English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. prevailing

    Usual (Latin usus, use, habit, wont) signifies such as regularly or often recurs in the ordinary course of events, or is habitually repeated in the life of the same person. Ordinary (Latin ordo, order) signifies according to an established order, hence of everyday occurrence. In strictness, common and general apply to the greater number of individuals in a class; but both words are in good use as applying to the greater number of instances in a series, so that it is possible to speak of one person's common practise or general custom, tho ordinary or usual would in such case be preferable. Compare GENERAL; NORMAL.

    Synonyms:
    accustomed, common, customary, everyday, familiar, frequent, general, habitual, normal, ordinary, prevalent, public, regular, usual, wonted

    Antonyms:
    exceptional, extraordinary, infrequent, out-of-the-way, rare, singular, strange, uncommon, unparalleled, unusual
