English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. discriminating

    Acute, from the Latin, suggests the sharpness of the needle's point; keen, from the Saxon, the sharpness of the cutting edge. Astute, from the Latin, with the original sense of cunning has come to have a meaning that combines the sense of acute or keen with that of sagacious. The astute mind adds to acuteness and keenness an element of cunning or finesse. The astute debater leads his opponents into a snare by getting them to make admissions, or urge arguments, of which he sees a result that they do not perceive. The acute, keen intellect may take no special advantage of these qualities; the astute mind has always a point to make for itself, and seldom fails to make it. A knowing look, air, etc., in general indicates practical knowledge with a touch of shrewdness, and perhaps of cunning; in regard to some special matter, it indicates the possession of reserved knowledge which the person could impart if he chose. Knowing has often a slightly invidious sense. We speak of a knowing rascal, meaning cunning or shrewd within a narrow range, but of a knowing horse or dog, in the sense of sagacious, implying that he knows more than could be expected of such an animal. A knowing child has more knowledge than would be looked for at his years, perhaps more than is quite desirable, while to speak of a child as intelligent is altogether complimentary.

How to use discriminating in a sentence?

  1. John Roberts:

    The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.

  2. Ed Asner:

    ... After I stumbled through that disaster, I figured the damage was done, so I might as well continue the performance. I do n’t lead cavalry charges down Pennsylvania Avenue, but I ’ll make comments. And with the president we’ve got now, how can you not comment on this evil ? It’s an unbelievable aberration. And it’s not because of him, it’s what he represents that enormous core of self-seeking, discriminating, angry, racist people in the United States.

  3. Paul Begala:

    If the Republicans want to claim they're new, they're going to need some new ideas, privatizing Social Security is not a new idea. Voucherizing Medicare is not a new idea. Cutting taxes for the rich is not a new idea. Discriminating against our LGBT sisters and brothers is not a new idea. In fact, I can't think of a single economic idea from the Republicans that Herbert Hoover wasn't in favor of in 1932.

  4. Selahattin Demirtas:

    He is already discriminating by saying "What do you lack?" You, We. He calls us "you", the ones that are not Turks. Actually we all are people living in our motherlands. How can you call natives of this land as "you", with which identity? .. Thank God we have everything and we expect nothing from you(Tayyip Erdogan), we have even more than you, not anything less. (On the quote of State President Tayyip Erdogan "What Kurdish problem, what do you lack?")

  5. Marco Rubio:

    I'm tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like this President's done, always pitting people against each other. Always. Look at today: He gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims.
