English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. character

    Character is what one is; reputation, what he is thought to be; his record is the total of his known action or inaction. As a rule, a man's record will substantially express his character; his reputation may be higher or lower than his character or record will justify. Repute is a somewhat formal word, with the same general sense as reputation. One's nature includes all his original endowments or propensities; character includes both natural and acquired traits. We speak of one's physical constitution as strong or weak, etc., and figuratively, always with the adjective, of his mental or moral constitution. Compare CHARACTERISTIC.

    Synonyms:
    constitution, disposition, genius, nature, personality, record, reputation, spirit, temper, temperament

    Preposition:
    The witness has a character for veracity; his character is above suspicion; the character of the applicant.

How to use character in a sentence?

  1. Harper Lee:

    In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called' Go Set a Watchman,' it features the character known as Scout as an adult woman, and I thought it a pretty decent effort.

  5. Prashant Agarwal:

    We are not defined by our characteristics, like our gender or our age or other physical attributes. What gives us our identity is our character, that is, our behavior and our attitude. How we think, how we behave with other people, what opinions we have, our outlook on life, these parameters make up our character. And our character defines the individual whom the world is compelled either to respect or to contempt. Our character shapes not only the world’s opinion of us but also our destiny. If we have a positive attitude, we are sure to succeed. That is entirely in your control. Take charge of your personality, build yourself up, and stand out from the crowd!
