English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. differentiate

    To compare (Latin con, together, and par, equal) is to place together in order to show likeness or unlikeness; to contrast (Latin contra, against, and sto, stand) is to set in opposition in order to show unlikeness. We contrast objects that have been already compared. We must compare them, at least momentarily, even to know that they are different. We contrast them when we observe their unlikeness in a general way; we differentiate them when we note the difference exactly and point by point. We distinguish objects when we note a difference that may fall short of contrast; we discriminate them when we classify or place them according to their differences.

    Synonyms:
    compare, contrast, discriminate, oppose

    Preposition:
    We contrast one object with another.

How to use differentiate in a sentence?

  1. Joseph Schull:

  2. Ramon Llamas:

    This time it's one smartphone cut in half, so there are some price savings to be had, samsung continues to see an opportunity to differentiate itself in an otherwise copycat market and still make some money off of it. It already has the innovation chops and the manufacturing capabilities to do this themselves, and it's practically a category that it can claim as its own until foldables gain greater salience. That's a strong position for Samsung.

  3. Thomas Elliot:

  5. Memphis Garret:
