    Ask for a word

    I want a word(adj/noun/verb) which describes an candidate has still held the grudge against the winner, just because he isn't graceful in the defeat.

    So, I want to find a opposite of "graceful" in this context. My dictionary gives "clumsy" as the opposite, clearly not fit in the context. Thanks~

    Re: Ask for a word

    Hello Red,

    You might use the phrases "a bad loser" or "a poor loser".

    In context, you might describe the loser as "resentful"; or "unsportsmanlike".

    Best wishes,
