English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. acknowledgment

    All these words express one's answer to a charge of wrong or error that is or might be made. Apology has undergone a remarkable change from its old sense of a valiant defense — as in Justin Martyr's Apologies for the Christian faith — to its present meaning of humble confession and concession. He who offers an apology admits himself, at least technically and seemingly, in the wrong. An apology is for what one has done or left undone; an excuse may be for what one proposes to do or leave undone as well; as, one sends beforehand his excuse for not accepting an invitation; if he should fail either to be present or to excuse himself, an apology would be in order. An excuse for a fault is an attempt at partial justification; as, one alleges haste as an excuse for carelessness. Confession is a full acknowledgment of wrong, generally of a grave wrong, with or without apology or excuse. Plea ranges in sense from a prayer for favor or pardon to an attempt at full vindication. Defense, exculpation, justification, and vindication are more properly antonyms than synonyms of apology in its modern sense, and should be so given, but for their connection with its historic usage. Compare CONFESS; DEFENSE.

    Synonyms:
    apology, confession, defense, exculpation, excuse, justification, plea, vindication

    Antonyms:
    accusation, censure, charge, complaint, condemnation, imputation, injury, insult, offense, wrong

    Preposition:
    An apology to the guest for the oversight would be fitting.

How to use acknowledgment in a sentence?

  1. John Burris:

    Money cannot be the sole object for him because he makes a lot. I think he wants acknowledgment of what was wrong with what took place, and it's important from his point of view that when something like this happens, you stand up for yourself, you don't take the easy way out.

  4. Andrea Syrtash:

    Lack of acknowledgement for your partner's contributions or a lack of attention on him or her will leave partners feeling disconnected, research shows that you need five positive interactions to negate just one negative interaction.

  5. Kenny Irby:

    I think The Seattle Times's disgraceful propaganda and terribly misrepresentative of documentary journalism in times like this, when truth-telling and accountability is so important, there is no attribution. There is no acknowledgment of the montage, and it's terribly misleading.
