English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. meter

    Euphony is agreeable linguistic sound, however produced; meter, measure, and rhythm denote agreeable succession of sounds in the utterance of connected words; euphony may apply to a single word or even a single syllable; the other words apply to lines, sentences, paragraphs, etc.; rhythm and meter may be produced by accent only, as in English, or by accent and quantity combined, as in Greek or Italian; rhythm or measure may apply either to prose or to poetry, or to music, dancing, etc.; meter is more precise than rhythm, applies only to poetry, and denotes a measured rhythm with regular divisions into verses, stanzas, strophes, etc. A verse is strictly a metrical line, but the word is often used as synonymous with stanza. Verse, in the general sense, denotes metrical writing without reference to the thought involved; as, prose and verse. Compare MELODY; POETRY.

    Synonyms:
    euphony, measure, rhythm, verse

How to use meter in a sentence?

  1. Joe Biden:

    This was the diving board area, and I was one of the guards, and they werent allowed to -- it was a 3-meter board. And if you fell off sideways, you landed on the damn, er, darn cement over there.

  2. Steve Prefontaine:

    A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more. Nobody is going to win a 5,000 meter race after running an easy 2 miles. Not with me. If I lose forcing the pace all the way, well, at least I can live with myself.

  3. Frederic Grappe:

    This figure means little because we don't know whether it's the power he produced for 20 or 40 minutes. And you usually lose one Watt per minute after 20 minutes, if your power meter is well calibrated, you have landmarks.

  4. Brendan McLeod:

    We think we can expect to do (the 100-meter race) in about a minute and a half.

  5. Frankie Dettori:

    I passed the 200 (meter mark) and I was a spent force. I think the ground had a lot to do with it.
