English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. food

    Food is, in the popular sense, whatever one eats in contradistinction to what one drinks. Thus, we speak of food and drink, of wholesome, unwholesome, or indigestible food; but in a more scientific sense whatever, when taken into the digestive organs, serves to build up structure or supply waste may be termed food; the word is extended to plants to signify whatever taken in any way into the organism serves similar purposes; thus, we speak of liquid food, plant food, etc.; in this wider sense food is closely synonymous with nutriment, nourishment, and sustenance. Diet refers to the quantity and quality of food habitually taken, with reference to preservation of health. Victuals is a plain, homely word for whatever may be eaten; we speak of choice viands, cold victuals. Nourishment and sustenance apply to whatever can be introduced into the system as a means of sustaining life; we say of a convalescent, he is taking nourishment. Nutriment and nutrition have more of scientific reference to the vitalizing principles of various foods; thus, wheat is said to contain a great amount of nutriment. Regimen considers food as taken by strict rule, but applies more widely to the whole ordering of life. Fare is a general word for all table supplies, good or bad; as, sumptuous fare; wretched fare. Feed, fodder, and provender are used only of the food of the lower animals, feed denoting anything consumed, but more commonly grain, fodder denoting hay, cornstalks, or the like, sometimes called "long feed;" provender is dry feed, whether grain or hay, straw, etc. Forage denotes any kind of food suitable for horses and cattle, primarily as obtained by a military force in scouring the country, especially an enemy's country.

    Synonyms:
    aliment, diet, fare, feed, fodder, forage, nourishment, nutriment, nutrition, pabulum, provender, regimen, sustenance, viands, victuals

How to use food in a sentence?

  1. J. G. Holland:

    God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    You might have asked God (almighty) for many things and perhaps he has given you some of them. However, you should ever remain grateful to him (God). For, he gives you many crucial things (air, food, water, shelter, clothing etc) on daily basis. Even without you asking for them. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Henry David Thoreau, "Walden," the Conclusion:

    Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

  4. Dale Vince:

    I think soccer has a bad rep for rubbish food. It deserves it, I think, on the whole. So I think that other clubs can learn from that. Why can't we have great food at a soccer game? We should be able to. So it's partly eco, partly match-day experience; at least from a food perspective. We're, like, fifth tier of English soccer, so it's a bit different here from what it's like in the Premiership, for example, where they're ahead of the curve compared to a lot of clubs at our level, let's say. But I would say - on the eco front - we'll be ahead of that.

  5. Restaurant Action Alliance:

    The decision to ban foam food service products, which comprise only 10 percent of polystyrene foam material, will send the remaining 90 percent to landfills at the taxpayers' expense.
