beautiful (byʹtə-fəl) adjective

1. Having qualities that delight the senses, especially the sense of sight.

2. Exciting intellectual or emotional admiration.

beauʹtifully adverb

beauʹtifulness noun

Synonyms: beautiful, lovely, pretty, handsome, comely, fair. All these adjectives apply to what excites aesthetic admiration. Beautiful, the most comprehensive, applies to what stirs a heightened response both of the senses (a beautiful child; beautiful country; a beautiful painting) and of the mind on its highest level (a persuasive and beautiful theory; a beautiful mathematical proof). Lovely applies to what inspires emotion rather than intellectual appreciation: "They were lovely, your eyes, but you didn't know where to look" (George Seferis). "Every man feels instinctively that all the beautiful sentiments in the world weigh less than a single lovely action" (James Russell Lowell). What is pretty is beautiful but in a delicate or graceful way; the word rarely applies to what is imposing: a pretty face; a pretty song; a pretty room. Handsome stresses visual appeal by reason of conformity to ideals of form and proportion: a very large, handsome paneled library. "She is very pretty, but not so extraordinarily handsome" (Thackeray). Comely is usually restricted to wholesome physical attractiveness: "Mrs. Hurd is a large woman with a big, comely, simple face" (Ernest Hemingway). Fair in this context emphasizes visual appeal deriving from freshness or purity: "In the highlands, in the country places,/Where the old plain men have rosy faces,/And the young fair maidens/Quiet eyes" (Robert Louis Stevenson).
