English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. communication

    Conversation (Latin con, with) is, etymologically, an interchange of ideas with some other person or persons. Talk may be wholly one-sided. Many brilliant talkers have been incapable of conversation. There may be intercourse without conversation, as by looks, signs, etc.; communion is of hearts, with or without words; communication is often by writing, and may be uninvited and unreciprocated. Talk may denote the mere utterance of words with little thought; thus, we say idle talk, empty talk, rather than idle or empty conversation. Discourse is now applied chiefly to public addresses. A conference is more formal than a conversation. Dialog denotes ordinarily an artificial or imaginary conversation, generally of two persons, but sometimes of more. A colloquy is indefinite as to number, and generally somewhat informal. Compare BEHAVIOR.

    Synonyms:
    chat, colloquy, communion, confabulation, conference, conversation, converse, dialogue, discourse, intercourse, parley, talk

    Preposition:
    Conversation with friends; between or among the guests; about a matter.

    They have n’t gotten the message to us yet, i think mutual cooperation between our agencies would certainly benefit both of us since we are the agency that would be holding these prisoners. Communication appears more organized in Texas and Arizona, where getting the word out to sheriffs appeared to have worked. According to a spokeswoman for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, jurisdictions received a letter from Texas Commission on Jail Standards on Nov. 25, 2014 stating The Priority Enforcement Program was replacing the Secure Communities Program. At the Pima County Adult Detention Complex in Tucson, Ariz., officials there say while communication with ICE has been fluid in recent years, the alleged murder in July of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier by a criminal illegal alien who had been deported five previous times has heightened their vigilance in making the system work.
