English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. minute

    That is minute which is of exceedingly limited dimensions, as a grain of dust, or which attends to matters of exceedingly slight amount or apparent importance; as, a minute account; minute observation. That which is broken up into minute particles is said to be comminuted; things may be termed fine which would not be termed comminuted; as, fine sand; fine gravel; but, in using the adverb, we say a substance is finely comminuted, comminuted referring more to the process, fine to the result. An account extended to very minute particulars is circumstantial, detailed, particular; an examination so extended is critical, exact, precise. Compare FINE.

How to use minute in a sentence?

  1. Manash Goswami:

    People were like 'wait a minute, OK this is a great announcement but has anything changed? Not really. Let's sell the news'.

  2. Alexis de Tocqueville:

    It [government] covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting: such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.

  3. Nelson Peltz:

    I think the prospects for a last-minute settlement are very dim.

  4. Trump Jr.:

    I've been out hearing the left talking about all these things, fascism, Nazism on the right, and when you look at the actual history of how these things evolved, and when you actually look at that platform versus the platform of the modern left, you say wait a minute, those two are really heavily aligned and, frankly, contrary to the right.

  5. John Stephenson:

    The nagging sense is why are we hearing about this at the last minute and given that we're hearing about it at the last minute, what else aren't they telling us.
