English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. question(n)

    Doubt is a lack of conviction that may refer either to matters of belief or to matters of practise. As regards belief, while doubt is lack of conviction, disbelief is conviction, to the contrary; unbelief refers to a settled state of mind, generally accompanied with opposition of heart. Perplexity is active and painful; doubt may be quiescent. Perplexity presses toward a solution; doubt may be content to linger unresolved. Any improbable statement awakens incredulity. In theological usage unbelief and skepticism have a condemnatory force, as implying wilful rejection of manifest truth. As regards practical matters, uncertainty applies to the unknown or undecided; doubt implies some negative evidence. Suspense regards the future, and is eager and anxious; uncertainty may relate to any period, and be quite indifferent. Misgiving is ordinarily in regard to the outcome of something already done or decided; hesitation, indecision, and irresolution have reference to something that remains to be decided or done, and are due oftener to infirmity of will than to lack of knowledge. Distrust and suspicion apply especially to the motives, character, etc., of others, and are more decidedly adverse than doubt. Scruple relates to matters of conscience and duty.

    Synonyms:
    disbelief, distrust, doubt, doubt, hesitancy, hesitation, incredulity, indecision, irresolution, misgiving, perplexity, scruple, skepticism, suspense, suspicion, unbelief, uncertainty

    Antonyms:
    assurance, belief, certainty, confidence, conviction, decision, determination, persuasion, resolution, resolve

    It was both extraordinary and disgraceful, they were very clearly coming out as apologists for terrorism...
