English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. gift

    A gift is in the popular, and also in the legal sense that which is voluntarily bestowed without expectation of return or compensation. Gift is now almost always used in the good sense, bribe always in the evil sense to signify payment for a dishonorable service under the semblance of a gift. In Scriptural language gift is often used for bribe. "The king by judgment establisheth the land; but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it." Prov. xxix, 4. A benefaction is a charitable gift, generally of large amount, and viewed as of enduring value, as an endowment for a college. A donation is something, perhaps of great, never of trivial value, given usually on some public ground, as to a cause or to a person representing a cause, but not necessarily of value beyond the immediate present; as, a donation to a pastor. A gratuity is usually something of moderate value and is always given as to an inferior, and as of favor, not of right; as, a gratuity to a waiter. Largess is archaic for a bountiful gratuity, usually to be distributed among many, as among the heralds at ancient tournaments. A present is a gift of friendship, or conciliation, and given as to an equal or a superior; no one's pride is hurt by accepting what is viewed as strictly a present. A boon is a gift that has been desired or craved or perhaps asked, or something freely given that meets some great desire. A grant is commonly considerable in amount and given by public authority; as, a grant of public lands for a college.

    Synonyms:
    benefaction, bequest, boon, bounty, bribe, donation, grant, gratuity, largess, present

    Antonyms:
    compensation, earnings, guerdon, penalty, remuneration, wages

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Ingratitude is thinking nothing of what has been done or given to you by someone else i.e. not feeling bound to show gratitude. I mean, ingratitude is a discreditable lack of gratitude. Yes! you heard me right and that is just what it is. So, you've got to show gratitude to all (everyone and everything) for every bit of kindness, love, care, gift and stuffs like that, which you've already received. And most importantly, never hesitate to show more and more gratitude to God (almighty) who gives you all that you ever need (the four necessities of life which are shelter, food, clothin­g and water) As well, always show gratitude to him (God) even for your life itself. Because, he is the sole giver and taker of every life including yours. Now listen up, you should show gratitude and you've got to resolve to show gratitude to all (everyone and everything). For, until and unless you resolve and learn to show gratitude to everyone and everything, you are an Ingrate and you will remain an Ingrate for life (period). You can say I said so, anyway. ~Emeasoba George
