Hi, Fellas! It’s good to see you again this evening. How’s your day?
In this session we are going to discuss “cacophony.” Is there anyone have an idea of the meaning of this word?
“Ex. Shouting wife.. Lol.” – @cris_zysier
Oxford Dictionary states that “cacophony” is an unpleasant/harsh sound. In a simpler way hand you can also define it as a noise. It is said that “cacophony” was derived from a Greek word called “kakophonia” or “kakophonos.” Kakophonos itself is the combination of “kakos,” which means “bad,” and “phone” (sound).
There are some example of cacophonies in our daily life, such as the sound of vehicles on the road followed by the shouting horns, chatter, or a mixed sound of music. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, there are some related vocabulary to “cacophony.” They are “blast,” “uproar,” “clatter,” etc.
Lastly, here are some example of sentences that contain “cacophony”
- “The room is full of people. I think I will stay here since their voices are cacophonies to me.”
- “The increasing number of personal vehicles is the main cause of cacophony on the road.”
