English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. narrative

    History is a systematic record of past events. Annals and chronicles relate events with little regard to their relative importance, and with complete subserviency to their succession in time. Annals are yearly records; chronicles follow the order of time. Both necessarily lack emphasis, selection, and perspective. Archives are public records, which may be annals, or chronicles, or deeds of property, etc. Memoirs generally record the lives of individuals or facts pertaining to individual lives. A biography is distinctively a written account of one person's life and actions; an autobiography is a biography written by the person whose life it records. Annals, archives, chronicles, biographies, and memoirs and other records furnish the materials of history. History recounts events with careful attention to their importance, their mutual relations, their causes and consequences, selecting and grouping events on the ground of interest or importance. History is usually applied to such an account of events affecting communities and nations, tho sometimes we speak of the history of a single eminent life. Compare RECORD.

How to use narrative in a sentence?

  1. Rick Perry:

    Today's ruling ends the false narrative that environmental protection can only be achieved through one-size-fits-all federal mandates and at the expense of economic growth - a premise that has been debunked in states like Texas, where smart regulations have proven economic opportunity and environmental protection are not mutually exclusive.

  2. Pat Toomey:

    When we see protesters out in the streets, making outrageous statements, slandering our police officers, propagating absurd and false narrative about these brave men and women who protect us, I can understand how that can be demoralizing for the police officers who have to watch that happen, but I want you to know: Those protesters don't speak for America.

  3. Jeb Bush:

    The idea that a candidate would think he can make political hay, to create ... a new narrative on the reality of how he led is a joke, it shows a lack of seriousness.

  4. Kelly Dittmar:

    She does need to be careful about her surrogates and the people who are talking for her. We don't want it to be [that] young women don't know what they are talking about; that's not fair, but that's the generational divide and it's led to creating a narrative about who is more feminist, Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton. Well that all depends on how you define feminism.

  5. Elijah Cummings:

    It is revealing that the Republicans -- yet again -- are leaking cherry-picked excerpts of documents to support their preconceived political narrative without allowing committee members to even see their conclusions or vote on them first, by leaking information to reporters on condition that they not disclose it to Democrats, Republicans are intentionally bypassing the normal congressional vetting process designed to distinguish fact from fiction.
