English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. coin

    Money is the authorized medium of exchange; coined money is called coin or specie. What are termed in England bank-notes are in the United States commonly called bills; as, a five-dollar bill. The notes of responsible men are readily transferable in commercial circles, but they are not money; as, the stock was sold for $500 in money and the balance in merchantable paper. Cash is specie or money in hand, or paid in hand; as, the cash account; the cash price. In the legal sense, property is not money, and money is not property; for property is that which has inherent value, while money, as such, has but representative value, and may or may not have intrinsic value. Bullion is either gold or silver uncoined, or the coined metal considered without reference to its coinage, but simply as merchandise, when its value as bullion may be very different from its value as money. The word capital is used chiefly of accumulated property or money invested in productive enterprises or available for such investment.

  1. Eric Trump:

    We've done a really good job welcoming everyone, all sorts of diversity, but the only place where there's a lack of diversity is a lack of diversity in thought -- and that's something we have to change, you have to be able to argue both sides of the coin ... That's something I learned a lot from my father. He'd sort of make you argue the opposite side, even if you didn't necessarily believe it, just so you could put yourself in those shoes, this notion that that doesn't exist anymore is very scary, cause what do those people in the real world when they for the first time face real adversity? What do they do if they're not able to do that? If they're not able to take some criticism, if they grew up in that participation medal, you know, era that so many of our kids do.
