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.

    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. Israel Hershkovitz:

    The co-existence of these two populations in a confined geographic region at the same time that genetic models predict interbreeding promotes the notion that interbreeding may have occurred in the Levant region.

  2. Ben Crump:

    It further demonstrates this notion of two Americas, because I have never seen when a Black person is on trial for murder anybody cares about whether or not they can get a fair trial or what people are saying in public.

  3. Alan Barth:

    The notion that the church, the press, and the universities should serve the state is essentially a Communist notion. In a free society these institutions must be wholly free -- which is to say that their function is to serve as checks upon the state.

  4. Mohamed El-Erian:

    I believe that 'patient' is coming out, but we're going to see another round of quote 'linguistic gymnastics,' i wouldn't be surprised if this notion of the Fed having to be sufficiently confident about inflation creeps in as a way of keeping markets from rushing to the terminal value.

  5. Judy Weisman:

    It's just such a horrific notion to think what the people down in the below decks, the people sleeping down there must have gone through, how terrifying.
