Derision

Derision

<der-rij-shun>

ridicule; mockery; scorn;

showing contempt with insults and laughter.

The boys wailed with derision when his hat blew off and he had to chase it.

Memory trick:
derision reminds of deride.
deride means to mock.

At work:
Never react with derision to any question the client may ask. There is no such thing as a stupid question.
