English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. overt

    That is apparent which clearly appears to the senses or to the mind as soon as the attention is directed toward it; that is evident of which the mind is made sure by some inference that supplements the facts of perception; the marks of a struggle were apparent in broken shrubbery and trampled ground, and the finding of a mutilated body and a rifled purse made it evident that robbery and murder had been committed. That is manifest which we can lay the hand upon; manifest is thus stronger than evident, as touch is more absolute than sight; that the picture was a modern copy of an ancient work was evident, and on comparison with the original its inferiority was manifest. That is obvious which is directly in the way so that it can not be missed; as, the application of the remark was obvious. Visible applies to all that can be perceived by the sense of sight, whether the noonday sun, a ship on the horizon, or a microscopic object. Discernible applies to that which is dimly or faintly visible, requiring strain and effort in order to be seen; as, the ship was discernible through the mist. That is conspicuous which stands out so as necessarily or strikingly to attract the attention. Palpable and tangible express more emphatically the thought of manifest.

    Synonyms:
    apparent, clear, conspicuous, discernible, distinct, evident, glaring, indubitable, manifest, obvious, open, palpable, patent, perceptible, plain, tangible, transparent, unmistakable, visible

    Antonyms:
    concealed, covert, dark, hidden, impalpable, impenetrable, imperceptible, invisible, latent, obscure, occult, secret, undiscovered, unimagined, unknown, unseen, unthought-of

How to use overt in a sentence?

  1. Mark Wu:

    It would be a much more dramatic step to declare China to be an enemy power with which the U.S. is at war, given the president has at times touted his friendship with and respect for President Xi (Jinping), that would amount to an overt declaration, while IEEPA would allow the Trump administration to take similar actions without as large of a diplomatic cost.

  2. Paul Horsnell:

    The only aspiration OPEC should have for its 2 June meeting is simply not to repeat the chaos of the Doha process, a straightforward meeting with no binding commitments and, most importantly, no overt arguments would be the best outcome for ministers.

  3. Gary Rolando:

    The church policy is that people with alternate lifestyles can have services, but there can be no pictures or videos of overt kissing or hugging, i understand both sides. The family wanted to honor Vanessa, and the church has to answer to its board and the members who pay their bills.

  4. Keegan Hankes:

    It doesn't take an overt slur for these individuals to basically become emboldened and to recognize and be excited by policies that they see would further their goals, when they hear the President say things like,' I'm not a racist,' they turn around amongst themselves and say,' He just has to say that for practical reasons,'' he just has to say that basically to get himself cover, to do the things that we want him to do,'.

  5. Barack Obama:

    Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say n----- in public, that's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.
