English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. raging

    Fierce signifies having a furious and cruel nature, or being in a furious and cruel mood, more commonly the latter. It applies to that which is now intensely excited, or liable to intense and sudden excitement. Ferocious refers to a state or disposition; that which is fierce flashes or blazes; that which is ferocious steadily burns; we speak of a ferocious animal, a fierce passion. A fiery spirit with a good disposition is quickly excitable in a good cause, but may not be fierce or ferocious. Savage signifies untrained, uncultivated. Ferocious always denotes a tendency to violence; it is more distinctly bloodthirsty than the other words; a person may be deeply, intensely cruel, and not at all ferocious; a ferocious countenance expresses habitual ferocity; a fierce countenance may express habitual fierceness, or only the sudden anger of the moment. That which is wild is simply unrestrained; the word may imply no anger or harshness; as, wild delight, wild alarm.

How to use raging in a sentence?

  1. Karim Hijazi:

    The fact that were seeing something as old as Ramnit show up in WHOs network is a really bad sign. This trojans activity that weve been tracking as it beacons back to the attackers network is just the smoke of what is probably a much bigger fire going on inside their network, it could be a raging inferno on the inside. If something as ancient as Ramnit can get through their defenses, they have much bigger problems. It means newer malware probably doesnt have much trouble slipping in too.

  2. Adam Preset:

    In enterprise, the video battle has been raging for some time between a few of the most well-known technology companies, now what we're seeing is a spillover as video calls become more necessary and more prominent for consumers. It's risky to join this fray right now.

  3. Robert Smith:

    Knowing that everything's futile but still fighting, still raging against the dying of the light -- that's what motivates me all the time ... If you hold that sense of futility in your head for too long, it can begin to eat into you. You can still be aware of it but find a place for it where you can actually exist comfortably and enjoy things.

  4. Kate Bosworth:

    She was a beautiful and complex woman: A sister, a daughter, a wife, a lover. Human. Her life has for too long been overshadowed by the tragedy orchestrated by a raging psychopath, now, more than ever, we feel it is important to focus on the woman — to reaffirm the voice of Sharon Tate — and to take away the megaphone from the maniac.

  5. Daniel Radcliffe:

    Everyone always seems amazed that I'm not a raging monster as a human being from growing up in the industry so young, the only people that aren't amazed by that are people who know my parents because, I'm there son so it makes sense that I would turn out okay. I owe them my sanity and they're amazing.
