English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. just

    But ranges from the faintest contrast to absolute negation; as, I am willing to go, but (on the other hand) content to stay; he is not an honest man, but (on the contrary) a villain. The contrast may be with a silent thought; as, but let us go (it being understood that we might stay longer). In restrictive use, except and excepting are slightly more emphatic than but; we say, no injury but a scratch; or, no injury except some painful bruises. Such expressions as "words are but breath" (nothing but) may be referred to the restrictive use by ellipsis. So may the use of but in the sense of unless; as, "it never rains but it pours." To the same head must be referred the conditional use; as, "you may go, but with your father's consent" (i. e., "provided you have," "except that you must have," etc.). "Doubt but" is now less used than the more logical "doubt that." But never becomes a full synonym for and; and adds something like, but adds something different; "brave and tender" implies that tenderness is natural to the brave; "brave but tender" implies that bravery and tenderness are rarely combined. For the concessive use, compare NOTWITHSTANDING.

    Synonyms:
    and, barely, besides, but, except, further, however, merely, moreover, nevertheless, notwithstanding, notwithstanding, only, provided, save, still, that, tho, unless, yet

How to use just in a sentence?

  1. Theodore Roosevelt:

    Liar' is just as ugly a word as 'thief,' because it implies the presence of just as ugly a sin in one case as in the other. If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law.

  2. Josh Hedges/Zuffa:

    You guys have a job to do, and I ’m not criticizing you guys in particular – I kinda am, I kinda am, but just remember this, I could do your job. I could do your job. You could never do my job.

  3. Haylie Duff:

    There is a lot of other thoughts about it. But, you know, she is a beautiful girl, i am just hoping my dad does not walk by the newsstands.

  4. Mateo Langford:

    I'm not going anywhere, bad things happen in every corner of the world, including in the United States. We just can't run away.

  5. Ashley Conn:

    They know police as their heroes and their protectors and for one of them to pass like that is really just kind of confusing.
