English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. constitutional

    The widely divergent senses in which the word radical is used, by which it can be at some time interchanged with any word in the above list, are all formed upon the one primary sense of having to do with or proceeding from the root (Latin radix); a radical difference is one that springs from the root, and is thus constitutional, essential, fundamental, organic, original; a radical change is one that does not stop at the surface, but reaches down to the very root, and is entire, thorough, total; since the majority find superficial treatment of any matter the easiest and most comfortable, radical measures, which strike at the root of evil or need, are apt to be looked upon as extreme.

    Synonyms:
    complete, entire, essential, extreme, fundamental, ingrained, innate, native, natural, organic, original, perfect, positive, primitive, radical, thorough, thoroughgoing, total

    Antonyms:
    conservative, inadequate, incomplete, moderate, palliative, partial, slight, superficial, tentative, trial

How to use constitutional in a sentence?

  1. Bill Clinton:

    And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against, but the President's been true to form.

  2. Neal Katyal:

    The president would be mistaken to interpret today’s decision as a greenlight to continue his unwise and un-American policies, as the Supreme Court has repeatedly said, not everything that is constitutional is good policy. The travel ban is atrocious policy, and makes us less safe and undermines our American ideals.

  3. Lindsey Graham:

    While I'm glad the majority leader believes Leader McConnell would be Leader McConnell, it's a mistake not to pass legislation to protect the investigation, we ought to head off a constitutional crisis at the pass, rather than waiting until it's too late. ... I hope Senate Judiciary Committee moves forward with a bill, and that members of Senator McConnell's caucus push Senator McConnell to reconsider.

  4. The Spanish government:

    Any illegality will be corrected and any violation of our constitutional framework will be responded to.

  5. Alvaro Huerta:

    This is an incredibly important case not only for the thousands of people who go through CBP processing every day -- we're going to see their treatment improve dramatically, but I think it's incredibly important because this sets constitutional minimums for the way people in detention should be treated, so we hope and expect that this is going to have ramifications beyond Tucson Sector.
