GRE Practice - Synonyms and Word Groups - Set 11

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 sixth sin GLUTTONY.

Below, you will be given clues to words that are synonyms, antonyms or in some obvious way connected to the word GLUTTONY.
