contemptuous facial contortion, or it may be some brief satirical utterance that throws a contemptuous side-light on what it attacks without attempting to prove or disprove; a depreciatory implication may be given in a sneer such as could only be answered by elaborate argument or proof, which would seem to give the attack undue importance:

    Who can refute a sneer?

    Paley Moral Philosophy bk. v, ch. ix.

    A fling is careless and commonly pettish; a taunt is intentionally insulting and provoking; the sneer is supercilious; the taunt is defiant. The jeer and gibe are uttered; the gibe is bitter, and often sly or covert; the jeer is rude and open. A scoff may be in act or word, and is commonly directed against that which claims honor, reverence, or worship. Compare BANTER.

How to use mock in a sentence?

  1. Andy Boucher:

    Tourney, the true form of jousting, is open combat between large groups of people in fields — basically, a mock battle, they just laid into each other with blunted weapons, which is another reason we think he might be a knight, because none of the wounds to him are caused by sharp weapons. They're all caused by blunt-force trauma.

  2. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley:

    I saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.

  3. Kevin Healy:

    These are mock blood vessels, they are similar to blood vessels. The fluid that we are interested in comes across this tissue and then it bathes it with the drug, we give it caffeine, heart-on-a-chip beats and accelerates its heart rate. We give it adrenaline, it accelerates its heart rate.

  4. La Fontaine:

    We ought never to mock the wretched, for who can be sure of being always happy?

  5. Donald Trump:

    I was not imitating. I would never -- who would ever do that? If somebody had a disability, who would mock a disability? I would never. I'm a smart person ... Who would ever mock somebody, especially if you're running for office? i would have not done it, because it's confusing.
