English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. flying

    Transient and transitory are both derived from the same original source (Latin trans, over, and eo, go), denoting that which quickly passes or is passing away, but there is between them a fine shade of difference. A thing is transient which in fact is not lasting; a thing is transitory which by its very nature must soon pass away; a thing is temporary (Latin tempus, time) which is intended to last or be made use of but a little while; as, a transient joy; this transitory life; a temporary chairman. Ephemeral (Greek epi, on, and hemera, day) literally lasting but for a day, often marks more strongly than transient exceeding brevity of duration; it agrees with transitory in denoting that its object is destined to pass away, but is stronger, as denoting not only its certain but its speedy extinction; thus that which is ephemeral is looked upon as at once slight and perishable, and the word carries often a suggestion of contempt; man's life is transitory, a butterfly's existence is ephemeral; with no solid qualities or worthy achievements a pretender may sometimes gain an ephemeral popularity. That which is fleeting is viewed as in the act of passing swiftly by, and that which is fugitive (Latin fugio, flee) as eluding attempts to detain it; that which is evanescent (Latin evanesco, from e, out, and vanus, empty, vain) as in the act of vanishing even while we gaze, as the hues of the sunset.

    Synonyms:
    brief, ephemeral, evanescent, fleeting, flitting, fugitive, momentary, passing, short, temporary, transient, transitory

    Antonyms:
    abiding, enduring, eternal, everlasting, immortal, imperishable, lasting, permanent, perpetual, persistent, undying, unfading

How to use Flying in a sentence?

  1. Monica Hughes:

    When the storm hit… the pressure dropped until your ears popped. The air got very thick, it was difficult to breathe, the roof came off in one big sheet and then things just were flying, smashing into the doors and the walls.

  2. Jeremy Atkins:

    That’s what I was hoping to see, they don’t roost over here every night, but when they do, they pitch into that cornfield, hang out a while, and then cross the road later in the morning. I bet they’ll be flying up in the next 10 minutes. We can kill a tom in here tomorrow, but we have to sneak in super early.

  3. Jan Ting:

    A natural disaster or flood of bullets flying around your neighborhood doesn’t meet the standard, if the government wanted to deter illegal immigration, they would alter the cost-benefit analysis. Instead, they are looking for ways to help them stay.

  4. Grant Shapps:

    At the moment it is only giving us three options of flying Qatar, ANA or Singapore Airlines, every day it is making it more difficult to get home. The flights back are anywhere from like 4,000 pounds ($5,487).

  5. The King:

    For me the most important thing is that I have a hobby for which I need to concentrate completely, you have an aircraft, passengers and crew. You have responsibility for them. You can't take your problems from the ground into the skies. You can completely disengage and concentrate on something else. That, for me, is the most relaxing part of flying.
