English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. critic

    Etymologically, the amateur is one who loves, the connoisseur one who knows. In usage, the term amateur is applied to one who pursues any study or art simply from the love of it; the word carries a natural implication of superficialness, tho marked excellence is at times attained by amateurs. A connoisseur is supposed to be so thoroughly informed regarding any art or work as to be able to criticize or select intelligently and authoritatively; there are many incompetent critics, but there can not, in the true sense, be an incompetent connoisseur. The amateur practises to some extent that in regard to which he may not be well informed; the connoisseur is well informed in regard to that which he may not practise at all. A novice or tyro may be a professional; an amateur never is; the amateur may be skilled and experienced as the novice or tyro never is. Dilettante, which had originally the sense of amateur, has to some extent come to denote one who is superficial, pretentious, and affected, whether in theory or practise.

    Synonyms:
    amateur, connoisseur, dilettante, novice, tyro

    Preposition:
    An amateur in art.

How to use critic in a sentence?

  1. Professor Kalt:

    Citing me that way, they make it sound like I was making that argument. But I wasn't. On page 37, I raise that argument as something a critic might say, and then I refute it.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Be self-confident! Believe in yourself first before anyone else! Nobody, absolutely no one, in the world should be able to shake your self-confidence without your consent. Be a well-balanced self-critic to improve yourself, at all times! You're a "Cut above the rest" - and that you mustn't ever forget. Good luck!

  3. Jules Renard:

    We are born at the rise of the curtain and we die with its fall, and every night in the presence of our patrons we write our new creation, and every night it is blotted out forever; and of what use is it to say to audience or to critic, Ah, but you should have seen me last Tuesday?
