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.

How to use birth in a sentence?

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The women's rights fail and collapse if women wrongly fight for that; otherwise, as a fact, each woman carries a key to every right by birth, as morally, culturally, and religiously prospects. The issue and questions lie not on law and right; it depends on the mentality and conduct of men since neither law nor right can change that, except men themselves. However, follow the line of limits and learn to live as society's values; it is wisdom and success.

  2. Steve Tesich:

    No birth certificate is issued when friendship is born. There is nothing tangible. There is just a feeling that your life is different and that your capacity to love and care has miraculously been enlarged with out any effort on your part. It's like having a tiny apartment and somebody moves in with you. But instead of becoming cramped and crowded, the space expands, and you discover rooms you never knew you had until your friend moved in with you.

  3. Rachel Dolezal:

    But for sure there is some similarity in terms of harmonizing the outer appearance with the inner feeling, in terms of stigmatized identities, some people will forever see me as my birth category and nothing further. And the same with Caitlyn.

  4. Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy:

    Americans are thinking, there are some good members of Congress but we can’t figure out what they are good for. Others are thinking, how did these morons make it through the birth canal.”

  5. Gretchen Livingston:

    Clearly, there is postponement, now, will all the women who've been postponing birth... ultimately catch up on their fertility ? I'm not sure.
