English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. likeness

    Analogy is specifically a resemblance of relations; a resemblance that may be reasoned from, so that from the likeness in certain respects we may infer that other and perhaps deeper relations exist. Affinity is a mutual attraction with or without seeming likeness; as, the affinity of iron for oxygen. Coincidence is complete agreement in some one or more respects; there may be a coincidence in time of most dissimilar events. Parity of reasoning is said of an argument equally conclusive on subjects not strictly analogous. Similitude is a rhetorical comparison of one thing to another with which it has some points in common. Resemblance and similarity are external or superficial, and may involve no deeper relation; as, the resemblance of a cloud to a distant mountain. Compare ALLEGORY.

How to use likeness in a sentence?

  1. Virginia Woolf:

    It would be a thousand pities if women wrote like men, or lived like men, or looked like men, for if two sexes are quite inadequate, considering the vastness and variety of the world, how should we manage with one only? Ought not education to bring out and fortify the differences rather than the similarities? For we have too much likeness as it is, and if an explorer should come back and bring word of other sexes looking through the branches of other trees at other skies, nothing would be of greater service to humanity; and we should have the immense pleasure into the bargain of watching Professor X rush for his measuring-rods to prove himself superior.

  2. Erin Perrine:

    We have publicly condemned any group that misuses President Trump's likeness, or otherwise implies an affiliation with Donald Trump reelection campaign, in order to confuse people and mislead donors, it is dishonest to trick people into thinking they are directly supporting the President's re-election when they are not.

  3. Plato:

    The greatest penalty of evildoing - namely, to grow into the likeness of bad men.

  4. Deshawn Yeldell:
