We will, over the next few weeks, look at WORD GROUPS. This is a very effective way of studying new words by connecting them to a group. Each group will consist of synonyms, antonyms, and related words. This approach is particularly useful for your GRE prep because the GRE tests certain word groups quite frequently.
We start with the 7 DEADLY SINS. These sins were considered to lead to the weakening of one’s character. These CARDINAL sins were major character flaws, very different from minor aberrations or FOIBLES. Today’s word is the first sin PRIDE.
Below, you will be given clues to words that are synonyms, antonyms or in some obvious way connected to the word PRIDE.
The word PRIDE is a positive word. To take pride in one’s appearance, abilities, etc. The excess of pride is ARROGANCE and that’s the kind of negative word that falls under the cardinal sin of PRIDE.
