  Frightful \Fright"ful\, a.
     1. Full of fright; affrighted; frightened. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
  
              See how the frightful herds run from the wood. --W.
                                                    Browne.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Full of that which causes fright; exciting alarm;
        impressing terror; shocking; as, a frightful chasm, or
        tempest; a frightful appearance.
  
     Syn: Terrible; dreadful; alarming; fearful; terrific; awful;
          horrid; horrible; shocking.
  
     Usage: Frightful, Dreadful, Awful. These words all
            express fear. In frightful, it is a sudden emotion; in
            dreadful, it is deeper and more prolonged; in awful,
            the fear is mingled with the emotion of awe, which
            subdues us before the presence of some invisible
            power. An accident may be frightful; the approach of
            death is dreadful to most men; the convulsions of the
            earthquake are awful.
            [1913 Webster]
