English Synonyms and Antonyms
Fine (Latin finis, end) denotes that which has been brought to a full end, finished. From this root-sense many derived meanings branch out, causing words quite remote from each other to be alike synonyms of fine. That which is truly finished, brought to an ideal end, is excellent of its kind, and beautiful, if a thing that admits of beauty; as, a fine house, fine trees, a fine woman, a fine morning; if a thing that admits of the removal of impurities, it is not finished till these are removed, and hence fine signifies clarified, clear, pure, refined; as, fine gold. That which is finished is apt to be polished, smooth to the touch, minutely exact in outline; hence fine comes to be a synonym for all words like dainty, delicate, exquisite; as, fine manners, a fine touch, fine perceptions. As that which is delicate is apt to be small, by an easy extension of meaning fine becomes a synonym for slender, slight, minute, comminuted; as, a fine thread, fine sand; or for filmy, tenuous, thin; as, a fine lace, fine wire; and as a thin edge is keen, sharp, fine becomes also a synonym for these words; as, a fine point, a fine edge. Compare BEAUTIFUL; MINUTE.
beautiful, clarified, clear, comminuted, dainty, delicate, elegant, excellent, exquisite, fine, gauzy, handsome, keen, minute, nice, polished, pure, refined, sensitive, sharp, slender, small, smooth, splendid, subtile, subtle, tenuous, thin

How to use slight in a sentence?
You Cannot Beat But You Can Bomb If the religious scholars force any authority or moral rules, we reject as non-matching with the modern system of our lives. When the question of the beating to man or woman or children is, we see that as it is unjust and ridiculous. Mostly such things do not happen even as the rules. If we focus on our modern system and justice, a few idiots decide to bomb and drone on innocent men, women, and children, we keep and close our eyes and ears, but we object to a slight beat, what the ignorant and the senseless matter is that. Religious scholars are the fool ones, and superpowers are the wise ones. You cannot even slightly beat on wrongs, but they can bomb on innocents.
For with slight efforts how should we obtain great results It is foolish even to desire it.
