English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. exquisite

    The definition of beauty, "perfection of form," is a good key to the meaning of beautiful, if we understand "form" in its widest sense. There must also be harmony and unity, and in human beings spiritual loveliness, to constitute an object or a person really beautiful. Thus, we speak of a beautiful landscape, a beautiful poem. But beautiful implies also, in concrete objects, softness of outline and delicacy of mold; it is opposed to all that is hard and rugged, hence we say a beautiful woman, but not a beautiful man. Beautiful has the further limit of not transcending our powers of appreciation. Pretty expresses in a far less degree that which is pleasing to a refined taste in objects comparatively small, slight, and dainty; as, a pretty bonnet; a pretty girl. That is handsome which is not only superficially pleasing, but well and harmoniously proportioned, with usually the added idea that it is made so by art, breeding, or training; as, a handsome horse; a handsome house. Handsome is a term far inferior to beautiful; we may even say a handsome villain. Fair denotes what is bright, smooth, clear, and without blemish; as, a fair face. The word applies wholly to what is superficial; we can say "fair, yet false." In a specific sense, fair has the sense of blond, as opposed to dark or brunette. One who possesses vivacity, wit, good nature, or other pleasing qualities may be attractive without beauty. Comely denotes an aspect that is smooth, genial, and wholesome, with a certain fulness of contour and pleasing symmetry, tho falling short of the beautiful; as, a comely matron. That is picturesque which would make a striking picture.

    Synonyms:
    attractive, beauteous, beautiful, bewitching, bonny, charming, comely, delightful, elegant, fair, fine, graceful, handsome, lovely, picturesque, pretty

    Antonyms:
    awkward, clumsy, deformed, disgusting, frightful, ghastly, grim, grisly, grotesque, hideous, horrid, odious, repulsive, shocking, ugly, unattractive, uncouth, ungainly, unlovely, unpleasant

    Preposition:
    Beautiful to the eye; beautiful in appearance, in spirit; "beautiful for situation," Ps. xlviii, 2; beautiful of aspect, of its kind.

Long live the creativity and the spirit of inventiveness!

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.
