English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. boundary

    The boundary was originally the landmark, that which marked off one piece of territory from another. The bound is the limit, marked or unmarked. Now, however, the difference between the two words has come to be simply one of usage. As regards territory, we speak of the boundaries of a nation or of an estate; the bounds of a college, a ball-ground, etc. Bounds may be used for all within the limits, boundary for the limiting line only. Boundary looks to that which is without; bound only to that which is within. Hence we speak of the bounds, not the boundaries, of a subject, of the universe, etc.; we say the students were forbidden to go beyond the bounds. A barrier is something that bars ingress or egress. A barrier may be a boundary, as was the Great Wall of China. Bourn, or bourne, is a poetical expression for bound or boundary. A border is a strip of land along the boundary. Edge is a sharp terminal line, as where river or ocean meets the land. Limit is now used almost wholly in the figurative sense; as, the limit of discussion, of time, of jurisdiction. Line is a military term; as, within the lines, or through the lines, of an army. Compare BARRIER; END.

    Synonyms:
    barrier, border, bound, bourn, bourne, confines, edge, enclosure, frontier, landmark, limit, line, marches, marge, margin, term, termination, verge

    Antonyms:
    center, citadel, estate, inside, interior, land, region, territory

    Preposition:
    The boundaries of an estate; the boundary between neighboring territories.

  4. Don Gurnett:

    In a historical sense, the old idea that the solar wind will just be gradually whittled away as you go further into interstellar space is simply not true, we show with Voyager 2 -- and previously with Voyager 1 -- that there's a distinct boundary out there. It's just astonishing how fluids, including plasmas, form boundaries.

  5. Brad Tucker:

    The reason this find is important is we don't actually know how our solar system was formed, there really is a mystery out there, we have a poor understanding of it because we keep finding new objects like this, and if we don't understand how our solar system formed, we don't know the ingredients that are required to make an earth. And the ultimate question -- what is the boundary of our solar system ?
