Sentiment: noun - Personal experience, one's feelings; sensation, physical feeling, awareness gained from vague sensation, the feelings of a person or group on a particular subject; an opinion or point of view, attitude, mental feeling, emotion; thought or view based on emotion; emotion expressed in literature or art, the feeling or meaning intended by a passage; emotional or tender feelings collectively; tending to be ruled by feeling rather than reason; superficial tenderness or sensitivity, exaggerated or indulgent emotion.

'I echo the sentiments of the last speaker in decrying the general deterioration of literacy amongst the professional med of the media.'

'The novel, a romance without any plot or characterisation, was a turgid roll of sentiment with no real emotion and little in the way of theme to recommend it.'
