English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. head

    A topic (Greek topos, place) is a head of discourse. Since a topic for discussion is often stated in the form of a question, question has come to be extensively used to denote a debatable topic, especially of a practical nature — an issue; as, the labor question; the temperance question. In deliberative assemblies a proposition presented or moved for acceptance is called a motion, and such a motion or other matter for consideration is known as the question, since it is or may be stated in interrogative form to be answered by each member with a vote of "aye" or "no;" a member is required to speak to the question; the chairman puts the question. In speaking or writing the general subject or theme may be termed the topic, tho it is more usual to apply the latter term to the subordinate divisions, points, or heads of discourse; as, to enlarge on this topic would carry me too far from my subject; a pleasant drive will suggest many topics for conversation.

    Synonyms:
    division, issue, matter, motion, point, proposition, question, subject, theme, topic

How to use head in a sentence?

  1. Aussie Paralympian Liesl Tesch:

    Aussie Paralympian was absolutely horrific, i can see Aussie Paralympian clear as day in my own head... Aussie Paralympian was Aussie Paralympian.

  2. Lara Garey:

    I tell people all the time it’s a death wish, for sure, it takes your breath away. Everything you thought is completely turned on its head – in a moment we went from this family that had a man-child of a son and was hoping he would get out of high school and go to college, and Tom and I would retire and enjoy our lives and just enjoy the future – to being told you have ALS, and it takes that away from you.

  3. Christopher Cornell:

    What would I have done? I would have took my gun, I would have put it to Obama's head and I would have pulled the trigger, then I would have released more bullets on the Senate and the House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli Embassy and various other buildings full of kafir (a Muslim term for infidel) who want to wage war against us Muslims and shed our blood. That's what would happen.

  4. Henry David Thoreau:

    Cultivate the habit of early rising. It is unwise to keep the head long on a level with the feet.

  5. Kai Pfaffenbach:

    The semi-finals is a warm up also for photographers, i was free to play around and I thought I would try a motion blur ... I saw him running ... The moment he turned his head I thought the picture was ruined as it would be too shaky but it just happened ... and overnight it became 'the' picture.
