English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. stupid

    That is absurd which is contrary to the first principles of reasoning; as, that a part should be greater than the whole is absurd. A paradoxical statement appears at first thought contradictory or absurd, while it may be really true. Anything is irrational when clearly contrary to sound reason, foolish when contrary to practical good sense, silly when petty and contemptible in its folly, erroneous when containing error that vitiates the result, unreasonable when there seems a perverse bias or an intent to go wrong. Monstrous and preposterous refer to what is overwhelmingly absurd; as, "O monstrous! eleven buckram men grown out of two," Shakespeare 1 King Henry IV, act ii, sc. 4. The ridiculous or the nonsensical is worthy only to be laughed at. The lunatic's claim to be a king is ridiculous; the Mother Goose rimes are nonsensical. Compare INCONGRUOUS.

    Synonyms:
    absurd, anomalous, chimerical, erroneous, false, foolish, ill-advised, ill-considered, ill-judged, inconclusive, incorrect, infatuated, irrational, ludicrous, mistaken, monstrous, nonsensical, paradoxical, preposterous, ridiculous, senseless, unreasonable, wild

    Antonyms:
    certain, consistent, demonstrable, demonstrated, established, incontestable, incontrovertible, indisputable, indubitable, infallible, logical, rational, reasonable, sagacious, sensible, sound, substantial, true, undeniable, unquestionable, wise

How to use stupid in a sentence?

  1. Jules Polonetsky:

    They've gone from interesting new startup product to part of the global infrastructure in days. And I think the many gaps in maturity are becoming painfully clear, some of them range from just stupid stuff that maybe doesn't create risk to most users, to other things that are going to create legal liability for them.

  2. Terry Pratchett, Feet of Clay:

    Stupid men are often capable of things the clever would not dare to contemplate...

  3. John Stuart Mill:

    Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.

  4. Bianca (Mae Whitman) movie written by Kody Keplinger:

    you used to make me so upset, but now I just feel bad for you. Yeah, I'm somebody's DUFF. Guess what, so are you. So is everybody. There's always gonna be somebody prettier or more talented or richer than you, but it shouldn't affect how you see yourself. You label everybody to try to keep them down, but you end up missing out on all this great stuff around you. You have Wesley, and you treat him like he's stupid, but he isn't. And people don't like him because he's with you. They like him because he's, like, an amazing guy. Look, I like myself. I wouldn't wanna be anybody else. And I realize now that none of this matters to me. But it does to you. It's your dream. And I totally support that. Just don't tear me down for not giving a shit about your labels, because in the end, they're meaningless.

  5. Justice Antonin Scalia:

    Maybe the legislature and the president are not as stupid as you think, they assuredly picked those people because of who they are and when they get to the court they remain who they were.
