English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. imposition

    Deceit is the habit, deception the act; guile applies to the disposition out of which deceit and deception grow, and also to their actual practise. A lie, lying, or falsehood, is the uttering of what one knows to be false with intent to deceive. The novel or drama is not a lie, because not meant to deceive; the ancient teaching that the earth was flat was not a lie, because not then known to be false. Untruth is more than lack of accuracy, implying always lack of veracity; but it is a somewhat milder and more dignified word than lie. Falsehood and lying are in utterance; deceit and deception may be merely in act or implication. Deception may be innocent, and even unintentional, as in the case of an optical illusion; deceit always involves injurious intent. Craft and cunning have not necessarily any moral quality; they are common traits of animals, but stand rather low in the human scale. Duplicity is the habitual speaking or acting with intent to appear to mean what one does not. Dissimulation is rather a concealing of what is than a pretense of what is not. Finesse is simply an adroit and delicate management of a matter for one's own side, not necessarily involving deceit. Compare ARTIFICE; FICTION; FRAUD; HYPOCRISY.

    Synonyms:
    craft, cunning, deceit, deceitfulness, deception, delusion, dissimulation, double-dealing, duplicity, fabrication, falsehood, finesse, fraud, guile, hypocrisy, lie, lying, prevarication, trickery, untruth

    Antonyms:
    candor, fair dealing, frankness, guilelessness, honesty, openness, simplicity, sincerity, truth, veracity

How to use imposition in a sentence?

  1. Julian Sanchez:

    There’s plenty of scaremongering around steps broadband providers could take in the absence of neutrality regulation —blocking off certain sites, or charging extra fees to access certain services —but not a ton of reason to think they woulddo these things, which would antagonize customers, be technically tricky to enforce against sophisticated users, and invite the re-imposition of regulations, what’s more realistic is the introduction of plans that provide higher speeds for specific bandwidth-intensive services.

  2. Mary Ann Hinsdale:
