  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]
