English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. stranger(n)

    A naturalized citizen is not an alien, though a foreigner by birth, and perhaps a stranger in the place where he resides. A person of foreign birth not naturalized is an alien, though he may have been resident in the country a large part of a lifetime, and ceased to be a stranger to its people or institutions. He is an alien in one country if his allegiance is to another. The people of any country still residing in their own land are, strictly speaking, foreigners to the people of all other countries, rather than aliens; but alien and foreigner are often used synonymously.

    Synonyms:
    alien, alien, foreigner

    Antonyms:
    citizen, countryman, fellow-countryman, native, native-born inhabitant, naturalized person

    Preposition:
    Aliens to (more rarely from) our nation and laws; aliens in our land, among our people.
