English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. on the alert

    Vigilant implies more sustained activity and more intelligent volition than alert; one may be habitually alert by reason of native quickness of perception and thought, or one may be momentarily alert under some excitement or expectancy; one who is vigilant is so with thoughtful purpose. One is vigilant against danger or harm; he may be alert or watchful for good as well as against evil; he is wary in view of suspected stratagem, trickery, or treachery. A person may be wakeful because of some merely physical excitement or excitability, as through insomnia; yet he may be utterly careless and negligent in his wakefulness, the reverse of watchful; a person who is truly watchful must keep himself wakeful while on watch, in which case wakeful has something of mental quality. Watchful, from the Saxon, and vigilant, from the Latin, are almost exact equivalents; but vigilant has somewhat more of sharp definiteness and somewhat more suggestion of volition; one may be habitually watchful; one is vigilant of set purpose and for direct cause, as in the presence of an enemy. Compare ALERT.

How to use on the alert in a sentence?

  1. Damian Real:

    Basically what it does is that it has a central part, LED lights which are lit all the time. When the cyclist moves to the left it activates the indicator on the left side. When the right arm is moved it activates the indicator on the right side. This system has two forms, one which is prevention and to illuminate and the other is an alert system. This system connects to mobile phone sensors so that when there is a change in acceleration it sends those registered details that there is a change in acceleration and probably an accident and a location where the cyclist can be found. So it has two things, firstly prevention and the other is an alert system in case of an accident.

    President Donald Trump and critics have candidates and foreign adversaries actively seeking to leverage any problem, no matter how small, to reduce voter's confidence in the system, to delegitimize this election. Most election officials across the country are on high alert making sure and double checking that problems don't occur -- and it's actually pretty impressive given how many new options for mail-in voting that there are, that there aren't more problems.

  5. Dianne Feinstein:

    Southern California's inconceivable that with all the safety regulations we have in place today, a fire on a boat can lead to the loss of life we saw this morning, and we need to understand exactly how the crew was trained and, if they were awake and above-deck, why they were unable to alert or help rescue passengers.
