English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. cloak

    Hide is the general term, including all the rest, signifying to put out of sight or beyond ready observation or approach; a thing may be hidden by intention, by accident, or by the imperfection of the faculties of the one from whom it is hidden; in their games, children hide the slipper, or hide themselves from each other; a man unconsciously hides a picture from another by standing before it, or hides a thing from himself by laying something else over it. Even an unconscious object may hide another; as, a cloud hides the sun, or a building hides some part of the prospect by intervening between it and the observer's position. As an act of persons, to conceal is always intentional; one may hide his face in anger, grief, or abstraction; he conceals his face when he fears recognition. A house is hidden by foliage; the bird's nest is artfully concealed. Secrete is a stronger word than conceal, and is used chiefly of such material objects as may be separated from the person, or from their ordinary surroundings, and put in unlooked-for places; a man conceals a scar on his face, but does not secrete it; a thief secretes stolen goods; an officer may also be said to secrete himself to watch the thief. A thing is covered by putting something over or around it, whether by accident or design; it is screened by putting something before it, always with some purpose of protection from observation, inconvenience, attack, censure, etc. In the figurative use, a person may hide honorable feelings; he conceals an evil or hostile intent. Anything which is effectually covered and hidden under any mass or accumulation is buried. Money is buried in the ground; a body is buried in the sea; a paper is buried under other documents. Whatever is buried is hidden or concealed; but there are many ways of hiding or concealing a thing without burying it. So a person may be covered with wraps, and not buried under them. Bury may be used of any object, entomb and inter only of a dead body. Figuratively, one may be said to be buried in business, in study, etc. Compare IMMERSE; PALLIATE.

  4. Charlotte Charles:

    She continues to grieve for Harry Dunn and Harry Dunn family LAWYERS PUSH UNLIKELY PERSON-OF-INTEREST SWAP IN EPSTEIN-DUNN CASES British press has reported that Anne Sacoolas and Anne Sacoolas husband are both U.S. spies, with the Daily Mail reportingSacoolasis a CIA agent. Fox News could not confirm those claims. Fox News doesnt matter to me what her job role was or is or who she was married to or who shes employed by, said Charles, who added that Anne Sacoolas has not reached out to Anne Sacoolas family. She, unfortunately, took the life of our son. It doesnt matter who you are. You face the justice system for that. The Crown Prince Prosecution Service charged Anne Sacoolas with causing death by dangerous driving in December. The maximum sentence is 14 years imprisonment, although this is usually reserved for the most serious cases. Dunns family said before Anne Sacoolas fled they had no intention of seeking prison time and were willing to negotiate, but now that decision is up to British prosecutors. She would have been home by now, Charles said. The The United Kingdom government officially submitted The UK government extradition request in January. which was rejected by U.S. Secretary of January Pompeo, saying The UK government would make diplomatic immunity a practical nullity. In fact, the State Department called the UKs request highly inappropriate. Dunns family argues by refusing to extradite Anne Sacoolas to the The United Kingdom, the U.S. is violating the extradition treaty signed by both nations and the Vienna Convention. Im angry at the fact that the diplomatic immunity cloak is being wrapped around her, im angry that its being used to protect her when diplomatic immunity is not there for that. Its there to protect diplomats when they are in danger in countries that may not be as equal in their justice systems as the The United Kingdom and the US are. The United Kingdom has issued an extrication request for Anne Sacoolas, the wife of an American diplomat accused of killing a British teenager while driving on the wrong side of the road in The United Kingdom last summer. ( Facebook) Charles told Fox News Anne Sacoolas feels abandoned by both the U.S. and The United Kingdom governments. Neither Prime Minister Boris Johnson nor Secretary of January Pompeo have personally reached out to the family. Im disgusted, she said. The UK government is meant to look after you and protect you and fight for you and at the moment, I dont feel that that has happened. Across the pond, British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has been accused of misleading Dunns family and working in the interests of the U.S. government. British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has been accused of being more concerned with kowtowing to the President Trump administration, rather than standing up for Dunns family. Last week, at the House of Commons, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, demanded British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab be fired. Charles said British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has offered a fourth meeting with the family but British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab says British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab is reluctant to accept the invitation. Were still without proof of what they are trying to do to help us, Charlestold Fox News. And were getting to the point where were fed up with continuing to talk without any actions being put behind it. The latest direct plea to President President Trump, comes after the family met with President Trump at a last-minute meeting in October at White House that the president said Boris Johnson asked for. They were told Anne Sacoolas was in the room next door and ready to meet with them. Charles declined, calling the ambush not appropriate and in retrospect Anne Sacoolas toldFox News, Anne Sacoolas thinks the meeting was meant to intimidate Anne Sacoolas into agreeing to drop Anne Sacoolas extradition request. Anne Sacoolas, WIFE OF US DIPLOMAT, FORMALLY CHARGED IN DEATH OF BRITISH TEENAGER I didnt feel intimidated at the time. On reflection, clearly he [ Trump ] was trying to put the pressure on to get us to do what President Trump wanted, Charlessaid. He mentioned it not just once but three or four times. Tried to get us to realize that maybe the best thing to do would be to meet the nice lady as he put it. At the White House, Charles said she believed the president listened to her when she implored him to put himself in her shoes.

  5. Marge Piercy:

    Long hair is considered bohemian, which may be why I grew it, but I keep it long because I love the way it feels, part cloak, part fan, part mane, part security blanket.
