English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. number

    Number is the generic term. To count is to number one by one. To calculate is to use more complicated processes, as multiplication, division, etc., more rapid but not less exact. Compute allows more of the element of probability, which is still more strongly expressed by estimate. We compute the slain in a great war from the number known to have fallen in certain great battles; compute refers to the present or the past, estimate more frequently to the future; as, to estimate the cost of a proposed building. To enumerate is to mention item by item; as, to enumerate one's grievances. To rate is to estimate by comparison, as if the object were one of a series. We count upon a desired future; we do not count upon the undesired. As applied to the present, we reckon or count a thing precious or worthless. Compare ESTEEM.

    Synonyms:
    account, calculate, cast, compute, consider, count, deem, enumerate, estimate, rate, reckon, sum up

    Preposition:
    It is vain to calculate on or upon an uncertain result.

How to use number in a sentence?

  1. Edward Alden:

    We have seen a significant decline in illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States and it's clear that the Border enforcement build up has been a big reason why that decline has been as sharp as it has been, our estimates suggest that the number of successful illegal entries has fallen from extremely high numbers – more than 3 million annually up to the mid-2000s– to much, much smaller numbers, about 250,000 last year. Keep in mind that these numbers do not represent individuals who came to stay in the United States – these are the total number of illegal border crossings.

  2. Hubert Minnis:

    We expect that this number will increase.

  3. David Mooney:
