Syn: Affiction; sorrow; distress; sadness; trial; grievance.
Usage: Grief, Sorrow, Sadness. Sorrow is the generic
term; grief is sorrow for some definite cause -- one
which commenced, at least, in the past; sadness is
applied to a permanent mood of the mind. Sorrow is
transient in many cases; but the grief of a mother for
the loss of a favorite child too often turns into
habitual sadness. “Grief is sometimes considered as
synonymous with sorrow; and in this case we speak of
the transports of grief. At other times it expresses
more silent, deep, and painful affections, such as are
inspired by domestic calamities, particularly by the
loss of friends and relatives, or by the distress,
either of body or mind, experienced by those whom we
love and value.” --Cogan. See Affliction.
