Carping is keeping on criticizing someone in a very irritating manner. Finding fault with something to the point of annoyance is also carping. 'He has a carping tongue.' This means, he never stops complaining about someone or something and goes on annoying others. None can be happy in the company of carping persons. Carping persons can never have a pleasant time with others. Carping, in other words, is nagging.

  • The carping of a teacher, a coach, or a research guide can be very discouraging to their students, or to those who take guidance from them, and can make them frustrated and depressed.
  • Carping can never be regarded as being good in anyway, either to the carping person or to the victims. In fact, carping can destroy the initiative of the victims of carping.
