  • Mocking is pretending to be that person in a sarcastic way, and mimicking is copying word for word, I think...

  • Mimicking can also be mocking. Mimicking means you are doing the same as someone else. Mocking means you are being mean about the other person. being derisive. - such as if somebody sneezes and you roll your eyes in order to get laughs from others, you are mocking the sneezer. If somebody sneezes, and you pretend to sneeze the same way they did, then you are mimicking them. If you do it to be mean, you are also mocking them.
