讨厌 vs 厌恶
1. Compared to 讨厌, 厌恶 expresses a more intense level of "hate" or "dislike".
2. 讨厌 is a high-frequency word in daily spoken language; 厌恶 is not used as frequently and it appears more in written Chinese.
3. 厌恶 cannot be an adjective, while 讨厌 can be both a verb and an adjective. For example, we cannot replace 讨厌 with 厌恶 in these examples, because 讨厌 is used as an adjective here:
讨厌的问题 [nphr] troublesome issue
他很讨厌。 [phr] He is very annoying.
What is an example of how to use 厌恶 (yànwù) in a sentence?
