English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. resemblance

    Analogy is specifically a resemblance of relations; a resemblance that may be reasoned from, so that from the likeness in certain respects we may infer that other and perhaps deeper relations exist. Affinity is a mutual attraction with or without seeming likeness; as, the affinity of iron for oxygen. Coincidence is complete agreement in some one or more respects; there may be a coincidence in time of most dissimilar events. Parity of reasoning is said of an argument equally conclusive on subjects not strictly analogous. Similitude is a rhetorical comparison of one thing to another with which it has some points in common. Resemblance and similarity are external or superficial, and may involve no deeper relation; as, the resemblance of a cloud to a distant mountain. Compare ALLEGORY.

How to use resemblance in a sentence?

  1. Abdelhamid Abaaoud:

    I suddenly saw my picture all over the media, but alhamdulillah( thanks be to God), the kuffar( infidels) were blinded by Allah, i was even stopped by an officer who contemplated me so as to compare me to the picture, but he let me go, as he did not see the resemblance.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life bears an astonishingly closer resemblance to the boxing game IMHO. You see, in a boxing game, the boxer is declared defeated not when he has fallen but when he has refused to get up. That's why in life it doesn't matter how many times you fall; yet what matters in reality is how often you get up and rise. Good luck, my friend!

  3. Donald Trump:

    Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud. It bore no resemblance to what took place with those incredible people that I was so lucky to meet and spend time with. They were all amazing !

  4. California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso:

    They said he resembled the guy in the video, so there was a resemblance. It wasn't an uncanny resemblance.

  5. Damitha Pathmalal:

    As long as the government remains in the business of picking winners and losers, the engine of creative destruction that is necessary for true innovation in this or any other sector is unlikely to take root in Sri Lanka,” Pathmalal cautioned. “History doesn’t repeat itself but it rhymes. The local economic policy-making bodies bear a striking resemblance to Venice’s Great Council, which was comprised of the business leaders of the time and informed government policy. It ostensibly fostered economic growth but by its design was a protectionist old boys club. In 1330 Venice was the size of Paris and three times larger London. It is now a city that is literally under water and a museum for tourists.”
