English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. story

    A story is the telling of some series of connected incidents or events, whether real or fictitious, in prose or verse, orally or in writing; or the series of incidents or events thus related may be termed a story. In children's talk, a story is a common euphemism for a falsehood. Tale is nearly synonymous with story, but is somewhat archaic; it is used for an imaginative, legendary, or fictitious recital, especially if of ancient date; as, a fairy tale; also, for an idle or malicious report; as, do not tell tales; "where there is no tale-bearer, the strife ceaseth." Prov. xxvi, 20. An anecdote tells briefly some incident, assumed to be fact. If it passes close limits of brevity, it ceases to be an anecdote, and becomes a narrative or narration. A traditional or mythical story of ancient times is a legend. A history is often somewhat poetically called a story; as, the story of the American civil war. Compare ALLEGORY; FICTION; HISTORY.

    Synonyms:
    account, anecdote, incident, legend, myth, narration, narrative, novel, recital, record, relation, tale

How to use story in a sentence?

  1. Stanley Litow:

    You see transformational activities in education that have taken place from time to time in the U.S. Like the end of the Second World War, for instance, they made high school mandatory, which opened up that option for a large number of students. It was transformative and led partially to America’s preeminence in the 20th century, i think the story of these six kids graduating now brings it home. Overwhelmingly it’s the children of color, who come from low-income backgrounds who a lot of people are not betting on.

  2. Conrad Vernon:

    Greg and I have always been a fan of the Addams Family in past versions, so when we set out to make this movie, we were excited to do something new, with that in mind, I drew from the brilliantly original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons for the look of the film and decided to tell the story of how Gomez and Morticia meet, find their house and start their family. This unique approach is what drew me in to direct the film. The reimagining also extends to the stellar cast we’ve put together who will each bring their own spin to our film that will appeal to longtime fans of the Addams and introduce them to a new generation.

  3. Teri Hatcher:

    They said they were going to run this story about me being broke, and I think they even used the word suicidal and homeless and whatever, and my lawyer and my publicist said, ‘Categorically not true, you can’t print that, she’s doing a YouTube show, that’s her van, she has many homes in many states all over the country. There’s nothing about this that’s true.’.

  4. Jeanette Seaver:

    We find it critical to hear more than one side of a story and more importantly, not to squelch a writer's right to be heard, when speakers are shouted down or even assaulted on campuses simply for having a different point of view, journalists are banned from press conferences and truth is too often dismissed as 'fake news,' we as publishers prefer to give voice to a respected writer and filmmaker, rather than bow to the politically correct pressures of the modern world.

  5. Jeff Arnett:

    The story of the barrel is one of the overlooked crafts of whiskey-making.
