English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. intimation

    A suggestion (Latin sub, under, and gero, bring) brings something before the mind less directly than by formal or explicit statement, as by a partial statement, an incidental allusion, an illustration, a question, or the like. Suggestion is often used of an unobtrusive statement of one's views or wishes to another, leaving consideration and any consequent action entirely to his judgment, and is hence, in many cases, the most respectful way in which one can convey his views to a superior or a stranger. A suggestion may be given unintentionally, and even unconsciously, as when we say an author has "a suggestive style." An intimation is a suggestion in brief utterance, or sometimes by significant act, gesture, or token, of one's meaning or wishes; in the latter case it is often the act of a superior; as, God in his providence gives us intimations of his will. A hint is still more limited in expression, and is always covert, but frequently with good intent; as, to give one a hint of danger or of opportunity. Insinuation and innuendo are used in the bad sense; an insinuation is a covert or partly veiled injurious utterance, sometimes to the very person attacked; an innuendo is commonly secret as well as sly, as if pointing one out by a significant nod (Latin in, in, to, and nuo, nod).

    Synonyms:
    hint, implication, innuendo, insinuation, suggestion

How to use intimation in a sentence?

  1. Benjamin Netanyahu:

    Ever wonder what fake news is? Last week, CNN, The New York Times and Al Jazeera reported that Hamas now accepts the Palestinian state along the 1967 lines. The New York Times headline called this ‘moderation,’ the intimation is that Hamas now accepts the state of Israel. This is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas statement says Israel has no right to exist.

  2. Amanda Rives:

    We are seeing and hearing that increasing numbers of girls are getting married and coupled to seek protection from gang violence and intimation from gangs, being in a couple with a gang member may give the girl and her family some level of protection from one gang, but may leave them more vulnerable to rival gangs.

  3. Benjamin Netanyahu:

    The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the state of Israel. This is a complete distortion of the truth. The new Hamas statement says Israel has no right to exist.

  4. André Breton:

    To reduce the imagination to a state of slavery --even though it would mean the elimination of what is commonly called happiness --is to betray all sense of absolute justice within oneself. Imagination alone offers me some intimation of what can be.
