  1. grand

    Awful should not be used of things which are merely disagreeable or annoying, nor of all that are alarming and terrible, but only of such as bring a solemn awe upon the soul, as in the presence of a superior power; as, the awful hush before the battle. That which is awful arouses an oppressive, that which is august an admiring reverence; we speak of the august presence of a mighty monarch, the awful presence of death. We speak of an exalted station, a grand mountain, an imposing presence, a majestic cathedral, a noble mien, a solemn litany, a stately march, an august assembly, the awful scene of the Judgment Day.

    Synonyms:
    alarming, appalling, august, awful, dire, direful, dread, dreadful, fearful, frightful, horrible, imposing, majestic, noble, portentous, shocking, solemn, stately, terrible, terrific

    Antonyms:
    base, beggarly, commonplace, contemptible, despicable, humble, inferior, lowly, mean, paltry, undignified, vulgar

How to use grand in a sentence?

The hearing will begin as planned on September 4.

    It's never easy to face a Grand Slam final. You can get intimidated by the moment. You can get nervous, too nervous, i have learned that it's a normal match. Once you win one you have the feeling you know how it is. You treat it a little bit easier, let's say. It's never easy but you treat it a little bit easier.

  3. Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews:

    There's nothing quite like the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne and the buzz it creates around our state.

  4. Samuel Adams:

    If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of Almighty God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave.

  5. Jim Courier:

    He has a real shot if he does win Roland Garros of the natural grand slam, there is a lot on the line here, it's going to be awesome to watch.
