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. Selahattin Demirtas:

    Why do the people not rebel against them even for all this oppression? How do they manage this? They do it by the Presidency of Religious Affairs (PRA). The do the silencing by PRA. So I call that the religion has become a hostage of these (AKP). They are using the religion as a stick, they hit everybody who raises his head with this stick. Anybody who rebels against poverty, unemployment they hit with religion. Don't misunderstand me, this stick is not the religion sent from Allah, this is the religion of the state and government. It bears no resemblance to Islam. This is why I say when the PRA is abolished religion will be free.

This fills his heart with dread and terror and makes him see his miserable, undone condition.
