English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. racy

    Racy applies in the first instance to the pleasing flavor characteristic of certain wines, often attributed to the soil from which they come. Pungent denotes something sharply irritating to the organs of taste or smell, as pepper, vinegar, ammonia; piquant denotes a quality similar in kind to pungent but less in degree, stimulating and agreeable; pungent spices may be deftly compounded into a piquant sauce. As applied to literary products, racy refers to that which has a striking, vigorous, pleasing originality; spicy to that which is stimulating to the mental taste, as spice is to the physical; piquant and pungent in their figurative use keep very close to their literal sense.

    Synonyms:
    flavorous, forcible, lively, piquant, pungent, rich, spicy, spirited

    Antonyms:
    cold, dull, flat, flavorless, insipid, prosy, stale, stupid, tasteless, vapid
