Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Cacophonous/Harmonious


Cacophonous: adjective - discordant sound; ill-sounding.

'Rehearsing the junior orchestra for the school play was always a trial for Tony; their inability to play either in tune or in time resulted in a cacophonous output that was enough to drive any music lover to drink.'

Harmonious: adjective - tuneful, sweet-sounding; sounding together in harmony.

'Blending the melodious voice of the soprano with the deep baritone singer provided a harmonious duet that proved a delight on the ears of all those who heard it.'
