English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. extract

    To quote is to give an author's words, either exactly, as in direct quotation, or in substance, as in indirect quotation; to cite is, etymologically, to call up a passage, as a witness is summoned. In citing a passage its exact location by chapter, page, or otherwise, must be given, so that it can be promptly called into evidence; in quoting, the location may or may not be given, but the words or substance of the passage must be given. In citing, neither the author's words nor his thought may be given, but simply the reference to the location where they may be found. To quote, in the proper sense, is to give credit to the author whose words are employed. To paraphrase is to state an author's thought more freely than in indirect quotation, keeping the substance of thought and the order of statement, but changing the language, and commonly interweaving more or less explanatory matter as if part of the original writing. One may paraphrase a work with worthy motive for homiletic, devotional, or other purposes (as in the metrical versions of the Psalms), or he may plagiarize atrociously in the form of paraphrase, appropriating all that is valuable in another's thought, with the hope of escaping detection by change of phrase. To plagiarize is to quote without credit, appropriating another's words or thought as one's own. To recite or repeat is usually to quote orally, tho recite is applied in legal phrase to a particular statement of facts which is not a quotation; a kindred use obtains in ordinary speech; as, to recite one's misfortunes.

    Synonyms:
    cite, excerpt, paraphrase, plagiarize, quote, recite, repeat

How to use extract in a sentence?

  1. Karin Wadsack:

    At this point, the cost of electricity from coal, which has been stable over a very long period of time, is no longer competitive with those other sources, fox News is something that is, to me, just a question of technology advancement. We could n’t extract natural gas at the same price 20 years ago as we can now, so natural gas-fired power plants are more competitive … Since we invented electricity 125 years ago, things have always been evolving and changing — how we get our electricity, the cost of electricity to us. What we take into account we think about the cost of electricity.

  2. Kyujin Cho:

    I'm just fascinated by how the water striders can jump on water and I'm really excited to see that we were able to extract the principles from nature to re-create one of the most fascinating locomotion of nature, the water jumping.

  3. White House:

  4. Fudge Wilson:

    i dunno...it looks pretty fucked......maybe if we kick it?" extract from conversation between fudge and myself,caught on tape sometime in 2006

  5. Grover Cleveland:

    It is the duty of those serving the people in public place closely to limit public expenditures to the actual needs of the government economically administered, because this bounds the right of the government to extract tribute from the earnings of labor or the property of the citizen, and because public extravagance begets extravagance among the people. We should never be ashamed of the simplicity and prudential economies which are best suited to the operation of a republican form of government and most compatible with the mission of the American people. Those who are selected for a limited time to manage public affairs are still of the people, and may do much by their example to encourage, consistently with the dignity of their official functions, that plain way of life which among their fellow-citizens aids integrity and promotes thrift and prosperity.
