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. Mohammad Abuershaid:

    She was a practicing Muslim, she believed in the religion, and she was just doing the five prayers a day, the fasting... there was nothing to show that she was out of the ordinary.

  2. Reed Alexander:

    The response to the show coming back has been nothing short of amazing. ' iCarly' has stayed so culturally relevant for millions of viewers that it's exciting to see, after almost a decade, that the anticipation and enthusiasm that's carried over from the original series has exploded online in the past few weeks with the announcement of its revival, coming back to iCarly after so many years to be a part of this reboot was incredibly fun. Being together on set with the cast again, playing our parts again -- it all felt extremely natural, and I know the viewers are in for a treat when The Nickelodeon show premieres.

  3. Ellen Page:

    If I was still closeted I wouldn’t be making this show, and let’s think about how much that limits people, or limits people of all minorities who are not given opportunities to create work, we do a job that’s about telling stories — obviously it’s becoming clear that we can’t just be telling stories about one group of people. People need to have opportunity; that’s what’s going to make the whole industry grow and blossom. As a person who’s involved with it and as a person who’s an audience member, I really hope that starts to happen.

  4. Mohammad Abuershaid:

    There was nothing to show that she was extreme at all, she was a practicing Muslim, she believed in the religion, and she was just doing the five prayers a day, the fasting... there was nothing to show that she was out of the ordinary.

  5. Jon Rahm:

    When I made the decision to come straight from Augusta it wouldn't be to just show up and walk around, I wanted to win this tournament, i've been blessed to be national champion from 16 to all ages in Spain. To round my amateur and pro career together in this way and win the last one I had to win and join that prestigious list of Spanish winners, it's hard to explain how good it feels and how satisfying it is.
