See Shagreen.] Vexation; mortification. I must own that I felt rather vexation and chagrin than hope and satisfaction. --Richard Porson. Hear me, and touch Belinda with chagrin. --Pope. Syn: Vexation; mortification; peevishness; fretfulness; disgust; disquiet. Usage: Chagrin, Vexation, Mortification. These words agree in the general sense of pain produced by untoward circumstances. Vexation is a feeling of disquietude or irritating uneasiness from numerous causes, such as losses, disappointments, etc. Mortification is a stronger word, and denotes that keen sense of pain which results from wounded pride or humiliating occurrences. Chagrin is literally the cutting pain produced by the friction of Shagreen leather; in its figurative sense, it varies in meaning, denoting in its lower degrees simply a state of vexation, and its higher degrees the keenest sense of mortification. ``Vexation arises chiefly from our wishes and views being crossed: mortification, from our self-importance being hurt; chagrin, from a mixture of the two.' --Crabb.
