Synonyms Contemptible, Despicable, Paltry, Pitiful, abject, base, worthless, sorry, reduced. Contemptible is unworthy of notice, worth scorn, for littleness or meanness; it is typically not too strong as despicable, which always requires the idea of great baseness: as, a contemptible trick; despicable treachery. Paltry and pitiful tend to be put on things that from their particular insignificance hardly deserve to-be considered anyway: as, a paltry excuse; a sum of money pitifully little. In pitiful, the shame generally seems to connect with the only foolish adequate to provide, etc., the pitiful tiling. Pitiful is generally put on persons. What's paltry is of no effect; what's pitiful is absurdly unequal to what it ought to be. See pitiful.
