    Default Deep Hate/hatred.

    Hello! How are you?


    "DEEP HATE/HATRED"


    1.- Can I use the adjective "Deep" to mean I hate someone a lot?

    2.- Secondly, Should I use Hate or Hatred?. Is there any difference?
    I was taking a look at the dictionary and the meaning was the same.


    Thanks in advance!

    If you're using an adjective, such as "deep," then you should use "hatred."

    Example: "He had a deep hatred of opera, and refused to escort his wife to La Boheme."

    "Intense" and "deep-seated" are also often found in combination with "hatred".

    1. I have a deep-seated hatred of sopranos.
    2. I have an intense hatred of the harp.
