Usage: Chagrin, Vexation, Mortification. These words
agree in the general sense of pain produced by
untoward circumstances. Vexation is a feeling of
disquietude or irritating uneasiness from numerous
causes, such as losses, disappointments, etc.

keen sense of pain which results from wounded pride or
humiliating occurrences. Chagrin is literally the

of mortification. ``Vexation arises chiefly from our
wishes and views being crossed: mortification, from
our self-importance being hurt; chagrin, from a
mixture of the two.'' --Crabb.
