English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. savage

    Whatever is not civilized is barbarian; barbaric indicates rude magnificence, uncultured richness; as, barbaric splendor, a barbaric melody. Barbarous refers to the worst side of barbarian life, and to revolting acts, especially of cruelty, such as a civilized man would not be expected to do; as, a barbarous deed. We may, however, say barbarous nations, barbarous tribes, without implying anything more than want of civilization and culture. Savage is more distinctly bloodthirsty than barbarous. In this sense we speak of a savage beast and of barbarous usage.

    Synonyms:
    atrocious, barbarian, barbaric, barbarous, brutal, cruel, inhuman, merciless, rude, uncivilized, uncouth, untamed

    Antonyms:
    civilized, courtly, cultured, delicate, elegant, graceful, humane, nice, polite, refined, tender, urbane
