English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. peculiarity

    A characteristic belongs to the nature or character of the person, thing, or class, and serves to identify an object; as, a copper-colored skin, high cheek-bones, and straight, black hair are characteristics of the American Indian. A sign is manifest to an observer; a mark or a characteristic may be more difficult to discover; an insensible person may show signs of life, while sometimes only close examination will disclose marks of violence. Pallor is ordinarily a mark of fear; but in some brave natures it is simply a characteristic of intense earnestness. Mark is sometimes used in a good, but often in a bad sense; we speak of the characteristic of a gentleman, the mark of a villain. Compare ATTRIBUTE; CHARACTER.

How to use peculiarity in a sentence?

  1. The wise Pharoah Moe:

    Reading by itself is certainly not sufficient to breed wistfulness; a natural-born peculiarity of wisdom ought to exist in one's very brain cells, and reflected on his very deep beliefs and thoughts..

  2. August Strindberg:

    Sorrow has the fortunate peculiarity that it preys upon itself. It dies of starvation. Since it is essentially an interruption of habits, it can be replaced by new habits. Constituting, as it does, a void, it is soon filled up by a real horror vacuum.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Originality is better off than imitation. Yes! because originality endows peculiarity and which at the long run leads to profitability and excellence. Whereas, imitation brings about limitation, which often leads to frustration and mediocrity. That is to say, you've got to be original rather than imitation. Therefore, dare to be original and remain original in all your undertakings. Note: whoever that continues to imitate or copy someone else or others will definitely end up a copycat QED. -Emeasoba George
