English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. show

    The phrase battle array or array of battle is archaic and poetic; we now say in line or order of battle. The parade is for exhibition and oversight, and partial rehearsal of military manual and maneuvers. Array refers to a continuous arrangement of men, so that all may be seen or reviewed at once. This is practically impossible with the vast armies of our day. We say rather the disposition of troops, which expresses their location so as to sustain and support, though unable to see or readily communicate with each other. Compare DRESS.

    Synonyms:
    army, arrangement, array, battle array, collection, disposition, exhibition, line of battle, order, order of battle, parade, sight

How to use show in a sentence?

  1. Jesse Alton:

    Someone who's playing a video game could win a flaming sword in their favorite game on Xbox, put it in their inventory, and later in VR, they can show it to their friend and their friend can hold it, it's the ability to transport [ information ] from one world to another, regardless of which platform it's in.

  2. Mark Zaid:

    When this started to become an issue in November, with the lease provision, I said find me a plaintiff and I ’ll take the case. Scott Rome is a business lawyer in D.C. Rome approached me and said Scott Rome could get some restaurants, they [ restaurants or hotels ] had to have the courage to step up to the plate. Not everyone is willing to do that. A lot of hotels would show interest, and then the CEOs would step away for fear of their shareholders. Cork was brave enough to be the pioneer, and we’re hopeful that others come forward -- not that we need them necessarily.

  3. Yi Zhu of Team China:

    I'm upset and a little embarrassed, i guess I felt a lot of pressure because I know everybody in China was pretty surprised with the selection for ladies' singles and I just really wanted to show them what I was able to do, but unfortunately I didn’t.

  4. Will Steffen:

    I do think it's a very positive announcement because it does show that there's been a mistake made in the initial sacking of all the CSIRO climate scientists and the downgrading of climate science, but I'm not clear whether the 15 new positions that Minister Hunt announced are in addition to reinstating all of the earlier ones, or whether they only partially reinstate what has already been damaged.

  5. Pat Egan:

    I think Bob Marley was the first really big international star to come to Ireland to play an outdoor show, nobody of that kind of calibre was fronting a whole revolution in music... he was more than a rock figure, he was fronting a cultural revolution.
