English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. feat(n)

    An act is strictly and originally something accomplished by an exercise of power, in which sense it is synonymous with deed or effect. Action is a doing. Act is therefore single, individual, momentary; action a complex of acts, or a process, state, or habit of exerting power. We say a virtuous act, but rather a virtuous course of action. We speak of the action of an acid upon a metal, not of its act. Act is used, also, for the simple exertion of power; as, an act of will. In this sense an act does not necessarily imply an external effect, while an action does. Morally, the act of murder is in the determination to kill; legally, the act is not complete without the striking of the fatal blow. Act and deed are both used for the thing done, but act refers to the power put forth, deed to the result accomplished; as, a voluntary act, a bad deed. In connection with other words act is more usually qualified by the use of another noun, action by an adjective preceding; we may say a kind act, though oftener an act of kindness, but only a kind action, not an action of kindness. As between act and deed, deed is commonly used of great, notable, and impressive acts, as are achievement, exploit, and feat.

    Festus: We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths.

    Bailey Festus, A Country Town, sc. 7.

    A feat exhibits strength, skill, personal power, whether mental or physical, especially the latter; as, a feat of arms, a feat of memory. An exploit is a conspicuous or glorious deed, involving valor or heroism, usually combined with strength, skill, loftiness of thought, and readiness of resource; an achievement is the doing of something great and noteworthy; an exploit is brilliant, but its effect may be transient; an achievement is solid, and its effect enduring. Act and action are both in contrast to all that is merely passive and receptive. The intensest action is easier than passive endurance.

    Synonyms:
    accomplishment, achievement, act, action, consummation, deed, doing, effect, execution, exercise, exertion, exploit, motion, movement, operation, performance, proceeding, transaction, work

    Antonyms:
    cessation, deliberation, endurance, immobility, inaction, inactivity, inertia, passion (In philosophic sense), quiescence, quiet, repose, rest, suffering, suspension

How to use feat in a sentence?

  1. Jerry Rice:

    This may be a decision the The Buffaloes lament : A fumble on a conservative run play while trying to run out the clock with less than 30 seconds remaining until halftime. The Utes turned Jarek Broussards miscue into a 42-yard field goal by Jadon Redding as time expired to give the offense a little confidence boost. Ty Jordan shined in a matchup between two highly touted tailbacks. The freshman finished with 147 yards rushing. His counterpart, Broussard, started slow but finished with 80 yards, which was well below his 183.3 average. The Buffaloes suffered a huge blow in the first half when they lost linebacker Nate Landman to what could be a season-ending ankle injury. Using a scooter and wearing a leg brace, the emotional leader of the team returned to the sideline. His absence was felt in the second half. Jerry Rice gave The Buffaloes a 14-7 lead late in the first half with Colorados first punt return for a score since Sept. 9, 2017. Jerry Rice also scored on a bubble screen to put The Buffaloes up 21-10 moments in the the third quarter. The last Colorado player to record a TD on both a reception and a return( punt or kickoff) in the same game was Walter Stanley against Texas Tech on Sept. 12, 1981, according to the school. Rices feat felt bittersweet in light of the loss. Kind of hurts.

  2. Shailene Woodley:

    I define a hero as somebody, who against the judgement of other people, if they believe something will positively impact the world and they chose to do it and honor their integrity. That's what I sort of consider a hero, no matter how big or small a feat they create, and in that light, absolutely I think Edward Snowden is a hero.

  3. Erich Fromm:

    That man can destroy life is just as miraculous a feat as that he can create it, for life is the miracle, the inexplicable. In the act of destruction, man sets himself above life he transcends himself as a creature. Thus, the ultimate choice for a man, inasmuch as he is driven to transcend himself, is to create or to destroy, to love or to hate.

  4. Christopher Heywood:

    [A] literary feat of objective narration by an Afrikaner writer was Sword in the Sand (1969), Johannes Meintjes’ narration of Gideon Scheepers’ death by summary trial and execution. In Meintjes’ hands, history enters the realm of epic narrative

  5. Kanti Chidambaram:

    This is not a feat of excellence. It's a feat fuelled by desperation caused due to the callous attitude of the government.
