English Synonyms and Antonyms
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.

How to use ridicule in a sentence?
Today we filed the 24th case alleging sexual misconduct against Deshaun Watson. The allegations made in this new case are strikingly similar to those made by many of the other victims. Lost in the media frenzy surrounding Deshaun Watson is that these are 24 strong, courageous women who, despite ridicule, legal shenanigans and intense media scrutiny, continue to stand firm for what is right.
Ridicule is a public confession of fear.
[The left] completely has turned the term racism into a punchline, they have gone beyond crying wolf. They have made the boy who cried wolf look like a stable and reliable character, and they totally made a mockery of the term and trivialized it to the point of ridicule.
Fait intéressant, il est l'imperfection qui fait de belles choses, même si ce point de vue peut sembler labyrinthique. La perfection absolue est souvent inaccessible en réalité, et pourtant tant de choses imparfaites peut être à couper le souffle. il doit donc être nos imperfections qui nous rendent si unique - et donc plus belle à mon humble avis. I aime ce que Marilyn Monroe a dit il ya des décennies: "Imperfection est la beauté, la folie est le génie, et il vaut mieux être absolument ridicule absolument ennuyeux." Donc, aller de l'avant et de célébrer votre differentness - y compris vos imperfections qui vous rendent belle.
Ridicule is the best test of truth.
