English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. collection

    The phrase battle array or array of battle is archaic and poetic; we now say in line or order of battle. The parade is for exhibition and oversight, and partial rehearsal of military manual and maneuvers. Array refers to a continuous arrangement of men, so that all may be seen or reviewed at once. This is practically impossible with the vast armies of our day. We say rather the disposition of troops, which expresses their location so as to sustain and support, though unable to see or readily communicate with each other. Compare DRESS.

    Synonyms:
    army, arrangement, array, battle array, disposition, exhibition, line of battle, order, order of battle, parade, show, sight

How to use collection in a sentence?

  1. Greg Barbaccia:

    China remains one of the largest focuses of United States intelligence collection efforts and is only ramping up, the biggest challenge is that the Ministry of State Security (MSS) has a world-class counterintelligence and counterespionage operation. They have access to all the information that flows in, out, and through the country, as well as all possible information on their population. This makes for a supremely difficult environment to run a human source, or employ a technical collection capability.

  2. Naeem Khan:

    I am confident that the fans of the brand and those in industry who truly appreciate the art of design and craftsmanship will come out to support us, i am thrilled with the new collection and we are looking forward to a great show.

  3. Gordon Noble:

    We are digging in what is essentially the area that the Picts threw their rubbish but this collection of the waste products of their day-to-day lives is a treasure trove to archaeologists, what’s exciting is the level of preservation here. We’ve found animal bone which rarely survives in mainland Scotland because of the acidic soil. We are already getting really nice information about what people ate within the fort and we hope to extract a level of information we’ve not had for Pictish sites before.

  4. Security Center Bill Evanina:

    Most Americans are unaware that the Chinese government has made collection of health care data a national priority for them. They are collecting the health and genomic data of Americans on a mass scale.
