English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sing

    To sing is primarily and ordinarily to utter a succession of articulate musical sounds with the human voice. The word has come to include any succession of musical sounds; we say the bird or the rivulet sings; we speak of "the singing quality" of an instrument, and by still wider extension of meaning we say the teakettle or the cricket sings. To chant is to sing in solemn and somewhat uniform cadence; chant is ordinarily applied to non-metrical religious compositions. To carol is to sing joyously, and to warble (kindred with whirl) is to sing with trills or quavers, usually also with the idea of joy. Carol and warble are especially applied to the singing of birds. To chirp is to utter a brief musical sound, perhaps often repeated in the same key, as by certain small birds, insects, etc. To chirrup is to utter a somewhat similar sound; the word is often used of a brief, sharp sound uttered as a signal to animate or rouse a horse or other animal. To hum is to utter murmuring sounds with somewhat monotonous musical cadence, usually with closed lips; we speak also of the hum of machinery, etc.

    Synonyms:
    carol, chant, chirp, chirrup, hum, warble

How to use sing in a sentence?

  1. Bon Jovi:

    You can have all the bells and whistles of production these days, and these guys that are out there singing on the Grammys with auto-tune. I always used to say, 'I'm going to hand you my guitar, sing me something, and I want to see you play it.' This is that night, so we'll have a little bit of fun and give back.

  2. Author Unknown:

    No poet sings because he must sing. At least no great poet does. A great poet sings because he chooses to sing.

  3. W. H. Auden:

    Precisely because we do not communicate by singing, a song can be out of place but not out of character; it is just as credible that a stupid person should sing beautifully as that a clever person should do so.

  4. Stevie Nicks:

    I preferred not to be laden down with a big instrument. If you're behind a guitar, you get used to being behind a guitar, and you don't really perform because you can't. I wanted to be able to just hold on to the mike and sing.

  5. Jennifer Holliday:

    I voted for Mrs. Clinton, and they knew that. But if someone wants me to sing a national anthem or something, we think about America, and we go.
