English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sheen

    Light, strictly denoting a form of radiant energy, is used as a general term for any luminous effect discernible by the eye, from the faintest phosphorescence to the blaze of the noonday sun. A flame is both hot and luminous; if it contains few solid particles it will yield little light, tho it may afford intense heat, as in the case of a hydrogen-flame. A blaze is an extensive, brilliant flame. A flare is a wavering flame or blaze; a flash is a light that appears and disappears in an instant; as, a flash of lightning; the flash of gunpowder. The glare and glow are steady, the glare painfully bright, the glow subdued; as, the glare of torches; the glow of dying embers. Shine and shining refer to a steady or continuous emission of light; sheen is a faint shining, usually by reflection. Glimmer, glitter, and shimmer denote wavering light. We speak of the glimmer of distant lamps through the mist; of the shimmer of waves in sunlight or moonlight. A gleam is not wavering, but transient or intermittent; a sudden gleam of light came through the half-open door; a glitter is a hard light; as, the glitter of burnished arms. A sparkle is a sudden light, as of sparks thrown out; scintillation is the more exact and scientific term for the actual emission of sparks, also the figurative term for what suggests such emission; as, scintillations of wit or of genius. Twinkle and twinkling are used of the intermittent light of the fixed stars. Glistening is a shining as from a wet surface. Illumination is a wide-spread, brilliant light, as when all the windows of a house or of a street are lighted. The light of incandescence is intense and white like that from metal at a white heat.

How to use sheen in a sentence?

  1. Michael Douglas:

    You look back at Oliver Stones’s career — Jimmy Woods in' El Salvador,' Charlie Sheen in' Platoon,' Tom Cruise in' Born On The Fourth of July,' Kevin Costner in' JFK,' Val Kilmer in' The Doors' — and every actor has probably given their best performance with Oliver Stones, because, whether it is his Vietnam mentality, he wants you in the trenches with him.

  2. Jonathan Scott:

    I applaud Charlie Sheen for coming out publicly, it was a huge milestone in the HIV epidemic when Magic Johnson came out, then Rock Hudson and Greg Louganis as a Olympic medalist. That was over 25 years ago. HIV may not be fatal and incurable as it was then, yet at the same time there are many people to help and much to do.

  3. Steven Hoffman:

    We also saw several leading organizations in HIV prevention begin to use Charlie Sheen's disclosure as a way to promote HIV prevention. i think there probably are a lot of celebrities who want to do good and would be open to the idea of working with public health officials to do good.

  4. Charlie Sheen:

    Charlie Sheen said Charlie Sheen found out Charlie Sheen was HIV positive about four years ago. Charlie Sheen symptoms began with crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor, Charlie Sheen recalled. I thought it was over. The star said Charlie Sheen was coming forward with the truth because of the rumors in the press surrounding Charlie Sheen health. I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn't be further from the truth. Charlie Sheen said the most hurtful rumor Charlie Sheen read claimed Charlie Sheen intentionally transmitted the disease to Charlie Sheen partners. That’s as far from the truth as anything can be, Charlie Sheen said. Drug and alcohol use have marred Sheen's personal and professional life in recent years. Charlie Sheen was kicked off CBS' Two and a Half Men in 2011 after an explosive meltdown that included calling the show's producer a contaminated little maggot. Charlie Sheen escapades have also included the revelation that Charlie Sheen spent more than $ 50,000 as a client of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss' prostitution ring. You can only hear ‘ winning ’ in the streets so many times, i am approaching a time of more of a philanthropic culture in my life.

  5. John Ayers:

    It turns out, though, that if you look at the Sheen effect and if you look at these other examples of organic media events ... that's not the case. These messages, they come from the bottom; they come from ordinary people. People who aren't health experts. Sheen might be a celebrity, but he's not a health expert. Angelina Jolie is not a health expert.
