I am writing an essay for the book To Kill A Mockingbird and i feel this is an appropriate word to use for it. I have a general idea what the word means but I need to know one thing
whether to say.
racial pregidous or just pregidous?
noun, verb, -diced, -dic·ing.
–noun 1. an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.
any preconceived opinion or feeling, either favorable or unfavorable.
unreasonable feelings, opinions, or attitudes, esp. of a hostile nature, regarding a racial, religious, or national group.
such attitudes considered collectively: The war against prejudice is never-ending.
damage or injury; detriment: a law that operated to the prejudice of the majority.
–verb (used with object) 6. to affect with a prejudice, either favorable or unfavorable: His honesty and sincerity prejudiced us in his favor.
—Synonyms 2. preconception, partiality, predilection, predisposition. See bias. 6. bias, influence.
In "To Kill a Mockingbird," racial prejudice is involved in the case against Tom Robinson, but prejudice is also involved in people's attitudes toward Boo Radley, which had nothing to do with race.Source(s): Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1) Based on the Random House Unabridged Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2006.
That word doesn't exist in English. I think you mean "prejudice". If the essay is for school I'd pay a lot of attention to the spelling!!
1 : injury or damage resulting from some judgment or action of another in disregard of one's rights; especially : detriment to one's legal rights or claims
2 a (1) : preconceived judgment or opinion (2) : an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge b : an instance of such judgment or opinion c : an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics
