English → English (gcide) Definition: Adulation Adulation \Ad`u*la"tion\, n. [F. adulation, fr. L. adulatio, fr. adulari, adulatum, to flatter.] Servile flattery; praise in excess, or beyond what is merited. [1913 Webster] Think'st thou the fiery fever will go out With titles blown from adulation? --Shak. [1913 Webster] Syn: Sycophancy; cringing; fawning; obsequiousness; blandishment. Usage: Adulation, Flattery, Compliment. Men deal in compliments from a desire to please; they use flattery either from undue admiration, or a wish to gratify vanity; they practice adulation from sordid motives, and with a mingled spirit of falsehood and hypocrisy. Compliment may be a sincere expression of due respect and esteem, or it may be unmeaning; flattery is apt to become gross; adulation is always servile, and usually fulsome. [1913 Webster]
