English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. hide

    Hide is the general term, including all the rest, signifying to put out of sight or beyond ready observation or approach; a thing may be hidden by intention, by accident, or by the imperfection of the faculties of the one from whom it is hidden; in their games, children hide the slipper, or hide themselves from each other; a man unconsciously hides a picture from another by standing before it, or hides a thing from himself by laying something else over it. Even an unconscious object may hide another; as, a cloud hides the sun, or a building hides some part of the prospect by intervening between it and the observer's position. As an act of persons, to conceal is always intentional; one may hide his face in anger, grief, or abstraction; he conceals his face when he fears recognition. A house is hidden by foliage; the bird's nest is artfully concealed. Secrete is a stronger word than conceal, and is used chiefly of such material objects as may be separated from the person, or from their ordinary surroundings, and put in unlooked-for places; a man conceals a scar on his face, but does not secrete it; a thief secretes stolen goods; an officer may also be said to secrete himself to watch the thief. A thing is covered by putting something over or around it, whether by accident or design; it is screened by putting something before it, always with some purpose of protection from observation, inconvenience, attack, censure, etc. In the figurative use, a person may hide honorable feelings; he conceals an evil or hostile intent. Anything which is effectually covered and hidden under any mass or accumulation is buried. Money is buried in the ground; a body is buried in the sea; a paper is buried under other documents. Whatever is buried is hidden or concealed; but there are many ways of hiding or concealing a thing without burying it. So a person may be covered with wraps, and not buried under them. Bury may be used of any object, entomb and inter only of a dead body. Figuratively, one may be said to be buried in business, in study, etc. Compare IMMERSE; PALLIATE.

    Synonyms:
    bury, cloak, conceal, cover, disguise, dissemble, entomb, inter, mask, overwhelm, screen, secrete, suppress, veil

    Antonyms:
    admit, advertise, avow, betray, confess, disclose, discover, disinter, divulge, exhibit, exhume, expose, lay bare, lay open, make known, reveal, manifest, promulgate, publish, raise, show, tell, uncover, unmask, unveil

How to use hide in a sentence?

  1. Emily Brooke:

    It tackles the most common cause of fatality, which is the blind spot. According to Emily Brooke, 79 percent of bicycles involved in crashes are traveling straight ahead when a vehicle turns into them. Emily Brooke said Emily Brooke chose the 20-foot distance because it's half the length of a bus, and Emily Brooke wanted the laser image to be green because the human eye is most sensitive to green light. TINY, LENS-FREE CAMERA COULD HIDE IN CLOTHES, GLASSES Drivers just see it and all they need to do is not turn, not react, not turn into the cyclist or not pull out, people see it and go, ‘ What is that ? ’ And that's perfect, as long as they don't make that turn, which can be potentially fatal …. Emily Brooke said The Laserlight alerts not only drivers, but pedestrians, too, about oncoming bikes. One of the most obvious cases.

    Written answers will not provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross examine The Whistleblower.

Last week's testimony raised even more concerns about the anonymous whistleblower and our need to hear from Mark Zaid and Adam Schiff, in person.

    We crossed the Channel before Airbus. The only way I could do this was to hide and do it with the utmost discretion.

  5. Jamal Robinson:

    I told them that things hadn’t worked out as I thought and that we didn’t have an immediate solution but that we were working on one. They saw that we weren’t trying to hide anything.
