English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. enough

    Enough is relative, denoting a supply equal to a given demand. A temperature of 70° Fahrenheit is enough for a living-room; of 212° enough to boil water; neither is enough to melt iron. Sufficient, from the Latin, is an equivalent of the Saxon enough, with no perceptible difference of meaning, but only of usage, enough being the more blunt, homely, and forcible word, while sufficient is in many cases the more elegant or polite. Sufficient usually precedes its noun; enough usually and preferably follows. That is ample which gives a safe, but not a large, margin beyond a given demand; that is abundant, affluent, bountiful, liberal, plentiful, which is largely in excess of manifest need. Plentiful is used of supplies, as of food, water, etc.; as, "a plentiful rain," Ps. lxviii, 9. We may also say a copious rain; but copious can be applied to thought, language, etc., where plentiful can not well be used. Affluent and liberal both apply to riches, resources; liberal, with especial reference to giving or expending. (Compare synonyms for ADEQUATE.) Affluent, referring especially to riches, may be used of thought, feeling, etc. Neither affluent, copious, nor plentiful can be used of time or space; a field is sometimes called plentiful, not with reference to its extent, but to its productiveness. Complete expresses not excess or overplus, and yet not mere sufficiency, but harmony, proportion, fitness to a design, or ideal. Ample and abundant may be applied to any subject. We have time enough, means that we can reach our destination without haste, but also without delay; if we have ample time, we may move leisurely, and note what is by the way; if we have abundant time, we may pause to converse with a friend, to view the scenery, or to rest when weary. Lavish and profuse imply a decided excess, oftenest in the ill sense. We rejoice in abundant resources, and honor generous hospitality; lavish or profuse expenditure suggests extravagance and wastefulness. Luxuriant is used especially of that which is abundant in growth; as, a luxuriant crop.

    Synonyms:
    abounding, abundant, adequate, affluent, ample, bounteous, bountiful, complete, copious, exuberant, full, generous, large, lavish, liberal, luxuriant, overflowing, plenteous, plentiful, profuse, replete, rich, sufficient, teeming

    Antonyms:
    deficient, drained, exhausted, impoverished, inadequate, insufficient, mean, miserly, narrow, niggardly, poor, scant, scanty, scarce, scrimped, short, small, sparing, stingy, straitened

    Preposition:
    Plentiful in resources.

How to use enough in a sentence?

  1. Karemand Gorka:

    Thank you @realDonaldTrump, thank you @PressSec, on behalf of Americans whove had enough of FakeNews punks like @BrianKarem.

  2. Klaus Spielkamp:

    They have almost 20% and they could gather enough shares to block (the acquisition), but I don't think it is in their interest to do so, they have no intention of buying the company. They want to increase the price, but if Alfa decides not to go ahead, they have a lot to lose. You can only pressure up to a certain point. It is now a poker game.

  3. John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

    If anyone is crazy enough to want to kill a president of the United States, he can do it. All he must be prepared to do is give his life for the president's.

  4. Mark Denham:

    We have not done anything yet but it is top of our agenda to sit down and decide whether the baby has been thrown out with the bath water, when you list all the problems, you do wonder how this system is ever going to recover properly. But we do need a functioning banking system, and one or two valuations are starting to look appealing enough to persuade us to ride out the uncertainty.

  5. Bruce Hill:

    I was fortunate enough to see my brother several times in Vietnam … I got home and a month later he was killed.
