What is the opposite to laudatory when describing an adjective?

For instance, when I say that the word “great” is a laudatory adjective.
What would the opposite to that be in the case of a word such as “evil”?
Thank you.

Answer

The opposite of laudatory in describing an adjective using the word evil as an example would be depreciative; probably more succinct would be pejorative.
