adjective ardent, earnest, enthusiastic, fervid, passionate, warm, excited, emotional, intense, flaming, eager, animated, fiery, ecstatic, devout, heartfelt, impassioned, zealous, vehement, perfervid (literary) a fervent admirer of her work
cold, cool, detached, apathetic, frigid, dispassionate, impassive, unfeeling, unimpassioned
Usage: Care should be taken when using fervid as an alternative to fervent. Although both come from the same root and share the meaning `intense, ardent', the first has largely positive connotations, and is associated with hopes, wishes, and beliefs or admirers, supporters, and fans. The second, apart from being used less often than the first, is chiefly negative: in the fervid politics of New York city. A fervent kiss from an admirer would probably be welcome; a fervid one would not.
