English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. birth

    Kind is broader than kin, denoting the most general relationship, as of the whole human species in mankind, humankind, etc.; kin and kindred denote direct relationship that can be traced through either blood or marriage, preferably the former; either of these words may signify collectively all persons of the same blood or members of the same family, relatives or relations. Affinity is relationship by marriage, consanguinity is relationship by blood. There are no true antonyms of kin or kindred, except those made by negatives, since strangers, aliens, foreigners, and foes may still be kin or kindred.

How to use birth in a sentence?

  1. Marcela Rodriguez-Farrelly:

    This is an invisible situation. If you don't have a birth certificate, you can't access your rights.

  2. Pablito Felix Ramirez:

    I was born in the Dominican Republic and my mom died when I was 7. I never had a birth certificate.

  3. Ruth Feldman:

    Maternal deprivation during the critical post-birth period carries detrimental long term effects for all mammalian young, provision of the mother’s physical proximity can counter some of the adverse side effects of premature birth.

  4. Montoya Major:

    My initial thought, when I found out I was pregnant, was, What am I going to do with a child ? i was living in Florida, away from all my family and friends. Having kids was never a thought of mine. I wanted to pursue my degree and establish a career. MOM SHOCKED TO FIND POLICE AT HOUSE PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH HER SONS I knew that now, my entire thought process would have to be re-evaluated, and I needed to figure out what to do next, she continued. Though the director of Majors academic program told her it would be nearly impossible to complete her studies with two babies on the way, she remained laser-focused on her studies, attending class every single day literally until the day I gave birth, as per Facebook. In May 2018, little Makenna and Makinlee were born early via C-section. One week later, Montoya Major was back in the classroom. The proud mom told Fox News that she never would have been able to weather the challenging season of life without the support of family and friends, especially her dad. Her father raised her as a widow, and always championed the importance of education as his daughter was the first in their family to attend college. Throughout this entire journey my father encouraged me the most although he was not physically there. My father and I are very close and have always been inseparable after my mother passed when I was young, Montoya Major told Fox News. Whenever I had an episode of wanting to quit school he always encouraged me that it would be worth it in the end. Nevertheless, the collegian would later reflect on that journey as the hardest year of my life balancing her studies and clinical rotations with caring for two newborns on her own.

  5. Gretchen Livingston:

    Our own survey data shows that people stated they were postponing birth until the economy picked up again, whenever there's an economic downturn, it's pretty normal for there to also be a downturn in fertility.
