What does 'scornful' mean? In this context?
1-derision 2-disdain 3-contempt 4-something else??? i can’t find anything else in the dictionary.
“As a child, one of my sisters was endlessly troubled by bad dreams and she could never be persuaded that they meant nothing. Boylike, of course, i was very scornful of this. on one occasion her screams awoke the whole house and so far as i can remember none of us had any more sleep that night.”
i’m not sure if the brother was making fun of her experience or frightened of her experience? someone help please.
