English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. assertion

    Assurance may have the good sense of a high, sustained confidence and trust; as, the saint's assurance of heaven. Confidence is founded upon reasons; assurance is largely a matter of feeling. In the bad sense, assurance is a vicious courage, with belief of one's ability to outwit or defy others; the hardened criminal is remarkable for habitual assurance. For the calm conviction of one's own rectitude and ability, self-confidence is a better word than assurance; self-reliance expresses confidence in one's own resources, independently of others' aid. In the bad sense assurance is less gross than impudence, which is (according to its etymology) a shameless boldness. Assurance is in act or manner; impudence may be in speech. Effrontery is impudence defiantly displayed. Compare FAITH; PRIDE.

    Synonyms:
    arrogance, assumption, assurance, boldness, confidence, effrontery, impudence, presumption, self-assertion, self-confidence, self-reliance, trust

    Antonyms:
    bashfulness, confusion, consternation, dismay, distrust, doubt, doubt, hesitancy, misgiving, shyness, timidity

How to use assertion in a sentence?

  4. Sir Arthur Eddington, The Philosophy of Physical Science:

    For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal. It does not follow that every item which we confidently accept as physical knowledge has actually been certified by the Court; our confidence is that it would be certified by the Court if it were submitted. But it does follow that every item of physical knowledge is of a form which might be submitted to the Court. It must be such that we can specify (although it may be impracticable to carry out) an observational procedure which would decide whether it is true or not. Clearly a statement cannot be tested by observation unless it is an assertion about the results of observation. Every item of physical knowledge must therefore be an assertion of what has been or would be the result of carrying out a specified observational procedure.

  5. Alphonso David:

    Newsday quoted Terrence Connors as saying in an e-mail. Alphonso David, Alphonso David, said in an emailed statement that New York state had launched three investigations into the Buffalo residents allegations against William Hoyt, a former regional president of the Empire State Development Corp. Any assertion to the contrary is patently and demonstrably false, and as such, we expect this matter to be summarily dismissed.
