English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. home

    Abode, dwelling, and habitation are used with little difference of meaning to denote the place where one habitually lives; abode and habitation belong to the poetic or elevated style. Even dwelling is not used in familiar speech; a person says "my house," "my home," or more formally "my residence." Home, from the Anglo-Saxon, denoting originally a dwelling, came to mean an endeared dwelling as the scene of domestic love and happy and cherished family life, a sense to which there is an increasing tendency to restrict the word — desirably so, since we have other words to denote the mere dwelling-place; we say "The wretched tenement could not be called home," or "The humble cabin was dear to him as the home of his childhood."

    Home's not merely four square walls,
    Tho with pictures hung and gilded;
    Home is where affection calls —
    Where its shrine the heart has builded.

    Thus the word comes to signify any place of rest and peace, and especially heaven, as the soul's peaceful and eternal dwelling-place.

    Synonyms:
    abode, domicil, dwelling, fireside, habitation, hearth, hearthstone, house, ingleside, residence

How to use home in a sentence?

  1. Saoirse Ronan:

    Oh God, I'm so excited. You see, I watched the Oscars every year at home on an Irish channel and the reception was fuzzy because we were in the country. Every now and then, it would be: 'The winner for best actor is…' and then the screen would go all grey. It's kind of surreal that I'm actually going to be there this year.

  2. Alfiee Breland-Noble:

    Try to work within your bandwidth, using things that are accessible, if Alfiee Breland-Noble're going to meditate, and it's like eight people in a two-bedroom home, maybe Alfiee Breland-Noble have to literally go into the bathroom and sit there for five minutes with Alfiee Breland-Noble headphones on.

  3. Lee Hopley:

    Concerns about world trade growth and the strength of demand from both developed and emerging markets have become more prominent ... since our last report, closer to home, the domestic market is also looking considerably less supportive than has been the case in recent years.

  4. Jon Ritchart:

    I can feed two people at home for a month for what it costs me to eat in Williston for a week, i can't afford to stay here.

  5. Xavier Becerra:

    Governor Brown has presented me with an opportunity I cannot refuse -- to serve as Attorney General of my home state.
