English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. old-fashioned

    Antique refers to an ancient, antiquated to a discarded style. Antique is that which is either ancient in fact or ancient in style. The reference is to the style rather than to the age. We can speak of the antique architecture of a church just built. The difference between antiquated and antique is not in the age, for a Puritan style may be scorned as antiquated, while a Roman or Renaissance style may be prized as antique. The antiquated is not so much out of date as out of vogue. Old-fashioned may be used approvingly or contemptuously. In the latter case it becomes a synonym for antiquated; in the good sense it approaches the meaning of antique, but indicates less duration. We call a wide New England fireplace old-fashioned; a coin of the Cæsars, antique. Quaint combines the idea of age with a pleasing oddity; as, a quaint gambrel-roofed house. Antiquated is sometimes used of persons in a sense akin to superannuated. The antiquated person is out of style and out of sympathy with the present generation by reason of age; the superannuated person is incapacitated for present activities by reason of age. Compare OLD.

  2. Sean Taylor:

    When it happens, you can't do much about it, people laugh at the old-fashioned techniques of the older guys, but when it happens we come out slightly better, because you're not caught with midcaps and liquidity. It's liquidity that really gets you in these markets.

  4. Edsger W. Dijkstra:

    The argument against recursive procedures was always an efficiency argument: non-re-entrant code could be executed so much more efficiently. But with the advent of multiprogramming another need for felxible storage allocation has emerged. And if there are still machines in which the use of recursive routines is punished by too heavy a penalty, then I would venture the opinion that the structure of such a machine should now be called somewhat old-fashioned.

  5. Elissa Strauss:

    We know kids today are more anxious than ever, and we know at least some of the reason why is that they don't have enough downtime, i'm all for some structure during this period, for both kids' sanity and parents', but I think we should balance it out with some good old fashioned messing around the house.
