PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

audācia f (genitive audāciae); first declension

  1. The state or quality of being bold; boldness.
  2. Daring, intrepidity; courage, valor, confidence; a daring or courageous action.
    Synonyms: animōsitās, cōnfīdentia, virtūs
  3. Daring, audacity, impetuosity, recklessness, rashness, presumption, insolence; a reckless or audacious action.
    Synonym: temeritās

Usage notesEdit

Audācia only properly renders a sense of courage, valor or confidence in connection to risk-taking; when used in these senses there is a quality of reckless action implied. To render "courage" in the sense of an innate human quality, animōsitās is better. To render confidence in a similar sense, use cōnfīdentia.
