English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. outlandish

    Rural and rustic are alike derived from the Latin rus, country, and may be alike defined as pertaining to, characteristic of, or dwelling in the country; but in usage rural refers especially to scenes or objects in the country, considered as the work of nature; rustic refers to their effect upon man or to their condition as affected by human agency; as, a rural scene; a rustic party; a rustic lass. We speak, however, of the rural population, rural simplicity, etc. Rural has always a favorable sense; rustic frequently an unfavorable one, as denoting a lack of culture and refinement; thus, rustic politeness expresses that which is well-meant, but awkward; similar ideas are suggested by a rustic feast, rustic garb, etc. Rustic is, however, often used of a studied simplicity, an artistic rudeness, which is pleasing and perhaps beautiful; as, a rustic cottage; a rustic chair. Pastoral refers to the care of flocks, and to the shepherd's life with the pleasing associations suggested by the old poetic ideal of that life; as, pastoral poetry. Bucolic is kindred to pastoral, but is a less elevated term, and sometimes slightly contemptuous.

    Synonyms:
    agricultural, artless, awkward, boorish, bucolic, clownish, coarse, countrified, country, hoidenish, inelegant, pastoral, plain, rude, rural, rustic, sylvan, uncouth, unpolished, unsophisticated, untaught, verdant

    Antonyms:
    accomplished, city-like, cultured, elegant, polished, polite, refined, urban, urbane, well-bred

How to use outlandish in a sentence?

  1. Pascal Finette:

    There aren't many businesses that deliver returns like Google's core business, so it drives them to embark on these pretty outlandish looking missions, they're pushing the envelope for what is the next big company in the next 5, 10, 20 years.

  2. Robert Dowlut:

    History teaches us the unfortunate lesson that cultural values supplant constitutional rights whenever the cultural elite consider a right too burdensome to suit the needs of the moment. The outlandish pronouncement in Dred Scott 'that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit,' the shameful court-approved internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and the separate but equal doctrine that officially existed until 1954 are all examples of the evils that result when cultural values are given more weight than constitutional rights.

  3. Jeff Flake:

    It's a concern to have Trump on the top of the ticket. It's a concern for anyone on the ballot, some of us feel we have a responsibility to speak out when he makes outlandish, crazy statements like the Muslim ban or a number of others.

  4. Donald Trump:

    If the President is going to make outlandish claims like this in the future, he needs to know he will be exposed and high-ranking people within the US government -- like the director of our intelligence agencies and the FBI -- will be forced to say the President wasn't telling the truth.

  5. White House:

    Go look at all the tape from every national TV show you can imagine, of some of the most outlandish claims that were made and now the Mueller report comes out and it's clear those claims are baseless. There was no collusion.
