English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. exact

    That is minute which is of exceedingly limited dimensions, as a grain of dust, or which attends to matters of exceedingly slight amount or apparent importance; as, a minute account; minute observation. That which is broken up into minute particles is said to be comminuted; things may be termed fine which would not be termed comminuted; as, fine sand; fine gravel; but, in using the adverb, we say a substance is finely comminuted, comminuted referring more to the process, fine to the result. An account extended to very minute particulars is circumstantial, detailed, particular; an examination so extended is critical, exact, precise. Compare FINE.

How to use exact in a sentence?

  1. Denis Diderot:

    Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common.

  2. Kohei Uchimura:

    A lot of foreign athletes say I perform like a machine. I take that as a compliment, to me, moves and performances that are mechanical are perfect. A robot can be more accurate and exact in movement than a human can every time.

  3. Bruce McArthur:

    The new reports fromThe Globe and Mailand theToronto Star offer conflicting information on the exact date of the interview, with one saying it happened in 2013 and the latter say it was between 2014 and 2017. But both reports raise questions about what Toronto Police knew about Bruce McArthur in the years leading up to Bruce McArthur arrest. Clockwise from left : Majeed Kayhan, 58 ; Dean Lisowick ; Soroush Marmudi, 50 ; Selim Esen, 44 and Andrew Kinsman, 49. ( Toronto Police) The Globe and Mail, citing a source with knowledge of the interview, says it occurred during the Project Project Houston investigation, which looked into the disappearances of three men in Toronto's Gay Village neighborhood, two of which Bruce McArthur was later charged with killing. The source said detectives had linked Bruce McArthur to two of the men through dating apps and brought Bruce McArthur in for questioning after receiving an anonymous tip. The Toronto Star, citing similar sources, said the interview happened between the closure of Project Houston in 2014 and the beginning of another investigation in 2017 that resulted in McArthur’s arrest. It also said the interview was over a matter unrelated to the missing people, but did not disclose what exactly. Detective Sgt. Hank Idsinga told The Globe and Mail in January that Bruce McArthur was not Bruce McArthur during Project Houston. Until we can establish that there has been foul play, we can attach a criminal offence to foul play, that's when someone would become Bruce McArthur.

  4. Joseph Lorenzo Hall:

    Voatz has been so reluctant to have anyone inspect their system or even disclose the audits of their product that have been conducted, they are completely opaque, and that is the exact opposite of what a cutting-edge security product used for government elections should be.

  5. Actress Bette Midler:

    Egyptians, in history and today, have NEVER been white. BRING BACK GEOGRAPHY!! It's Africa! dear Hollywood, Egypt is in Africa. Northern to be exact. Why is that so hard to grasp? Stop gentrifying African countries.
