English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. inborn

    Inherent signifies permanently united as an element or original quality, naturally existent or incorporated in something so as to have become an integral part. Immanent is a philosophic word, to denote that which dwells in or pervades any substance or spirit without necessarily being a part of it, and without reference to any working out (compare SUBJECTIVE). That which is inherent is an inseparable part of that in which it inheres, and is usually thought of with reference to some outworking or effect; as, an inherent difficulty. God is said to be immanent (not inherent) in the universe. Frequently intrinsic and inherent can be interchanged, but inherent applies to qualities, while intrinsic applies to essence, so that to speak of intrinsic excellence conveys higher praise than if we say inherent excellence. Inherent and intrinsic may be said of persons or things; congenital, inborn, inbred, innate, apply to living beings. Congenital is frequent in medical and legal use with special application to defects; as, congenital idiocy. Innate and inborn are almost identical, but innate is preferred in philosophic use, as when we speak of innate ideas; that which is inborn, congenital, or innate may be original with the individual, but that which is inbred is inherited. Ingrained signifies dyed in the grain, and denotes that which is deeply wrought into substance or character.

How to use inborn in a sentence?

  1. Sir Karl Popper:

    There is an almost universal tendency, perhaps an inborn tendency, to suspect the good faith of a man who holds opinions that differ from our own opinions... It obviously endangers the freedom and the objectivity of our discussion if we attack a person instead of attacking an opinion or, more precisely, a theory.

  2. Prashant Agarwal:

    Do you know greatness is not an inborn talent? Yes, It is not an inborn talent, people are not born with all those virtues which made them great. It only comes from inner desire, grit, and determination to accomplish extraordinary things, which makes them great. It commences from setting a goal, chalking out plans for its fulfillment, and giving your best to attain and last but not the least, is your belief and your optimistic nature. You can’t achieve success overnight. So, never be afraid of taking risks and embracing failure. You have to pour loads of effort and incessant hard work to reach a stage you would have always dreamt of. Our history is profused with a plethora of instances of great men and women who inspire us to touch the sky. Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Thomas Edison, and many others have proved that you can do anything you put your mind to and become great.

  3. Deshawn Yeldell:

    A non-human life form with power over human life; gave them words of wisdom, afterwards there came those who were inborn with likeness, who will speak and has Spoken the languages of wisdom, Still they live Unidentified in the eyes of humankind bringing the spirit of hope, yet whenever they leave this world it shall always be so much sorrow. -MillYentei

  4. Martin Dresler:

    These really incredible memory feats... are not some form of inborn talent. It's really just training.

  5. STOOLarts KONCEPT:
