English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. host

    An army is an organized body of men armed for war, ordinarily considerable in numbers, always independent in organization so far as not to be a constituent part of any other command. Organization, unity, and independence, rather than numbers are the essentials of an army. We speak of the invading army of Cortes or Pizarro, tho either body was contemptible in numbers from a modern military standpoint. We may have a little army, a large army, or a vast army. Host is used for any vast and orderly assemblage; as, the stars are called the heavenly host. Multitude expresses number without order or organization; a multitude of armed men is not an army, but a mob. Legion (from the Latin) and phalanx (from the Greek) are applied by a kind of poetic license to modern forces; the plural legions is preferred to the singular. Military is a general word for land-forces; the military may include all the armed soldiery of a nation, or the term may be applied to any small detached company, as at a fort, in distinction from civilians. Any organized body of men by whom the law or will of a people is executed is a force; the word is a usual term for the police of any locality.

    Synonyms:
    armament, army, array, force, forces, legions, military, multitude, phalanx, soldiers, soldiery, troops

How to use host in a sentence?

  1. Charlie Collier:

    If you have a host and an opening number, that's 15 to 20 minutes you can't use to salute the shows, we will go hostless this year, and I think it will give us more time to honor those shows.

  2. Lena Dunham:

    I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point, i think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault.

  3. Project Veritas:

    People dont know theyre being lied to, but these tapes show that the top-down approach to media, they show Jeff Zucker telling people what to cover, whatnot to cover -- calling [ Giuliani ] a useful idiot there, telling them for political reasons dontcover certain stories, fox News host Sean Hannity, these are the times that try mens souls and I think if you go one direction, you lose your conscience, another direction, you lose your livelihood. But there are brave people like the person we worked with regarding CNN who are willing to be citizen journalists, willing to expose these sorts of things.

  4. Joy Behar:

    McCain said. Behar was apparently inflamed by McCain’s comment. We're talking about Kelly. We're talking about Kelly! We are not talking about abuse right now, don’tsay something like that. McCain attempted to point out that Behar was laughing but the liberal host interrupted.

  5. Peter Ben Embarek:

    Our initial findings suggest that the introduction through an intermediary host species is the most likely pathway and one that will require more studies and more specific, targeted research.
