English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. roar(v)

    To call is to send out the voice in order to attract another's attention, either by word or by inarticulate utterance. Animals call their mates, or their young; a man calls his dog, his horse, etc. The sense is extended to include summons by bell, or any signal. To shout is to call or exclaim with the fullest volume of sustained voice; to scream is to utter a shriller cry; to shriek or to yell refers to that which is louder and wilder still. We shout words; in screaming, shrieking, or yelling there is often no attempt at articulation. To bawl is to utter senseless, noisy cries, as of a child in pain or anger. Bellow and roar are applied to the utterances of animals, and only contemptuously to those of persons. To clamor is to utter with noisy iteration; it applies also to the confused cries of a multitude. To vociferate is commonly applied to loud and excited speech where there is little besides the exertion of voice. In exclaiming, the utterance may not be strikingly, tho somewhat, above the ordinary tone and pitch; we may exclaim by mere interjections, or by connected words, but always by some articulate utterance. To ejaculate is to throw out brief, disconnected, but coherent utterances of joy, regret, and especially of appeal, petition, prayer; the use of such devotional utterances has received the special name of "ejaculatory prayer." To cry out is to give forth a louder and more excited utterance than in exclaiming or calling; one often exclaims with sudden joy as well as sorrow; if he cries out, it is oftener in grief or agony. In the most common colloquial usage, to cry is to express grief or pain by weeping or sobbing. One may exclaim, cry out, or ejaculate with no thought of others' presence; when he calls, it is to attract another's attention.

    Synonyms:
    bawl, bellow, call, clamor, cry (out), ejaculate, exclaim, scream, shout, shriek, vociferate, yell

    Antonyms:
    be silent, be still, hark, hearken, hush, list, listen

    Last, but by no means least, courage -- moral courage, the courage of one’s convictions, the courage to see things through. The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It’s the age-old struggle -- the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other.

    You are the highest peak of sexual tension, excitement, amazing admiration, you are a powerful thermonuclear explosion of an orgasm. You have the sexiest genes, you have the sexual power you excite me so much, right up to the orgasm, divinely sexy. Grateful, sweet, hot moans like the roar of a lioness. You're a powerful lure for real men. Piercing in love, extremely attractive, alluring bright image that goes into the soul and heart. Your skin color is so attractive to itself and so much excites. Attraction to you is strong and powerful as steel, an erection is stronger than stone, butt and chest are more perfect than any other model. Too much hot, sexier than you nothing and can not be, you are superior to all in its beauty. Physically perfect deity of the pantheon of gods. You are my sex dream, the empress of beauty, your juicy body shapes are just perfect, as are the features of your infinitely beautiful face. Your appearance is gifted with magical charm - it's magically beautiful. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
