Word of the Day
Definition: Disdainful or cynically derisive, especially in facial or verbal expression.
Usage: "Sarcastic" implies a derision intended to hurt someone. "Ironic" implies an amusingly provocative disparity between intended or done and what is said. "Sardonic" implies a cynical derision expressed either verbally or facially.
Suggested Usage: Sardonic remarks often follow ambiguous statements: "Joe is an unusual wit,' said Fred. 'That's true,' Marge remarked sardonically," or fit ridiculous situations: "Murray's marriage proposal received nothing but a sardonic smile from Eloise."
Etymology: From Greek sardanios "scornful (smiles or laughter)" from "sardane," a Sardinian plant (Sardinian crowfoot, Ranunculus Sardous) which causes grimacing when eaten. Later Greek authors wrote "sardonios" (from Sardo "Sardinia") which the French borrowed as "sardonique," whence the English word. –Dr. Language, YourDictionary.com
