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. Stella Lee:

    The inside of the nose is lined by a multitude of cilia( which look like a shag carpet under the microscope) that are constantly providing clearance of mucus, pathogens and inhaled particulates to the back of the nose by beating in a rhythmic motion, it is amazing that our noses can differentiate between potentially harmful pathogens and innocuous agents.

  2. Bob Hurst:

    Over time, companies have become more sophisticated so banks really need to differentiate themselves more.

  3. 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.

  4. William Feather:

    An education isnt how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. Its being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you dont. Its knowing where to go to find out what you need to know; and its knowing how to use the information you get.

  5. Steve Lindsay:

    We took the socks that had captured the scent of the children overnight and flew them to the UK, where the dogs were trained to smell and differentiate samples that were infected or not.
