English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fancy

    An intellectual fancy is a mental image or picture founded upon slight or whimsical association or resemblance; a conceit has less of the picturesque and more of the theoretic than a fancy; a conceit is somewhat aside from the common laws of reasoning, as a fancy is lighter and more airy than the common mode of thought. A conceit or fancy may be wholly unfounded, while a conception always has, or is believed to have, some answering reality. (Compare REASON.) An intellectual fancy or conceit may be pleasing or amusing, but is never worth serious discussion; we speak of a mere fancy, a droll or odd conceit. An emotional or personal fancy is a capricious liking formed with slight reason and no exercise of judgment, and liable to fade as lightly as it was formed. In a broader sense, the fancy signifies the faculty by which fancies or mental images are formed, associated, or combined. Compare synonyms for DREAM; IDEA; IMAGINATION.

    Synonyms:
    belief, caprice, conceit, conception, desire, humor, idea, image, imagination, inclination, liking, mood, predilection, supposition, vagary, whim

    Antonyms:
    actuality, certainty, fact, reality, truth, verity

    Preposition:
    To have a fancy for or take a fancy to a person or thing.

How to use FANCY in a sentence?

  1. James Robertson:

    The reason I picked the Taurus, I remember the old Taurus from the 1980s, they never were this fancy or anything, but like me they have a strong heart from the inside.

  2. Joan Salge Blake:

    There is variety of healthy dietary patterns to follow, whatever tickles your fancy and your palate.

  3. Ben Sheats:

    Part of the foundation of this company is that entertainment can be so much more than just a passive experience, we have these very fancy devices in our pockets that we use every day and just using them as a display screen seems wasteful.

  4. Anna Zafesova:

    He has dozens of young women and men perfectly capable of carrying on his investigative work. Maybe they are less charismatic than he, but they are proof that the Russian opposition is not only virtual and cannot be silenced with the poisoning of its leader. POISONED KREMLIN CRITIC ALEXEI NAVALNY OUT OF COMA AND RESPONSIVE: GERMAN HOSPITAL Navalnys spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh and fellow team member Georgi Alburov front the Tatarstan film, and said they were followed and harassed while shooting by men who blocked their paths with quad bikes or lurked nearby. Some dramatic images along those lines appear in the film.Yarmysh talks about how Tatarstan was supposed to be one of Navalnys stops on his late summer swing through Russian regions ahead of elections. Navalny was lobbying forSmart Voting. He argued that ifhe and people like him couldnt run in elections in Russia, the next best thing wasto simply vote for a candidate who is not from the same party as President Vladimir Putin, United Russia. Navalnyfamously called it the party of crooks and thieves and wantedto chip away at its monopoly on power howeverpossible.He believes Smart Voting can eventually dislodge it from power. GERMANY SUGGESTS HALT TO RUSSIA PIPELINE PROJECT, SEEKS COOPERATION WITH NAVALNY POISONING INVESTIGATION In the documentary from Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan, Navalnys team keeps up his stylistic pace with drone video of what itidentifiesas the palatial homes of the regional president and his family, punctuated withvideoof the vast collection of fancy watches from Patek Phillipe to Breguet worn byleaderRustam Minnikhanov. Even if you dont understand Russian, it is compelling TV, Zafesova said. Navalnys investigations have evolved over the years from merely facts and analysis on his blog to full-scale movies.He invented a whole new way to oppose power, a mix of media and politics which is very important in a censored media environment like Russia and fills the void of free media as well as free debate and an independent judicial system.Navalnys videos are funny, clever, precise and shocking, not just angry denunciations of the wrongdoings of government.

  5. William Blake:

    To me this world is all one continued vision of fancy or imagination, and I feel flattered when I am told so. What is it sets Homer, Virgil and Milton in so high a rank of art? Why is the Bible more entertaining and instructive than any other book? Is it not because they are addressed to the imagination, which is spiritual sensation, and but immediately to the understanding or reason?
