English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. mockery

    Banter is the touching upon some fault, weakness, or fancied secret of another in a way half to pique and half to please; badinage is delicate, refined banter. Raillery has more sharpness, but is usually good-humored and well meant. Irony, the saying one thing that the reverse may be understood, may be either mild or bitter. All the other words have a hostile intent. Ridicule makes a person or thing the subject of contemptuous merriment; derision seeks to make the object derided seem utterly despicable — to laugh it to scorn. Chaff is the coarse witticism of the streets, perhaps merry, oftener malicious; jeering is loud, rude ridicule, as of a hostile crowd or mob. Mockery is more studied, and may include mimicry and personal violence, as well as scornful speech. A satire is a formal composition; a sarcasm may be an impromptu sentence. The satire shows up follies to keep people from them; the sarcasm hits them because they are foolish, without inquiring whether it will do good or harm; the satire is plainly uttered; the sarcasm is covert.

    Synonyms:
    badinage, banter, chaff, derision, irony, jeering, raillery, ridicule, sarcasm, satire

  1. Emmanuel Macrons:

    I often say that if the age relationship were to be inverted, it wouldn't shock anybody, people would find it great, she is beautiful, and the fact that she's 20 years older than I am is terrible, because it is an issue of mockery, of terrible discourtesy.
