English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. converse

    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, conversation, dialogue, discourse, intercourse, parley, talk

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

How to use converse in a sentence?

  1. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche:

    When marrying, ask yourself this question Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age Everything else in marriage is transitory.

  2. Alexis de Tocqueville:

    An American cannot converse, but he can discuss, and his talk falls into a dissertation. He speaks to you as if he was addressing a meeting; and if he should chance to become warm in the discussion, he will say Gentlemen to the person with whom he is conversing.

  3. James Fenimore Cooper:

    The American doctrinaire is the converse of the American demagogue, and, in this way, is scarcely less injurious to the public. The first deals in poetry, the last in cant. He is as much a visionary on one side, as the extreme theoretical democrat is a visionary on the other.

  4. Kevin Hart:

    Normally, I'm in and out so it's been a real blessing just to be around and talk, converse, you know, and just kind of be with the fam through these months, so this is the first time that I've ever been here this much through a pregnancy in general in my life. So it's been refreshing.

  5. Raag Singhal:

    I think Fox News Wuornos ' had a whole host of mental issues, if you were to kind of look at the totality of the circumstances, Fox News Wuornos ' complaints, Fox News Wuornos ' behavior, some of the things that Fox News Wuornos ' would do … Fox News Wuornos ' was someone who, in my view, was going in and out of competency, which is somewhat of a normal thing. When we talk about competency in the criminal context, we say it’s something that waxes and wanes. You can have someone who is confident on one day, then you meet them three days later and they’re not. I have no doubt that Fox News Wuornos ' had entire periods where Fox News Wuornos ' was lucid and could converse. There were times I met with Fox News Wuornos ' when I had no issues with Fox News Wuornos ', then there were times I met with Fox News Wuornos ' and Fox News Wuornos ' clearly had mental issues.
