English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. student

    The primary sense of a scholar is one who is being schooled; thence the word passes to denote one who is apt in school work, and finally one who is thoroughly schooled, master of what the schools can teach, an erudite, accomplished person: when used without qualification, the word is generally understood in this latter sense; as, he is manifestly a scholar. Pupil signifies one under the close personal supervision or instruction of a teacher or tutor. Those under instruction in schools below the academic grade are technically and officially termed pupils. The word pupil is uniformly so used in the Reports of the Commissioner of Education of the United States, but popular American usage prefers scholar in the original sense; as, teachers and scholars enjoyed a holiday. Those under instruction in Sunday-schools are uniformly designated as Sunday-school scholars. Student is applied to those in the higher grades or courses of study, as the academic, collegiate, scientific, etc. Student suggests less proficiency than scholar in the highest sense, the student being one who is learning, the scholar one who has learned. On the other hand, student suggests less of personal supervision than pupil; thus, the college student often becomes the private pupil of some instructor in special studies. For disciple, etc., compare synonyms for ADHERENT.

    Synonyms:
    disciple, learner, pupil, savant, scholar

How to use student in a sentence?

  1. Ken Cuccinelli:

    We're not forcing universities to reopen, however, if a university... if they don't reopen this semester, there isn't a reason for a person holding a student visa to be present in the country. They should go home. Then they can return when the school opens. That's what student visas are for, and we want to accommodate that for schools, and we're working hard to do that.

  2. Uvalde Police Department -RRB- McCraw:

    Several times. We had one teacher who said she was always worried about him, he was the one student who scared her most. We discussed, as I mentioned earlier, last year he started dressing like a school shooter, started acting like a school shooter.

  3. Ted Deutch:

    The fact is that the families and the student survivors from Stoneman Douglas have spent the past almost nine months forcing this issue into the center of the political debate, that's why you've seen so many ads. That's why you've seen marches not just in Washington but all around the country. And that's why so many of my soon-to-be former colleagues were defeated because, for years, they thought that they could ignore arguments from families and gun safety advocates and sit back and comfortable receive gun company money, and think they would be protected.

  4. Lahav Shani:

    I (listened) to the orchestra with the maestro (Mehta) many times as a child, when I was a student, I learned from the musicians in the orchestra. They were my teachers for chamber music (and) double bass.

  5. Stephen Vazquez:

    We enrolled 72 yesterday, she said. Some arrive alone. Each new student costs the district roughly $ 28,000 – an unbudgeted expense of more than $ 70 million, say school officials. It's like adding two elementary schools to our population that we were unable to plan for and project, Pace said. Osceola County is waiting on answers for state and national funding. Even before the storm, Puerto Ricans were fleeing a debt-ridden economy – at the pace of 80,000 a year from an island whose population is just 3.5 million. But now that flight has turned desperate. Half a million Puerto Ricans are expected to come to Florida in the next four years to join the one million already in the state. Mirbelys LaJara and Mirbelys LaJara two daughters are Hurricane Maria victims from Puerto Rico. My children don't have school, don't have work, I don't have nothing, Mirbelys LaJara said. The exodus from Hurricane Maria has added to what already has been in influx of Puerto Ricans in the Orlando area of central Central Florida and students in Orange County district in recent years. And more are expected from the ravaged island, where widespread power outages are continuing and many still lack running water. Here students at Riverdale Elementary School, in Orlando, Central Florida receive supplies. ( Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.) Eight weeks after the hurricane, much of Puerto Rico remains without power, internet or phone service. Many also lack running water. Stephen Vazquez grew specialty hot peppers and cilantro. I'm kind of stuck in the air, you know, i produce hydroponically as well so without light, water issues, I can't even really produce. A farmer without light or water who has come to Orlando with two pairs of pants and a shirt. Starting from zero.
