English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sport

    Entertainment and recreation imply thought and mental occupation, tho in an agreeable, refreshing way; they are therefore words of a high order. Entertainment, apart from its special senses of a public performance or a social party, and predominantly even there, is used of somewhat mirthful mental delight; recreation may, and usually does, combine the mental with the physical. Amusement and pastime are nearly equivalent, the latter probably the lighter word; many slight things may be pastimes which we should hardly dignify by the name of amusements. Sports are almost wholly on the physical plane, tho involving a certain grade of mental action; fox-hunting, horse-racing, and baseball are sports. Certain sports may afford entertainment or recreation to certain persons, according to their individual tastes; but entertainment and recreation are capable of a meaning so high as never to be approached by any meaning of sport. Cheer may be very quiet, as the cheer of a bright fire to an aged traveler; merriment is with liveliness and laughter; fun and frolic are apt to be boisterous. Amusement is a form of enjoyment, but enjoyment may be too keen to be called amusement. Compare synonyms for ENTERTAIN.

    Synonyms:
    amusement, cheer, delight, diversion, enjoyment, entertainment, frolic, fun, merriment, pastime, pleasure, recreation

    Antonyms:
    ennui, fatigue, labor, lassitude, toil, weariness, work

How to say sport in sign language?

How to use sport in a sentence?

  1. Wade Oosterman:

    The reason people sponsor sport is to connect to the ideals of sport, it's the joy of the game, it's competition, it's integrity and fair play, it's all those positive attributes - and thank God the Women's World Cup represents those in spades.

  2. Susan Shalabi:

    The idea that sport and politics do not mix is ridiculous. It’s like a child repeating, I am not afraid, I am not afraid, I am not afraid. If you keep repeating something, it’s not because you believe it but because you want to convince yourself it is true.”

  3. Roger Federer:

    I am very blessed to be able to play tennis, the sport that I love and very grateful for the opportunities to play in the finals of big events, when the season starts you are on the roll constantly and obliged to be committed to daily routines on and off the court.

  4. Red Bull principal Christian Horner:

    They don’t want to be in this position. They want to be in F1 to compete and they want to win, they don’t want to be in the situation that they are, so of course that is not going to come for free, renault Sport chairman Jerome Stoll recognizes that and Renault Sport seem committed to finding a solution.

  5. The California-born Pruett:

    Daytona is a magical place for me and I love it, i’ve always said the Rolex 24 at Daytona is like the Super Bowl of Motorsports because you’re bringing the best of the best from all over the world and the challenge of both man and machine is fierce. What better way to say goodbye to the sport I love than at this revered place, surrounded by my respected peers and die-hard fans.
