English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. plane

    Horizontal signifies in the direction of or parallel to the horizon. For practical purposes level and horizontal are identical, tho level, as the more popular word, is more loosely used of that which has no especially noticeable elevations or inequalities; as, a level road. Flat, according to its derivation from the Anglo-Saxon flet, a floor, applies to a surface only, and, in the first and most usual sense, to a surface that is horizontal or level in all directions; a line may be level, a floor is flat; flat is also applied in a derived sense to any plane surface without irregularities or elevations, as a picture may be painted on the flat surface of a perpendicular wall. Plane applies only to a surface, and is used with more mathematical exactness than flat. The adjective plain, originally the same word as plane, is now rarely used except in the figurative senses, but the original sense appears in the noun, as we speak of "a wide plain." We speak of a horizontal line, a flat morass, a level road, a plain country, a plane surface (especially in the scientific sense). That which is level may not be even, and that which is even may not be level; a level road may be very rough; a slope may be even.

    Synonyms:
    even, flat, horizontal, level, plain

    Antonyms:
    broken, hilly, inclined, irregular, rolling, rough, rugged, slanting, sloping, uneven

  1. Vendela Payne:

    My dad was making funny faces, silly faces in the mirror and I felt like screaming the whole time, i know it’s to keep everybody on the plane safe, but she kept patting me down. Pat-down, pat-down. It was like, over and over.

  2. The Iraq War:

    It is a good plane, and having some number of them might be a good idea, but it is not the only aircraft that does air support and it's definitely not the only thing our military needs.

  3. Melissa Young:

    I'm looking out at the passengers and it's quiet and it's dark and it occurred to me at that moment how vulnerable the passengers were at the hands of the two men who were flying the plane, and he didn't have an answer. It was right there that I knew I had to figure it out.

  4. Joel Babbitt:

    This allows them to do dynamic planning while they are in route to an objective, they get on a plane and fly somewhere between 12 to 20 hours to get to an objective. During that time they have very little data. The transformation we are making is that they will be able to have voice communications along with huge amounts of data.

  5. Dmitry Medvedev:

    An act of terror with our plane and the terror attack in Paris ... have sharpened the global political agenda, the war is declared against the whole civilised world. The threat is global and, alas, is real. So the stance of some Western countries on Russia looks weird.
