English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. conversation

    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, communication, communion, confabulation, conference, converse, dialogue, discourse, intercourse, parley, talk

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

  1. House Speaker John Boehner:

    I hope that President Obama, if and when he has a conversation with the Cuban dictator during the Organization of American States summit, will take the opportunity to condemn this violence in the strongest possible terms and reaffirm that the United States should and must always stand on the side of human rights and democracy against Communist tyranny.

    No. No, no and a million times, no. I've had very little conversation with the administration, the Postal Service is The Postal Service. I report to a board of governors, a bipartisan board of governors, and that's where we, where my plans for what we do with The Postal Service get approved.

  3. Carly Fiorina:

    Whoopi Goldberg -- who said know what, look I’ve been called all kinds of things, Whoopi … I’ve been called a bimbo from the time I was a secretary to the time I was a CEO. I think we need to be able to have civil conversations in this country about our differences … so I'd just like to have a conversation about where we agree and where we disagree.

  4. Barack Obama:

    It's this intellectual arrogance that now you can’t even have a conversation about it. The climate is changing, and we need to adapt to that reality.

  5. Melissa Bragg:

    I know I ’m addicted to my phone, being a stay-at-home homeschooling mom, I really feel isolated from other adults much of the time. Social media probably accounts for 90 percent of my socialization. I’ve joined way too many Facebook groups and I am constantly just scrolling through them. It can get in the way of me taking care of my household responsibilities. Sometimes I ’ll be so engrossed in a conversation happening online that an hour or more goes by and I have n’t moved.
