Word meaning and usage
Conan O'Brian said on The Tonight Show, "Don't be cynical. I hate cynism." Can you help explain what cynical means and how would you describe someone being cynical? Thanks.
Re: Word meaning and usage
A cynical person doesn't respect the norms and the rules. Such a person often refers to the moral values in an ironic way.
