1. Of or pertaining to the air; in the air.

8. Pertaining to the soul; spiritual. Synonyms: aerial, animated, ethereal, fairy-like, frolicsome, gay, joyous, light, lively, sprightly. Aerial and airy both signify of or belonging to the air, but airy describes that which seems as if made of air; we speak of airy shapes where we could not well say aerial; ethereal describes its objects as belonging to the upper air, the pure ether, and so, often, heavenly. Sprightly, spiritlike, refers to light, free, cheerful activity of mind and body. That which is lively or animated may be agreeable or the reverse; as, an animated discussion; a lively company. Antonyms: clumsy, heavy, inert, ponderous, slow.
