English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. cheat

    A contrivance or device may be either good or bad. A cheat is a mean advantage in a bargain; a fraud, any form of covert robbery or injury. Imposture is a deceitful contrivance for securing charity, credit, or consideration. A stratagem or maneuver may be of the good against the bad, as it were a skilful movement of war. A wile is usually but not necessarily evil.

    E'en children followed with endearing wile.

    Goldsmith Deserted Village, l. 184.

    A trick is often low, injurious, and malicious; we say a mean trick; the word is sometimes used playfully with less than its full meaning. A ruse or a blind may be quite innocent and harmless. An artifice is a carefully and delicately prepared contrivance for doing indirectly what one could not well do directly. A device is something studied out for promoting an end, as in a mechanism; the word is used of indirect action, often, but not necessarily directed to an evil, selfish, or injurious end. Finesse is especially subtle contrivance, delicate artifice, whether for good or evil. Compare FRAUD.

    Synonyms:
    art, artifice, blind, contrivance, craft, cunning, device, dodge, finesse, fraud, guile, imposture, invention, machination, maneuver, ruse, stratagem, subterfuge, trick, wile

    Antonyms:
    artlessness, candor, fairness, frankness, guilelessness, honesty, ingenuousness, innocence, openness, simplicity, sincerity, truth

How to use cheat in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    We've had some bad ones, and there's not even a close second to him, he'll lie. He'll cheat. President Donald Trump can't reason with him.

  2. Marcel Proust:

    The bonds that unite another person to ourselves exist only in our mind. Memory as it grows fainter relaxes them, and notwithstanding the illusion by which we would fain be cheated and with which, out of love, friendship, politeness, deference, duty, we cheat other people, we exist alone. Man is the creature that cannot emerge from himself, that knows his fellows only in himself when he asserts the contrary, he is lying.

  3. Thierry Braillard:

    With this technology which has been approved by the UCI and by the Tour de France (organizers), those who will want to cheat will be taking very very big risks, it's a complement to what the UCI has been doing.

  4. Denis Cotterell:

    If you think for a second I would be doing that with someone that is a cheat, then people don't know me, what is the definition of a drug cheat ? Someone who has failed a test ? By that definition, they have got drug cheats on the Australian team.

  5. Pearl Bailey:

    The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one's self. All sin is easy after that.
