mov′ing·ly adv.
Synonyms: moving, stirring, poignant, touching, affecting
These adjectives mean arousing or capable of arousing deep, usually somber emotion. Moving is the least specific: "A ... widow ... has laid her case of destitution before him, in a very moving letter" (Nathaniel Hawthorne).
Something stirring excites strong, turbulent, but not unpleasant feelings: a stirring speech about patriotism. Poignant suggests the evocation of keen, painful emotion: "The happier our new relations seemed, the stronger I felt an undercurrent of poignant sadness" (Vladimir Nabokov).
Touching emphasizes sympathy or tenderness: a touching eulogy. Affecting applies especially to what is heart-rending or bittersweet: We found the photo of the hostages' release to be deeply affecting.
