English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. reserved

    Dumb, mute, silent and speechless refer to fact or state; taciturn refers to habit and disposition. The talkative person may be stricken dumb with surprise or terror; the obstinate may remain mute; one may be silent through preoccupation of mind or of set purpose; but the taciturn person is averse to the utterance of thought or feeling and to communication with others, either from natural disposition or for the occasion. One who is silent does not speak at all; one who is taciturn speaks when compelled, but in a grudging way that repels further approach. Reserved suggests more of method and intention than taciturn, applying often to some special time or topic; one who is communicative regarding all else may be reserved about his business. Reserved is thus closely equivalent to uncommunicative, but is a somewhat stronger word, often suggesting pride or haughtiness, as when we say one is reserved toward inferiors. Compare PRIDE.

How to use reserved in a sentence?

  1. Michael Kugelman:

    We shouldn't overstate the importance of this letter. It may be a case of the Taliban trying to earn some legitimacy and goodwill by playing the role of good guy and proposing nonviolent solutions, at the end of the day, The Taliban has no incentive to propose talks unless it's starting to feel major pressure on the battlefield. Though U.S. forces have ramped up their fight, I think it's too early for The Taliban to suddenly conclude it's not worth fighting anymore. Michael Kugelman said the Taliban offer could nonetheless be useful to the President Trump administration. Even if the letter is just a bluff, and I assume it is, the White House can say - Look, our strategy is already paying off. A spate of bombings last month in Kabul fueled anger against The Taliban across the country, and prompted the President Trump administration to close the doors for peace talks with the Islamic insurgents. Taliban fighters( Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.) But The Taliban knows President Trump does n’t want the U.S. to be in Special Representative for Afghanistan. The Taliban will be banking on the belief the U.S. and the West have lost the will to remain there. US ADDING AIR POWER, INTELLIGENCE GATHERING IN AFGHANISTAN US AND PAKISTAN CLASH AT United Nations ' OVER Special Representative for Afghanistan In a recent visit to eastern Special Representative for Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, who commands the U.S. and NATO’s Resolute Support mission in the Special Representative for Afghanistan, said the intensified U.S. offensive is producing results.

  2. Alfred North Whitehead:

    Nature gets credit which should in truth be reserved for ourselves: the rose for its scent, the nightingale for its song; and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self congratulation on the excellence of the human mind.

  3. Craig Peters:

    This verdict makes a mockery of justice by believing an incoherent story professed by an admitted liar, and then compensating that liar with an award… while subjecting these boys to a sentence that is reserved for unredeemable, career criminals that commit premeditated killings.

  4. Theresa Spinner:

    Safety first, but, I mean, it's a mess, i have a job interview tomorrow morning, and I already have reserved a cab.

  5. Nancy Reagan:

    Without Jerry looking out for Ronnie on March 30, 1981, I would have certainly lost my best friend and roommate to an assassin's bullet, jerry was not only one of the finest Secret Service agents to ever serve this country, but one of the most decent human beings I've ever known. He was humble but strong, reserved but confident, and blessed with a great sense of humor. It is no wonder that he and my husband got along so well.
