English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. existing

    Alive applies to all degrees of life, from that which shows one to be barely existing or existent as a living thing, as when we say he is just alive, to that which implies the very utmost of vitality and power, as in the words "he is all alive," "thoroughly alive." So the word quick, which began by signifying "having life," is now mostly applied to energy of life as shown in swiftness of action. Breathing is capable of like contrast. We say of a dying man, he is still breathing; or we speak of a breathing statue, or "breathing and sounding, beauteous battle," Tennyson Princess can. v, l. 155, where it means having, or seeming to have, full and vigorous breath, abundant life. Compare ACTIVE; ALERT; NIMBLE.

    Synonyms:
    active, alert, alive, animate, animated, breathing, brisk, existent, live, lively, living, quick, subsisting, vivacious

    Antonyms:
    dead, deceased, defunct, dispirited, dull, inanimate, lifeless, spiritless

    Preposition:
    Alive in every nerve; alive to every noble impulse; alive with fervor, hope, resolve; alive through all his being.

How to use existing in a sentence?

  1. Officer Robert Machtlinger:

    Technically... urban mobility, flying without a pilot is possible, it's not a dream, it's existing, what is hindering us to go into larger volumes is regulation.

  2. Benjamin Haydon:

    The longer a man lives in this world the more he must be convinced that all domestic quarrels had better never be obtruded on the public; for, let the husband be right, or let him be wrong, there is always a sympathy existing for women which is certain to give the man the worst of it.

  3. Bill Clinton:

    I believe that you take whatever happens to you in a negotiation and you try to leverage it, in this case, I believe that one of the ways the president could get fast-track authority is to deal with the legitimate concerns of those Democrats who are potential 'yes' voters, to see what within the negotiation — or what's even in the existing framework agreement that is being drafted — could be modified or changed.

  4. Betsy DeVos:

    I would call it an elite public school system in America -- offered families a so-called' choice' for this fall, and their springtime attempt at distance learning was a disaster. I give this as an example because things like this can not happen again in the fall. It would fail America's students, and it would fail taxpayers who pay high taxes for their education, covid hits all of us, and the guidelines for 6 feet social distancing simply mean that Betsy DeVos can't put every kid back in a school with the existing square footage footprint. It's just that simple.

  5. Alexander Tsarev:

    We come out three times a year now to visit existing clients and make new connections, personal contact is important, especially in a competitive market like this one. You have to be flexible and close to your partners.
