English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. preference

    A choice may be among many things; an alternative is in the strictest sense a choice between two things; oftener it is one of two things between which a choice is to be made, and either of which is the alternative of the other; as, the alternative of surrender is death; or the two things between which there is a choice may be called the alternatives; both Mill and Gladstone are quoted as extending the meaning of alternative to include several particulars, Gladstone even speaking of "the fourth and last of these alternatives." Option is the right or privilege of choosing; choice may be either the right to choose, the act of choosing, or the thing chosen. A person of ability and readiness will commonly have many resources. Pick, from the Saxon, and election, from the Latin, picture the objects before one, with freedom and power to choose which he will; as, there were twelve horses, among which I could take my pick. A choice, pick, election, or preference is that which suits one best; an alternative is that to which one is restricted; a resource, that to which one is glad to betake oneself.

    Synonyms:
    alternative, choice, election, option, pick, resource

    Antonyms:
    compulsion, necessity

How to use preference in a sentence?

  1. Chris Woodward:

    Manager Chris Woodward still lives in Arizona, where Manager Chris Woodward was already talking about 105-degree temperatures last week when expressing Manager Chris Woodward preference for workouts in Texas. Being in Texas instead of Arizona would eliminate the close proximity to some other teams to play additional spring training games before the season. The Rangers would have to depend primarily on intrasquad games to get prepared for the season. This year is obviously different from any other year. Our guys know that, and Ive talked to them at length about that. So anything we do is going to not be normal.

  2. Sheriff Mina:

    I think that's smart, that would be my preference: Let's watch the video and see if this is a case that needs to move forward.

  3. Matthew Knight:

    We have never seen anything like' Oumuamua in our solar system. It's really a mystery still, but our preference is to stick with analogs we know, unless or until we find something unique. The alien spacecraft hypothesis is a fun idea, but our analysis suggests there is a whole host of natural phenomena that could explain it.

  4. Mark Harper:

    My preference is to get a new deal. However, no deal must not be ruled out, should we be faced with a choice between no deal and no Brexit, this is my plan – one that can be delivered. One thing I'm not promising, as much as I'd like, is that we will leave deal or no deal come October 31st. Why? It's because I'm being straight with you and it just isn't possible.

  5. Vincent Pang:

    Our preference will of course be Google and Android as we have been partners for many years, but if the circumstances force us to, we can roll out Hongmeng in six to nine months.
