English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fellow

    An associate as used officially implies a chief, leader, or principal, to whom the associate is not fully equal in rank. Associate is popularly used of mere friendly relations, but oftener implies some work, enterprise, or pursuit in which the associated persons unite. We rarely speak of associates in crime or wrong, using confederates or accomplices instead. Companion gives itself with equal readiness to the good or evil sense, as also does comrade. One may be a companion in travel who would not readily become an associate at home. A lady advertises for a companion; she would not advertise for an associate. Peer implies equality rather than companionship; as, a jury of his peers. Comrade expresses more fellowship and good feeling than companion. Fellow has almost gone out of use in this connection, except in an inferior or patronizing sense. Consort is a word of equality and dignity, as applied especially to the marriage relation. Compare ACCESSORY; ACQUAINTANCE; FRIENDSHIP.

    Synonyms:
    accomplice, ally, associate, chum, coadjutor, colleague, companion, comrade, confederate, consort, friend, helpmate, mate, partner, peer

    Antonyms:
    antagonist, enemy, foe, hinderer, opponent, opposer, rival, stranger

    Preposition:
    These were the associates of the leader in the enterprise.
