English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. incinerate

    To burn is to subject to the action of fire, or of intense heat so as to effect either partial change or complete combustion; as, to burn wood in the fire; to burn one's hand on a hot stove; the sun burns the face. One brands with a hot iron, but cauterizes with some corrosive substance, as silver nitrate. Cremate is now used specifically for consuming a dead body by intense heat. To incinerate is to reduce to ashes; the sense differs little from that of cremate, but it is in less popular use. To kindle is to set on fire, as if with a candle; ignite is the more learned and scientific word for the same thing, extending even to the heating of metals to a state of incandescence without burning. To scorch and to singe are superficial, and to char usually so. Both kindle and burn have an extensive figurative use; as, to kindle strife; to burn with wrath, love, devotion, curiosity. Compare LIGHT.

    Synonyms:
    blaze, brand, burn, cauterize, char, consume, cremate, flame, flash, ignite, kindle, scorch, set fire to, set on fire, singe

    Antonyms:
    cool, extinguish, put out, smother, stifle, subdue

    Preposition:
    To burn in the fire, burn with fire; burn to the ground, burn to ashes; burn through the skin, or the roof; burn into the soil, etc.

How to use incinerate in a sentence?

  1. President Biden:

    These burn pits that incinerate waste, the waste of war, medical and hazardous material, jet fuel and so much more, and they come home, many of the fittest and best-trained warriors in the world, never the same, headaches, numbness, dizziness, a cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin.
