    Hello.
    How would you say this word in all dialects (gloat?)

    Meaning (to show that you are happy and proud at your own success or at someone else’s failure?)

    For example.

    Gloat over: he was there to gloat over their defeat

    Thanks

    You have defined 'gloat' in a way that makes it seem quite a lot meaner than it usually is in daily usage...
