What does Fierce Mean?

The adjective fierce allows to qualify one who is well prepared to participate in a battle. By extension, the term is used to describe the person who has experience in competitions or who shows a tendency to prevail in case of conflict.

For example: “The fierce Uruguayan defender was hired by a French team”, “It will not be a simple game for us: the Japanese team is fierce and battling”, “Our political space needs a fierce candidate, capable of withstanding the attacks of the opposition ”.

The use of seasoned is frequent in the field of sports. If we focus on the context of soccer, it is often said that a player is fierce when he constantly fights for the ball (the ball) and is willing to participate in all plays. These seasoned players do not hesitate to risk their physique to help the team, sacrificing themselves when scoring or controlling the rivals and leaving their personal brilliance in the background.

Beyond the individual, in football the qualification of seasoned also applies to teams that have the aforementioned characteristics. A seasoned team may be limited in terms of the technique of its players, but it compensates for this failure with effort and collective sacrifice.

In the field of politics, finally, they say that a leader is seasoned when defends his ideas with commitment and passion. In this way, these politicians often participate in discussions and debates to try to impose their position.

Some of the most common synonyms of the term fierce are “combative, brave, warrior, experienced, skilled and trained.” Since its use can take place in various fields, it is not clinging to the technicalities of any discipline, but rather describes a certain way of facing challenges, a personality trait, something that is imprinted deep inside the person and that exists independently of their work and the situations they must face.

Only seasoned individuals are capable of overcoming certain tests that life subjects them to. Although it does not seem possible to learn to be seasoned, it is true that some misfortunes lead us to become stronger, to discover within ourselves tools that we were not aware of possessing and that allow us to arm ourselves to face what is to come.

Therefore, perhaps some people who do not seem to be brave will be so in the future, after having gone through a very difficult time. Of course, from another point of view we can say that they always have been, but that this courage and determination have awakened in them to help them overcome adversity and, once active, they cannot return to a state of latency.

Errors in language, both in speech and in writing, do not have a defined and predictable structure; on the contrary, they might be related to the exceptions, since we never know when and how they will take place, and it is often difficult to understand the reasons for their existence. In the specific case of the word fierce, there are those who write it with umlaut.

By dieresis we understand the spelling sign that in our language must be placed over the vowel u so that it can be pronounced in the syllables gue and gui, so that they become güe and güi. There are many words that must carry umlauts to denote the need to pronounce the u, such as being “shame, umbrella stand and forge.” It is noteworthy that it is increasingly rare use of this sign, given the widespread detriment in the use of language.
