English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. colleague

    Colleague is used always in a good sense, associate and coadjutor generally so; ally, assistant, associate, attendant, companion, helper, either in a good or a bad sense; abetter, accessory, accomplice, confederate, almost always in a bad sense. Ally is oftenest used of national and military matters, or of some other connection regarded as great and important; as, allies of despotism. Colleague is applied to civil and ecclesiastical connections; members of Congress from the same State are colleagues, even though they may be bitter opponents politically and personally. An Associate Justice of the Supreme Court is near in rank to the Chief Justice. A surgeon's assistant is a physician or medical student who shares in the treatment and care of patients; a surgeon's attendant is one who rolls bandages and the like. Follower, henchman, retainer are persons especially devoted to a chief, and generally bound to him by necessity, fee, or reward. Partner has come to denote almost exclusively a business connection. In law, an abettor (the general legal spelling) is always present, either actively or constructively, at the commission of the crime; an accessory never. An accomplice is usually a principal; an accessory never. If present, though only to stand outside and keep watch against surprise, one is an abettor, and not an accessory. At common law, an accessory implies a principal, and can not be convicted until after the conviction of the principal; the accomplice or abettor can be convicted as a principal. Accomplice and abettor have nearly the same meaning, but the former is the popular, the latter more distinctively the legal term. Compare APPENDAGE; AUXILIARY.

    Synonyms:
    abetter, abettor, accessory, accomplice, ally, assistant, associate, attendant, coadjutor, companion, confederate, follower, helper, henchman, participator, partner, retainer

    Antonyms:

How to use colleague in a sentence?

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    11. Inspiration - this is absolutely amazing and very beautiful madness. 12. Creativity is like a butterfly flying, light wings of inspiration will help fly away beyond the limits of human understanding. 13. Brilliant inspiration comes by itself, namely, a heart-revelation that gives people insight. This is a very special state of mind. The special state of the creative person. 14. A creative person should make discoveries, not mixes and remixes. 15. Do not imitate, do not admire, but simply excel. 16. Shake reality with your creativity. 17. With each century, the imagination of creative people is becoming uglier and uglier, dumber and dumber. 18. Do not imitate, just dominate. 19. How amusing is this evolution of plagiarism. 20. Creative people try for us, only at the beginning of their careers. In the 20th century, there was more theater in the art of cinema. In the 21st there is more advertising, in the same century, music becomes poorer, the richness of sounds gradually decreases, and the number of lazy patterns increases, and painting becomes meaningless and not aesthetic. But everyone is trying to convince you of the opposite, they say they are authorities, and your opinion does not mean anything. 21. Creativity is an alternative universe. 22. Do not break the balance between idea and quality. Since quality is a beautiful density, the pleasure of misunderstanding, because the idea is drowning in quality, and people can not understand your creative work. Whereas a noble idea is a truth that makes everything transparent, and passes through us and gives us genuine pleasure and inspiration from the catharsis of insight. 23. Pride and vanity confuse science and art. 24. 1. Scientific research is at an impasse, because one scientific researcher, by virtue of his pride, will never agree with the opinion of his colleague from the same field of science. Even the most intellectually developed person does not see the whole truth, he only assumes that is (theories and hypotheses), assumption and endless variations of interpretation speak of ignorance. Many researchers have stopped discovering anything really important, they only rephrase the scientific work of each other. The thirst to see and know what really is, and not what you want to see, this is science. 2. What is a library is a collection of opinions, reading any book, throughout the book you are told about the same idea, consisting of only one sentence or phrase. No matter how much you read, it is important how much you understand. 25. 1. Psychology is hacking designed to learn how to manage people. 2. Psychology is a giant drill. 26. Never trust science. Believe the facts, what the teleportator and the time machine show. 27. Fate controls a person using a game joystick. 28. Human thinking is a hierarchy of feelings and emotions, from the darkest and lowest to the lightest and highest. 29. The evil comedy of life is that every new person is a new crack in your psyche. 30. The reading person is a brain eater. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
