V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: loved very much

Synonyms: loved, adored, esteemed, dear, treasured, precious

Antonyms: unloved, disliked

Tips: Beloved is one of several words with the prefix be-, which is an enhancer of the word's root. Befitting, befuddled, and bemused are three other such words. These words all essentially mean their root word, but the root word usually serves as a past tense verb, and adding the prefix "be-" creates the adjective. Someone who is beloved (adj.) is actually "loved," "liked," or "greatly appreciated and admired (p.t. verbs) by others."

Usage Examples:

The beloved actor was loved by everyone who had the good fortune of meeting him. (loved very much)

My much beloved grandmother touched many people in her life. (dear, loved)

At his funeral, leaders from all around the world came to pay tribute to our beloved President. (dear, admired)

It was so sad to hear that her beloved husband died. (dear, precious)
