English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. fact

    A circumstance (Latin circum, around, and sto, stand), is something existing or occurring in connection with or relation to some other fact or event, modifying or throwing light upon the principal matter without affecting its essential character; an accompaniment is something that unites with the principal matter, tho not necessary to it; as, the piano accompaniment to a song; a concomitant goes with a thing in natural connection, but in a subordinate capacity, or perhaps in contrast; as, cheerfulness is a concomitant of virtue. A circumstance is not strictly, nor usually, an occasion, condition, effect, or result. (See these words under CAUSE.) Nor is the circumstance properly an incident. (See under ACCIDENT.) We say, "My decision will depend upon circumstances" — not "upon incidents." That a man wore a blue necktie would not probably be the cause, occasion, condition, or concomitant of his committing murder; but it might be a very important circumstance in identifying him as the murderer. All the circumstances make up the situation. A certain disease is the cause of a man's death; his suffering is an incident; that he is in his own home, that he has good medical attendance, careful nursing, etc., are consolatory circumstances. With the same idea of subordination, we often say, "This is not a circumstance to that." So a person is said to be in easy circumstances. Compare EVENT.

    Synonyms:
    accompaniment, circumstance, concomitant, detail, event, feature, incident, item, occurrence, particular, point, position, situation

    Preposition:
    "Mere situation is expressed by 'in the circumstances'; action affected is performed 'under the circumstances.'" [Murray's "New English Dictionary"]

How to use fact in a sentence?

  1. Richard Freeman:

    Therefore we cant discount the possibility that what people see and believe is the Loch Ness monster might be a giant eel. i dont believe the eel theory has killed off the Loch Ness Monster, quite the reverse in fact.

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Times have changed and things are no longer the way they used to be. And so, you don't really have to travel around the world to make a global or worldwide impact. Because, you can make it (global impact) right where you are presently via the internet. As a matter of fact, I'm yet to travel around the world as a person. But, guess what? my thought-provoking quotes, ideas, insights, motivations and inspirations have already travelled around the world on my own behalf. Oh! yes, you heard me right, I'm being quoted already globally (all over the internet and even beyond it). ~Emeasoba George

  3. Associated Press:

    My father used to say to me, when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me. So it's going to be like that for you.' That doesn't make sense — just because you suffered it doesn't mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact, quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had, that you can make it right for your kids.

  4. Xavier Becerra:

    Information is power, and all women should have access to the information they need when making personal health care decisions, the Reproductive FACT Act ensures that women in California receive accurate information about their health care options, including whether a facility is a licensed medical provider. The California Department of Justice will do everything necessary to protect women’s health care rights. The attorney general was not immediately available for additional comment when contacted by Fox News. The Supreme Court is intervening to regulate these types of laws and provide a sense of consistency. Indeed, other courts in states like New York, Texas and Maryland have invalidated laws that were similar to The Reproductive FACT Act. But some states -- such as Hawaii and Illinois -- currently have similar laws in place, which, like in California, have also led to appeals and other lawsuits. Specifically in Hawaii, Thomas Glessner said, one of the pregnancy resource centers is located in a church.

  5. Kathryn Lewis Ginebaugh:

    One of the things we've worked on with the RAs is how to have the conversations with the students so that it helps the students, if they have some internal stigma about getting help for an emotional difficulty, that they know it's OK. In fact, there is help available and a lot of students don't realize there are real, effective treatments for depression and anxiety.
