English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sensation

    Sensation is the mind's consciousness due to a bodily affection, as of heat or cold; perception is the cognition of some external object which is the cause or occasion of the sensation; the sensation of heat may be connected with the perception of a fire. While sensations are connected with the body, emotions, as joy, grief, etc., are wholly of the mind. "As the most of them [the sensations] are positively agreeable or the opposite, they are nearly akin to those emotions, as hope or terror, or those passions, as anger and envy, which are acknowledged by all to belong exclusively to the spirit, and to involve no relation whatever to matter or the bodily organism. Such feelings are not infrequently styled sensations, though improperly." Porter Human Intellect § 112, p. 128. [Chas. Scribner's Sons '90.] Feeling is a general term popularly denoting what is felt, whether through the body or by the mind alone, and includes both sensation and emotion. A sense is an organ or faculty of sensation or of perception.

    Synonyms:
    emotion, feeling, perception, sense

How to use sensation in a sentence?

  1. Pope Francis:

    Four or five years, i do not know, even two or three. Two have already passed. It is a somewhat vague sensation. Maybe it's like the psychology of the gambler who convinces himself he will lose, so he won't be disappointed and if he wins, is happy. I do not know.

  2. Kathleen Cullen:

    There's a really profound fundamental thing that happens in the brain of people like dancers or skaters over lots and lots of practice. And that's basically a change in the way the brain is processing information, when you spin around, you're activating the semicircular canals, rotation sensors. They're filled with fluid and they're sensing your rotation. But when you stop, the fluid has inertia and it tends to continue to move. They actually get a false sensation of movement.

  3. Caroline Weaver:

    A lot of our customers are people who happen to be walking by, and they come in a little surprised and amused by a shop that just sells pencils, but we also get a lot of word-of-mouth business from journalists, designers, architects and kids coming in after school. I love seeing kids get excited about pencils. Adults remember the smell, the tactile sensation of writing with a freshly sharpened pencil.

  4. Jasmine Sanders:

    You know, I started modeling really young, i was 12 when I first started. And then when I finished school, 17 turning 18, I moved to Paris. That was a huge change for me. I was never an overnight sensation. My success has been years of hard work and I’ve been doing this for a long time. I really had to put all my time and energy into my goals.

  5. Patricia Rockman:

    You're really just attending to the sensation of walking, once you become accustomed to it, you could use this when you're walking anywhere.
