English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. concept

    Idea is in Greek a form or an image. The word signified in early philosophical use the archetype or primal image which the Platonic philosophy supposed to be the model or pattern that existing objects imperfectly embody. This high sense has nearly disappeared from the word idea, and has been largely appropriated by ideal, tho something of the original meaning still appears when in theological or philosophical language we speak of the ideas of God. The present popular use of idea makes it to signify any product of mental apprehension or activity, considered as an object of knowledge or thought; this coincides with the primitive sense at but a single point — that an idea is mental as opposed to anything substantial or physical; thus, almost any mental product, as a belief, conception, design, opinion, etc., may now be called an idea. Compare FANCY; IDEAL.

    Synonyms:
    apprehension, archetype, belief, conceit, conception, design, fancy, fantasy, idea, ideal, image, imagination, impression, judgment, model, notion, opinion, pattern, plan, purpose, sentiment, supposition, theory, thought

    Antonyms:
    actuality, fact, reality, substance

How to use concept in a sentence?

  1. Dana DeBeauvoir:

    Election Judges are responsible for conducting the election and ensuring a safe haven for all voters to vote comfortably, a gun can quickly escalate partisan tensions. This bill if passed will create fear, distrust, and more tension in the polling place whether it's the election judge carrying a weapon or any voter walking in the polling place. Firearms do not support the concept of a safe haven for voting for all voters.

  2. Governor Cuomo:

    This is an extraordinary time in this nation's history. It will go down in the history books as one of those moments of true crisis and confusion and chaos. I lived through 9/11, i remember the fear and the panic that existed in 9/11 where a single moment your whole concept of life and society can be shaken, where you need to see government perform at its best.

  3. Ernest Sternberg:

    That concept did not work. It is hard to know how much of the decline was caused by the plaza itself or the population and business decline that was happening at the time.

  4. Hillary Clinton:

    I think I was asked this a couple months ago, and I said, you know, that term carries with it legal import. It is a very important concept and label for behavior that deserves that name, i said we are only at the beginning at seeing this and I am not sure yet we have enough evidence. I am sure now we have enough evidence.

  5. Jimmy Carter:

    So far, we Americans down through history have had a hard time adjusting to this concept of equality... even now, some of us are still struggling to accept the fact that all people are equal in the eyes of God.
