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. Rachel Lindsay:

    He wasn’t defending Rachael, he repeated over and over during the 15-minute segment in which he essentially did just that. If I had gone to that party, I asked him, what wouldIrepresent? He told me that 50 million people had attended a party like this, i maintained that attending such a party was not a good look, to which he responded, ‘Is it not a good look in 2018, or is it not a good look in 2021?’ As if things couldn’t have been considered racist in 2018. He called for sympathy for ‘this poor girl, Rachael.’ He said all this with a passion I had never seen him assert. And neither, I think, had America. We had only seen Chris Harrison perform as a host; this was like catching him with a hot mic.

  2. Brendan McLeod:

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

  3. Ben Crump:

    In many ways it is worse than Eric Garner because they got their knee on his neck and he is begging, pleading, not one minute... but eight minutes begging them to let him breathe, we cant breathe again in 2020.

  4. Kenneth Gross:

    He's making money off the campaign, presumably, as profit for these companies that are servicing the campaign, whether it's a vineyard, you know, selling wine to the campaign, or whether it's hotels, or selling space at Mar-a-Lago, or the airline, now he may promote that as part of his business acumen: ‘Look, I'm a candidate plus I'm making money.’ But that can come back to haunt, as well; I mean, you know, people may say, ‘Wait a minute, it looks like too much self-dealing here.’.

  5. Daniel Mendoza:

    I wasn’t going to come, but at the last minute this morning I was like, you know what, I’m sure they’d appreciate if I went, it was touching. It kind of grounded me there.
