Word grouping and meanings

Noble, heroic and valiant would be grouped together as they all have a similar meaning. Someone who is noble is a person with honour. Someone heroic  would be brave (a hero!). Someone valiant would also be brave and fearless (like a knight in shining armour).

Wonderful,terrific and super all mean the same thing  - great!!!

Indomitable - someone who is hard to tame or subdue. For example, someone who keeps on protesting despite being told not to.

Now for the bad words......

shameful - something one is ashamed about  (or embarrassed morally)

arrogant - someone who thinks they are better than others would be arrogant.

conspirational,

vicious - nasty, deliberately bad. Someone who intentionally stabs someone with a knife would be a vicious person.

despicable - someone to be despised

greedy - wanting too much. Someone obsessed by money might be said to be greedy.

dirty - not clean. If I don't wash I become dirty.

Hope this helps....

Word groupings and meanings

As far as I'm aware conspirational IS NOT a word in English.

Perhaps you mean 'conspiratorial'?

This would be someoone who 'conspires' (plans) with someone else to do something bad.
