English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. auxiliary

    An auxiliary is a person or thing that helps in a subordinate capacity. Allies unite as equals; auxiliaries are, at least technically, inferiors or subordinates. Yet the auxiliary is more than a mere assistant. The word is oftenest found in the plural, and in the military sense; auxiliaries are troops of one nation uniting with the armies, and acting under the orders, of another. Mercenaries serve only for pay; auxiliaries often for reasons of state, policy, or patriotism as well. Compare ACCESSORY; APPENDAGE.

    Synonyms:
    accessory, aid, ally, assistant, coadjutor, confederate, helper, mercenary, promoter, subordinate

    Antonyms:
    antagonist, hinderer, opponent, opposer

    Preposition:
    The auxiliaries of the Romans; an auxiliary in a good cause; an auxiliary to learning.
