English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sensible

    One is aware of that which exists without him; he is conscious of the inner workings of his own mind. Sensible may be used in the exact sense of conscious, or it may partake of both the senses mentioned above. One may be sensible of his own or another's error; he is conscious only of his own. A person may feel assured or sure of something false or non-existent; what he is aware of, still more what he is conscious of, must be fact. Sensible has often a reference to the emotions where conscious might apply only to the intellect; to say a culprit is sensible of his degradation is more forcible than to say he is conscious of it.

    Synonyms:
    advised, apprised, assured, aware, certain, certified, cognizant, conscious, informed, sure

    Antonyms:
    cold, dead, deaf, ignorant, insensible, unaware, unconscious

    Preposition:
    On the stormy sea, man is conscious of the limitation of human power.

How to use sensible in a sentence?

  1. Alexander Hamilton:

  2. Michael Hewson:

  4. Prime Minister David Cameron:

    I have always said I think that it is sensible that we should: ISIL don't recognize a border between Iraq and Syria and neither should we but I need to build the argument, I need to take it to parliament, I need to convince more people, we won't hold that vote unless we can see that parliament would endorse action because to fail on this would be damaging. It is not a question of damaging the government it is a question of not damaging our country and its reputation in the world.

  5. Neil Saunders:
