English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. eminent

    Deep, while an antonym of high in usage, may apply to the very same distance simply measured in an opposite direction, high applying to vertical distance measured from below upward, and deep to vertical distance measured from above downward; as, a deep valley nestling between high mountains. High is a relative term signifying greatly raised above any object, base, or surface, in comparison with what is usual, or with some standard; a table is high if it exceeds thirty inches; a hill is not high at a hundred feet. That is tall whose height is greatly in excess of its breadth or diameter, and whose actual height is great for an object of its kind; as, a tall tree; a tall man; tall grass. That is lofty which is imposing or majestic in height; we term a spire tall with reference to its altitude, or lofty with reference to its majestic appearance. That is elevated which is raised somewhat above its surroundings; that is eminent which is far above them; as, an elevated platform; an eminent promontory. In the figurative sense, elevated is less than eminent, and this less than exalted; we speak of high, lofty, or elevated thoughts, aims, etc., in the good sense, but sometimes of high feelings, looks, words, etc., in the invidious sense of haughty or arrogant. A high ambition may be merely selfish; a lofty ambition is worthy and noble. Towering, in the literal sense compares with lofty and majestic; but in the figurative sense, its use is almost always invidious; as, a towering passion; a towering ambition disregards and crushes all opposing considerations, however rational, lovely, or holy. Compare STEEP.

    Synonyms:
    elevated, exalted, high, lofty, noble, proud, steep, tall, towering, uplifted

    Antonyms:
    base, deep, degraded, depressed, dwarfed, inferior, low, mean, short, stunted

How to use eminent in a sentence?

  1. Ron McClain:

    We understand and are sensitive to the issues surrounding the potential use of eminent domain, which is rarely used.

  2. Joseph Addison:

    It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.

  3. Mike Pence:

    Last December [ in fact, Jan. 2, 2019 ], China became the first nation to land on the far side of the moon, and revealed their ambition to seize the lunar strategic high ground and become the worlds pre-eminent spacefaring nation, and for more than seven years, without a viable human space launch program of our own, Russia has been charging the United States more than $80 million a seat every time an American astronaut travels to the International Space Station.

  4. RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo):

    Those who obtain an eminent position, shall acquire critics, resentment, wrath and isolation; choose your friends for who they are, instead of who you are.

  5. Chris Christie:

    It depends upon the circumstances. That is what eminent domain is all about, that's why we have the ability for people to go to court and work through that, i can't give a generalized answer on that. A generalized answer is just sophomoric and I won't give one.
