English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. semblance

    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 semblance in a sentence?

  1. Carl Takei:

    While accountability for the officer might have led to some semblance of justice, real justice would have been Jacob Blake never being shot in the first place.

  2. Quentin Hart:

    The assurance that people in this community, in my community, that they're safe, i think of the people that may not have the means that I have, I think about the children that are at home that may not be in great situations. The strain that this is putting on our entire community. I think about the people that are working at Tyson's. I think about just people, and the ability to return back to some semblance of, I'll say, normal life.

  3. David Schanzer:

    But despite the horrific attacks, the reasons against a large-scale land invasion by U.S. and NATO forces against ISIS in Iraq and Syria remain, such an invasion will deepen the extremist narrative of clash of civilization between the West and Muslims, will insert our militaries into a deep, nasty, and unwinnable civil war, and the invading force will eventually be responsible for reconstructing a semblance of order and governance in (a) chaotic region infected with sectarian divisions.

  4. Chemi Shalev:

    Trump is genuinely interested in making peace. He's been very consistent about that. I think he sees it as a personal challenge, and he had to get over bad relations with Gulf countries, especially Saudi Arabia, and part of that is that the Saudis have made it clear to him that if he's thinking of creating (a regional) anti-Iranian bloc, at least part of that has to be a semblance of a peace process with the Palestinians.

  5. Bhaskar Chakravorti:

    We're not just getting information about the public health situation but we are trying to replicate some semblance of business online with their help.
