SARCASM: An illustration

SARCASM:- “A sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt.” More contemporary definitions often emphasize the false, mocking praise and verbal irony of sarcasm rather than its malicious or scornful intent. However, the etymology of the word “sarcasm” clearly indicates that wounding was (at least historically) the primary point. The word comes from the late Latin sarcasmus, derived from the Greek sarkasmos (“a sneer, jest, taunt, mockery”) and sarkazein (“to speak bitterly, sneer”–literally, “to strip off the flesh” or “to bite the lips in rage”). – Sarcasm Society
