English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. clique

    A class is a number or body of persons or objects having common pursuits, purposes, attributes, or characteristics. A caste is hereditary; a class may be independent of lineage or descent; membership in a caste is supposed to be for life; membership in a class may be very transient; a religious and ceremonial sacredness attaches to the caste, as not to the class. The rich and the poor form separate classes; yet individuals are constantly passing from each to the other; the classes in a college remain the same, but their membership changes every year. We speak of rank among hereditary nobility or military officers; of various orders of the priesthood; by accommodation, we may refer in a general way to the higher ranks, the lower orders of any society. Grade implies some regular scale of valuation, and some inherent qualities for which a person or thing is placed higher or lower in the scale; as, the coarser and finer grades of wool; a man of an inferior grade. A coterie is a small company of persons of similar tastes, who meet frequently in an informal way, rather for social enjoyment than for any serious purpose. Clique has always an unfavorable meaning. A clique is always fractional, implying some greater gathering of which it is a part; the association breaks up into cliques. Persons unite in a coterie through simple liking for one another; they withdraw into a clique largely through aversion to outsiders. A set, while exclusive, is more extensive than a clique, and chiefly of persons who are united by common social station, etc. Circle is similar in meaning to set, but of wider application; we speak of scientific and religious as well as of social circles.

    Synonyms:
    association, caste, circle, clan, class, club, company, coterie, grade, order, rank, set

How to use clique in a sentence?

  1. Norbu Dondrup:

    The Dalai Lama attacking our human rights totally has ulterior motives. He tramples on human rights, and has no right, no qualifications, and is unworthy of talking about human rights, as for some countries slamming our human rights, they either don't understand or believe the Dalai clique's rumors and bewitchments.

  2. Christine Simmons:

    Tolers lawyer Dawn Collins told The Associated Press, referring to Tolers postgame comments. Coaches speak to their players to get them fired up, many coaches use harsher language and far more controversial language. If the term is not OK, its not OK for everyone. But Toler said initially Eric Holoman had publicly dismissed accounts Eric Holoman or Sparks players were offended by her language and that only later when the decision came under scrutiny that she was let go because of the outburst. It is unclear who within the Sparks organization Toler registered her complaints with about the alleged Simmons-Holoman relationship. However, Toler said in the suit that even after Christine Simmons left the organization in 2018 Christine Simmons had influence on decisions the team would make because of Christine Simmons personal relationship with Eric Holoman. Toler said Christine Simmons was looking into trading Parker, but because Christine Simmons and Parker were close Eric Holoman wouldnt let Christine Simmons make a deal. I wasnt part of the clique, Toler told the AP. Every day people would have no idea what I went through here working for the Sparks after they were acquired by this ownership.

  3. Vladimir Putin:

    It appears that Allah decided to punish the ruling clique of Turkey by depriving them of wisdom and judgment.

  4. Jay Lanham:

    Last year, we saw the gangs, especially MS-13, laying low. We arrested a lot of the program and clique leaders so their leadership was lacking.

  5. Kathleen Turner:

    I’ll be quite honest, which is my won't: I didn’t feel very welcomed by the cast. I remember I was wearing this difficult sequined gown — and my high heels were absolutely killing me. I found it odd that none of the actors thought to offer me a seat. Finally, it was one of the older crew members that said, ‘Get Miss Turner a chair.’ The‘Friends’actors were such a clique — but I don’t think my experience with them was unique. I think it was simply that they were such a tight little group that nobody from the outside mattered.
