English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. notion

    Idea is in Greek a form or an image. The word signified in early philosophical use the archetype or primal image which the Platonic philosophy supposed to be the model or pattern that existing objects imperfectly embody. This high sense has nearly disappeared from the word idea, and has been largely appropriated by ideal, tho something of the original meaning still appears when in theological or philosophical language we speak of the ideas of God. The present popular use of idea makes it to signify any product of mental apprehension or activity, considered as an object of knowledge or thought; this coincides with the primitive sense at but a single point — that an idea is mental as opposed to anything substantial or physical; thus, almost any mental product, as a belief, conception, design, opinion, etc., may now be called an idea. Compare FANCY; IDEAL.

    Synonyms:
    apprehension, archetype, belief, conceit, concept, conception, design, fancy, fantasy, idea, ideal, image, imagination, impression, judgment, model, opinion, pattern, plan, purpose, sentiment, supposition, theory, thought

    Antonyms:
    actuality, fact, reality, substance

How to use notion in a sentence?

  1. Corey Lewandowski:

    This notion that Ray Tweedie have to have an event that has seven people show up at it to call it a success in New Hampshire, I think, is somewhat dated and may be the model that the candidates who can't fill rooms use.

  2. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar:

    Caste is not a physical object like a wall of bricks or a line of barbed wire which prevents the Hindus from Co-mingling and which has, therefore, to be pulled down. Caste is a notion; it is a state of the mind.

  3. Paul Ingram:

    A moment's thought shows that man's feeling of isolation has no foundation, biologically or sociologically. We grow out of the Universe, we are an expression of it. The iron in our blood comes from the high temperature fusion of stars. We constantly interact with our environment. The force of gravity keeps our feet upon the earth and has a vital effect upon our metabolism. The air we breathe comes form the seas and the leaves, and the sun allows the process to take place. Society gives us all that makes us human our culture, our symbols, our concepts and our values. Without society, the notion of the individual would have no meaning.

  4. Jason Chaffetz:

    I see no data to support the notion that Gen. Flynn complied with the law.

  5. Amnesty International:

    The notion that Raif Badawi must be allowed to heal so that he can suffer this cruel punishment again and again is macabre and outrageous.
