English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. multitude

    An army is an organized body of men armed for war, ordinarily considerable in numbers, always independent in organization so far as not to be a constituent part of any other command. Organization, unity, and independence, rather than numbers are the essentials of an army. We speak of the invading army of Cortes or Pizarro, tho either body was contemptible in numbers from a modern military standpoint. We may have a little army, a large army, or a vast army. Host is used for any vast and orderly assemblage; as, the stars are called the heavenly host. Multitude expresses number without order or organization; a multitude of armed men is not an army, but a mob. Legion (from the Latin) and phalanx (from the Greek) are applied by a kind of poetic license to modern forces; the plural legions is preferred to the singular. Military is a general word for land-forces; the military may include all the armed soldiery of a nation, or the term may be applied to any small detached company, as at a fort, in distinction from civilians. Any organized body of men by whom the law or will of a people is executed is a force; the word is a usual term for the police of any locality.

    armament, army, array, force, forces, host, legions, military, phalanx, soldiers, soldiery, troops

How to use multitude in a sentence?

  1. Auguste Rodin:

    There is a continual exchange of ideas between all minds of a generation. Journalists, popular novelists, illustrators, and cartoonists adapt the truths discovered by the powerful intellects for the multitude. It is like a spiritual flood, like a gush that pours into multiple cascades until it forms the great moving sheet of water that stands for the mentality of a period.

  2. Chris Lehane:

    They can have fun with this, this is a different age and there are a multitude of outlets that are going to have their versions with fairly obvious common denominators when it comes to the caricature -- which is why turning what could be fodder for comedy outlets into a strength is important.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Appreciation gives rise to motivation/multiplication. Let's take this as a case study. When Jesus Christ was faced with the task of feeding a multitude. The scripture says that he (Jesus Christ) first and foremost gave thanks to God. And just because he gave thanks to God. God was motivated to multiply the five loaves of bread/two fishes which he already had. Now that's why he (Jesus Christ) miraclously fed/overfed at a time 5,000 men excluding women and children, scripture reference (Mattew 14 and verse 17 through 21). Anyway, that evidently proves, appreciation truly gives rise to motivation which eventually leads to multiplication. Have you been unappreciative to God/your fellow humans all these while? If YES then, you've got to learn to appreciate your fellow humans. But most importantly, do appreciate God all the time/way even in time of scarcity/insufficiency of resources like money/food stuffs. Because if you dare to appreciate him (God) at all times. Then, he will be motivated to multiply whatever you have until you are wholly gratified/satisfied.

  4. Tyron Edwards:

    Sin with the multitude, and your responsibility and guilt are as great and as truly personal, as if you alone had done the wrong.

  5. Vikrant Parsai:

    Your attitude is a multitude of aptitude and rectitude which decides your altitude in plenitude.
