    dreaded: also dread (literary)→[only before noun] making you feel afraid or anxious - often used humorously 例句: She couldn't put off the dreaded moment forever.

    dreadful: 1 extremely unpleasant [= terrible] 2 [only before noun] used to emphasize how bad something or someone is [= terrible]

    dread用在人上,dreadful 用在事物上
