English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. gang

    A conspiracy is a combination of persons for an evil purpose, or the act of so combining. Conspiracy is a distinct crime under common, and generally under statutory, law. A faction is more extensive than a conspiracy, less formal in organization, less definite in plan. Faction and its adjective, factious, have always an unfavorable sense. Cabal commonly denotes a conspiracy of leaders. A gang is a company of workmen all doing the same work under one leader; the word is used figuratively only of combinations which it is meant to stigmatize as rude and mercenary; crew is used in a closely similar sense. A conclave is secret, but of larger numbers, ordinarily, than a cabal, and may have honorable use; as, the conclave of cardinals.

    Synonyms:
    cabal, combination, conclave, confederacy, conspiracy, crew, faction, junto

How to use gang in a sentence?

  1. Detectives James Essig:

    There's just one common theme, I want to get out there, that's a recurring theme that keeps happening, and it has to stop throughout the city, that's gang members; that's guns, multiple guns on the scene, scooters being used, masks; and lastly, unintended targets getting hit. This is unacceptable on our streets in New York City, and it has to stop.

  2. Russell Schultz:
