English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. umbrage

    Pique, from the French, signifies primarily a prick or a sting, as of a nettle; the word denotes a sudden feeling of mingled pain and anger, but slight and usually transient, arising from some neglect or offense, real or imaginary. Umbrage is a deeper and more persistent displeasure at being overshadowed (Latin umbra, a shadow) or subjected to any treatment that one deems unworthy of him. It may be said, as a general statement, that pique arises from wounded vanity or sensitiveness, umbrage from wounded pride or sometimes from suspicion. Resentment rests on more solid grounds, and is deep and persistent. Compare ANGER.

    Synonyms:
    displeasure, grudge, irritation, offense, pique, resentment

    Antonyms:
    approval, complacency, contentment, delight, gratification, pleasure, satisfaction
