English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. explicit

    Both explicit and express are opposed to what is merely implicit or implied. That which is explicit is unfolded, so that it may not be obscure, doubtful, or ambiguous; that which is express is uttered or stated so decidedly that it may not be forgotten nor overlooked. An explicit statement is too clear to be misunderstood; an express command is too emphatic to be disregarded. Compare CLEAR.

    express

    Antonyms:
    ambiguous, doubtful, implicit, implied, indefinite, indeterminate, uncertain, vague
