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. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek:

    I have seen so many silly apps where the kid isn't accomplishing anything meaningful, but there are some options where children can become musical composers, artists and designers and write your own narrative. How wonderful is it to let them be creative and explorers ? It's meaningful to kids because it lets them have their own voice.

  2. Mark Campanale:

    We weren’t thinking of a political narrative at all, we said there are risks riddled across the system, and that the answer to the carbon bubble was to address the regulatory challenges.

  3. Andrew Stroth:

    We've never believed the narrative given by the police in this case.

  4. Dr John:

    This has been driven partly by constant media demands for new and spectacular stories about the monument, and partly by the archaeological emphasis on impact, so we see an obsession with narrative at the expense of evidence, and a host of newly manufactured myths which are even more wacky than the old ones. It’s time for a cool reassessment.

  5. George Kent:

    It's a constant block of everything President Trump is trying to do. OK, Robert Mueller didn't get Robert Mueller. Other people didn't get Robert Mueller. Now we need to find another narrative. I think everyone's numb to it.
