English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. parade

    The phrase battle array or array of battle is archaic and poetic; we now say in line or order of battle. The parade is for exhibition and oversight, and partial rehearsal of military manual and maneuvers. Array refers to a continuous arrangement of men, so that all may be seen or reviewed at once. This is practically impossible with the vast armies of our day. We say rather the disposition of troops, which expresses their location so as to sustain and support, though unable to see or readily communicate with each other. Compare DRESS.

    Synonyms:
    army, arrangement, array, battle array, collection, disposition, exhibition, line of battle, order, order of battle, show, sight

    If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It's a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you're alone or with friends, it's a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.

  5. Hans Dietmar Schweisgut:

    Let me just say that one concern we share is that if this event is taking place, including with a military parade, the concern is, is this really sending a message of reconciliation? is this going to be an event which is going to be the basis for a more peaceful region and world, or is it going to stir resentments which could go in the other direction?
