English Vocabulary


Synonym of shouting

In the lesson 'Workers Of The World Unite (Scene 4 of 6)' you refuse 'hurling' as synonymous with 'shouting'. In the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionnary, 'to hurl insults' means 'to shout insults'. So, would you mind explaining your point of view please ? Thanks a lot.

  • Hello Noëlle,
    You're right on the money, Noëlle, "to hurl insults" has more or less the same meaning than "to shout insults",
    BUT "to hurl" means "lancer" and is therefore not synonym with "to shout" wich means "hurler"...
    Best regards,
    Thierry
