English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. observation

    A remark is a saying or brief statement, oral or written, commonly made without much premeditation; a comment is an explanatory or critical remark, as upon some passage in a literary work or some act or speech in common life. A note is something to call attention, hence a brief written statement; in correspondence, a note is briefer than a letter. A note upon some passage in a book is briefer and less elaborate than a comment. Annotations are especially brief notes, commonly marginal, and closely following the text. Comments, observations, or remarks may be oral or written, comments being oftenest written, and remarks oftenest oral. An observation is properly the result of fixed attention and reflection; a remark may be the suggestion of the instant. Remarks are more informal than a speech.

    Synonyms:
    annotation, comment, note, remark, utterance

How to use observation in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We often hear the phrases like "Universe is telling me with signs" or "karma is calling" or "kismet making connection" or "serendipity" or "chance" or"coincidence" and so on, whenever people refer to an unexpected life-changing event or a major scientific breakthrough that happened as an unintended consequence of otherwise normal course of actions. As a Scientist, I do think that any new invention doesn't happen by chance alone, as it may appear at the outset. Deeper analysis always reveals that any notable invention is almost alwaysa result of the synergistic meeting of statistical probability with well planned strategy, i. e. it's a combination of uncertainty with certainty that occurs at right time in right place. As Louis Pasteur said it 'Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.' meaning 'In the field of observations, chance favors theprepared mind.' So, keep your mind alert and well prepared at all times, because you never know when Serendipity would visit you, or when Universe would tap on your shoulder to give you the signs. Only your prepared mind would enable you to welcome wonderful Serendipity and understand the subtle signs sent to you by Universe.

  2. The Turkish official:

  3. Vasant Shinde:

  4. Yxstian Gutierrez:

    A worker in one of Amazons fulfillment centers in Moreno Valley has tested positive for Covid-19, it is not known if the worker lives in the City of Moreno Valley because everyones personal medical information is considered private. The worker is undergoing treatment, and several co-workers have been directed to self-quarantine and are under observation by health officials.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.
