English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. equal

    Adequate, commensurate, and sufficient signify equal to some given occasion or work; as, a sum sufficient to meet expenses; an adequate remedy for the disease. Commensurate is the more precise and learned word, signifying that which exactly measures the matter in question. Adapted, fit, suitable, and qualified refer to the qualities which match or suit the occasion. A clergyman may have strength adequate to the work of a porter; but that would not be a fit or suitable occupation for him. Work is satisfactory if it satisfies those for whom it is done, though it may be very poor work judged by some higher standard. Qualified refers to acquired abilities; competent to both natural and acquired; a qualified teacher may be no longer competent, by reason of ill health. Able and capable suggest general ability and reserved power, able being the higher word of the two. An able man will do something well in any position. A capable man will come up to any ordinary demand. We say an able orator, a capable accountant.

    Synonyms:
    able, adapted, adequate, capable, commensurate, competent, fit, fitted, fitting, qualified, satisfactory, sufficient, suitable

    Antonyms:
    disqualified, inadequate, incompetent, inferior, insufficient, poor, unequal, unfit, unqualified, unsatisfactory, unsuitable, useless, worthless

    Preposition:
    Adequate to the demand; for the purpose.

How to use equal in a sentence?

  1. Victor Cousin:

    All men have an equal right to the free development of their faculties; they have an equal right to the impartial protection of the state; but it is not true, it is against all the laws of reason and equity, it is against the eternal nature of things, that the indolent man and the laborious man, the spendthrift and the economist, the imprudent and the wise, should obtain and enjoy an equal amount of goods.

  2. Alan Brown:

    An informal complaint was made through command channels, and the commander has already assigned an investigating officer and the investigation is ongoing, the command is extremely sensitive to any allegations that involve equal opportunity or discrimination and will investigate every allegation.

  3. Stanley Fischer:

    The limited macroprudential toolkit in the United States leads me to conclude that there may be times when adjustments in monetary policy should be discussed as a means to curb risks to financial stability, a more restrictive monetary policy would, all else being equal, lead to deviations from price stability and full employment.

  4. Dennis Wiersma:

    The Netherlands is a country of freedom, one that stands for the equal value of men and women, gay and straight people, black and white people, those who support these values, will feel at home in the Netherlands. But those who do not, do not belong here.

  5. Gil Robertson:

    I wish I could tell you (why African Americans were not nominated), especially when they have been recognized by other groups around in the community, and one would think that they would have also received equal recognition from the Academy. Especially when you consider there is a lot of overlap in membership with the professional guild, many of those individuals are also members of the Academy.
