English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. aptitude

    Adroitness (French à, to, and droit, right) and dexterity (Latin dexter, right, right-hand) might each be rendered "right-handedness;" but adroitness carries more of the idea of eluding, parrying, or checking some hostile movement, or taking advantage of another in controversy; dexterity conveys the idea of doing, accomplishing something readily and well, without reference to any action of others. We speak of adroitness in fencing, boxing, or debate; of dexterity in horsemanship, in the use of tools, weapons, etc. Aptitude (Latin aptus, fit, fitted) is a natural readiness, which by practise may be developed into dexterity. Skill is more exact to line, rule, and method than dexterity. Dexterity can not be communicated, and, oftentimes can not even be explained by its possessor; skill to a very great extent can be imparted; "skilled workmen" in various trades are numbered by thousands. Compare ADDRESS; CLEVER; POWER; SKILFUL.

    Synonyms:
    adroitness, cleverness, dexterity, expertness, readiness, skill

    Preposition:
    Dexterity of hand, of movement, of management; with the pen; in action, in manipulating men; at cards.
