- (transitive) To cause someone to feel pain or sorrow to; to afflict
- 1848, Edgar Allan Poe, Eureka:
- Right is positive; wrong is negative—is merely the negation of right; as cold is the negation of heat—darkness of light. That a thing may be wrong, it is necessary that there be some other thing in relation to which it is wrong—some condition which it fails to satisfy; some law which it violates; some being whom it aggrieves.
- (intransitive, obsolete) To grieve; to lament.
Now commonly used in the passive, to be aggrieved.
to give pain or sorrow to, to afflict, to oppress
to grieve, to lament
