English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. plaudit

    Praise is the hearty approval of an individual, or of a number or multitude considered individually, and is expressed by spoken or written words; applause, the spontaneous outburst of many at once. Applause is expressed in any way, by stamping of feet, clapping of hands, waving of handkerchiefs, etc., as well as by the voice; acclamation is the spontaneous and hearty approval of many at once, and strictly by the voice alone. Thus one is chosen moderator by acclamation when he receives a unanimous viva voce vote; we could not say he was nominated by applause. Acclaim is the more poetic term for acclamation, commonly understood in a loftier sense; as, a nation's acclaim. Plaudit is a shout of applause, and is commonly used in the plural; as, the plaudits of a throng. Applause is also used in the general sense of praise. Approbation is a milder and more qualified word than praise; while praise is always uttered, approbation may be silent. "Approbation speaks of the thing or action.... Praise is always personal." A. W. and J. C. Hare Guesses at Truth first series, p. 549. [Macmillan & Co. '66.] Acceptance refers to an object or action; approbation may refer to character or natural traits. Approval always supposes a testing or careful examination, and frequently implies official sanction; approbation may be upon a general view. The industry and intelligence of a clerk win his employer's approbation; his decision in a special instance receives his approval. Praise is always understood as genuine and sincere, unless the contrary is expressly stated; compliment is a light form of praise that may or may not be sincere; flattery is insincere and ordinarily fulsome praise.

How to use plaudit in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    The fact regularly faced in telling people first the odd truths is that some don’t openly reflect, but most outrightly reject; and when it turns out to be correct publicly, they accept only to give often its credit to a person who desires plaudit but doesn’t deserve respect.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    Most people don’t give any credit to a person until they see their individual profit only, and even worse is that there are many who don’t even give plaudit to anyone no matter how much he does things good for others. This is enough to know the true nature of everyone especially someone who publicly claims to be selected or elected to the top position of power by the majority of the population.
