English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. intercourse

    Conversation (Latin con, with) is, etymologically, an interchange of ideas with some other person or persons. Talk may be wholly one-sided. Many brilliant talkers have been incapable of conversation. There may be intercourse without conversation, as by looks, signs, etc.; communion is of hearts, with or without words; communication is often by writing, and may be uninvited and unreciprocated. Talk may denote the mere utterance of words with little thought; thus, we say idle talk, empty talk, rather than idle or empty conversation. Discourse is now applied chiefly to public addresses. A conference is more formal than a conversation. Dialog denotes ordinarily an artificial or imaginary conversation, generally of two persons, but sometimes of more. A colloquy is indefinite as to number, and generally somewhat informal. Compare BEHAVIOR.

    Synonyms:
    chat, colloquy, communication, communion, confabulation, conference, conversation, converse, dialogue, discourse, parley, talk

    Preposition:
    Conversation with friends; between or among the guests; about a matter.

How to use intercourse in a sentence?

  1. Charles Cooley:

    One who shows signs of mental aberration is, inevitably, perhaps, but cruelly, shut off from familiar, thoughtless intercourse, partly excommunicated; his isolation is unwittingly proclaimed to him on every countenance by curiosity, indifference, aversion, or pity, and in so far as he is human enough to need free and equal communication and feel the lack of it, he suffers pain and loss of a kind and degree which others can only faintly imagine, and for the most part ignore.

  2. Drogo Montague:

    There's a real need for penile prosthesis, but this isn't generally recognized by the public and even some medical professionals, not being able to have intercourse has been shown in numerous studies to cause low self-esteem depression.

  3. Angela Carter:

    It is far easier for a woman to lead a blameless life than it is for a man; all she has to do is to avoid sexual intercourse like the plague.

  4. Judge James Burke:

    Lack of consent results from forcible compulsion or circumstances under which at the time of the act of intercourse, the complainant clearly expressed that she did not consent to engage in such act and a reasonable person in the defendant's situation would have understood the complainant's words and acts as an expression of lack of consent to such act under all the circumstances.

  5. David Kim:

    Sex is n’t a cause of UTI’s, but the relative odds of a UTI occurring increase by a factor of 60 during the 48 hours after sexual intercourse.
