English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sort

    Air is that combination of qualities which makes the entire impression we receive in a person's presence; as, we say he has the air of a scholar, or the air of a villain. Appearance refers more to the dress and other externals. We might say of a travel-soiled pedestrian, he has the appearance of a tramp, but the air of a gentleman. Expression and look especially refer to the face. Expression is oftenest applied to that which is habitual; as, he has a pleasant expression of countenance; look may be momentary; as, a look of dismay passed over his face. We may, however, speak of the look or looks as indicating all that we look at; as, he had the look of an adventurer; I did not like his looks. Bearing is rather a lofty word; as, he has a noble bearing; port is practically identical in meaning with bearing, but is more exclusively a literary word. Carriage, too, is generally used in a good sense; as, that lady has a good carriage. Mien is closely synonymous with air, but less often used in a bad sense. We say a rakish air rather than a rakish mien. Mien may be used to express some prevailing feeling; as, "an indignant mien." Demeanor goes beyond appearance, including conduct, behavior; as, a modest demeanor. Manner and style are, in large part at least, acquired. Compare BEHAVIOR.

    Synonyms:
    air, appearance, bearing, behavior, carriage, demeanor, expression, fashion, look, manner, mien, port, style, way

How to use sort in a sentence?

  1. Jeff Eastin:

    What really shocked me about New York, I have to say, are the people. I mean, I sort of—being from Colorado originally and then from L.A., there was sort of a perception that people from New York can be very cold and sort of distant. I was really surprised that that was the exact opposite of what I found. I found that people there were incredibly nice, incredibly warm.

  2. Mark Domingo:

    Like anybody else, I dont want to assume a thing when someone joins a new religion, if anything, I thought it was a good thing. I thought maybe my brother finally found some sort of guidance in this world.

  3. Jane Seymour:

    He sat down next to me and said,' Well, I've told everyone you're perfect for my movie and I can't wait. I've done my bit. Now it's your turn to do your bit,' she recalled. Jane Seymour said she did n’t understand what the producer was referring to, until he began sliding his hand up her thigh. He said,' No, no, you know what you have to do.' And I'm going,' No, I don't.' And he put his hand on my thigh, way up high. And being very British, I sort of crossed my legs and started scooting down the couch until I'd ended up with no couch left and I really had no option but to stand up and just say,' Please help me get home, ’.

  4. Michel de Montaigne:

    I believe it to be true that dreams are the true interpreters of our inclinations; but there is art required to sort and understand them.

  5. Wendy Murphy:

    They might be using the high-profile nature of the proceeding to continue to build a narrative in the court of public opinion, the defense could have information that we haven't heard yet that they want to play out in sort of a trial balloon sense. What would the public reaction be to new information about motive and so forth?
