English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. detach(v)

    The central idea of withdrawing makes abstract in common speech a euphemism for appropriate (unlawfully), purloin, steal. In mental processes we discriminate between objects by distinguishing their differences; we separate some one element from all that does not necessarily belong to it, abstract it, and view it alone. We may separate two ideas, and hold both in mind in comparison or contrast; but when we abstract one of them, we drop the other out of thought. The mind is abstracted when it is withdrawn from all other subjects and concentrated upon one, diverted when it is drawn away from what it would or should attend to by some other interest, distracted when the attention is divided among different subjects, so that it can not be given properly to any. The trouble with the distracted person is that he is not abstracted. Compare DISCERN.

    Synonyms:
    abstract, appropriate, discriminate, distinguish, distract, divert, eliminate, purloin, remove, separate, steal, take away, withdraw

    Antonyms:
    add, combine, complete, conjoin, fill up, increase, restore, strengthen, unite

    Preposition:
    The purse may be abstracted from the pocket; the substance from the accidents; a book into a compend.

How to use detach in a sentence?

  1. k.p.:

    Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more. As time progresses and more is consumed, it slowly becomes more and more intoxicating. Then before you even know it, you become addicted. You grow to need the feeling it gives you, knowing that its slowly killing you but unable to detach. Unwilling to try, you slowly succumb to the darkness until, finally, it owns you. Only then do you realize you've slowly become a slave to the relentless darkness that consumes the rest of the population.Loneliness is like alcohol. at first it gives a slight buzz but nothing more.

  5. Kevin Harvick:

    You know where you can push and how you can push and how far you can push, and you can't push them all the way into the corner and against the fence, it was a hell of a race.
