evil adjective profoundly immoral and wicked: no man is so evil to be beyond redemption
immoral adjective not conforming to accepted social standards or morality
wicked adjective evil or morally wrong
I’ve been told that I’m evil and I have an evil laughter at the language school. Apparently asking “Have you come by motorbike?” when some girl’s hair looks awful doesn’t conform to accepted social standards or morality; nor does laughing at the story of a work mate who needs to buy a new fridge after helping it defrost by scraping the ice layer with a knife or at the sight of someone with almost forty-five notebooks with homework to correct.
Although I might be immoral — taking in account that social standards are rarely a quality guarantee — I’m not wicked, since I’m never wrong in any way, let alone morally.
P. S.: This Oxford guys should know better than define evil as wicked and wicked as evil. Did nobody warn them about circular references?
