English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. antique

    Antique refers to an ancient, antiquated to a discarded style. Antique is that which is either ancient in fact or ancient in style. The reference is to the style rather than to the age. We can speak of the antique architecture of a church just built. The difference between antiquated and antique is not in the age, for a Puritan style may be scorned as antiquated, while a Roman or Renaissance style may be prized as antique. The antiquated is not so much out of date as out of vogue. Old-fashioned may be used approvingly or contemptuously. In the latter case it becomes a synonym for antiquated; in the good sense it approaches the meaning of antique, but indicates less duration. We call a wide New England fireplace old-fashioned; a coin of the Cæsars, antique. Quaint combines the idea of age with a pleasing oddity; as, a quaint gambrel-roofed house. Antiquated is sometimes used of persons in a sense akin to superannuated. The antiquated person is out of style and out of sympathy with the present generation by reason of age; the superannuated person is incapacitated for present activities by reason of age. Compare OLD.

How to use antique in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    l'un des mythes les plus anciens et bien acceptées, ce qui est le plus grand ennemi de la vérité, à mon avis, est que l'on peut tout simplement pas maintenir la meilleure qualité de vie sans consommer dangereux, toxiques, et des substances appauvrissant. Ce mythe a été persistant, mais irréaliste. Aujourd'hui, les scientifiques novateurs et brillants disciples de la chimie verte défient ce mythe antique de compromis et «quid pro quo» - en concevant apprpriately leurs réactions chimiques, et la sélection des alternatives non-dangereuses à réactifs sinon toxiques. que c'est la façon de se rendre! nous devons penser à l'environnement, à conserver notre belle terre mère fraîche et propre - à tout moment.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often think of Shelley's famous insightful sonnet "Ozymandias" that brilliantly depicts the inevitable fall of all foolishly arrogant leaders and their huge empires built in pretensions to their self-proclaimed greatness. Nature and Time always prevail and overtake ultimately, when nothing remains of those great empires or the arrogant leaders.....and only the lone and level sands stretch far away. Vanity, false pride and arrogance never win, in my view. Humility is the true key success. Here is that famous sonnet "Ozymandias" by Percy Shelley, written in January 1818, nearly 200 years ago. "I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed: And on the pedestal these words appear: 'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!' Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.

  3. Scott Defrin:

    They've basically ruined the collective antique trade, is this really something that will stop poor African people from killing elephants?

  4. Sandeep Khandelwal:

    Simplicity is the end, and not the beginning, of design, we developed clean and uncluttered interiors, weaving in ancient metal jaalis screens, antique brass embossing, block printed fabrics and hand-picked artifacts.

  5. Gavin Newsom:

    Democracy is not a football. You don't throw it around, it's more like a, I don't know, antique vase. You can drop it and smash it in a million different pieces.
