English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. succinct

    Anything short or brief is of relatively small extent. That which is concise (Latin con-, with, together, and cædo, cut) is trimmed down, and that which is condensed (Latin con-, with, together, and densus, thick) is, as it were, pressed together, so as to include as much as possible within a small space. That which is compendious (Latin com-, together, and pendo, weigh) gathers the substance of a matter into a few words, weighty and effective. The succinct (Latin succinctus, from sub-, under, and cingo, gird; girded from below) has an alert effectiveness as if girded for action. The summary is compacted to the utmost, often to the point of abruptness; as, we speak of a summary statement or a summary dismissal. That which is terse (Latin tersus, from tergo, rub off) has an elegant and finished completeness within the smallest possible compass, as if rubbed or polished down to the utmost. A sententious style is one abounding in sentences that are singly striking or memorable, apart from the context; the word may be used invidiously of that which is pretentiously oracular. A pithy utterance gives the gist of a matter effectively, whether in rude or elegant style.

    brief, compact, compendious, concise, condensed, laconic, neat, pithy, sententious, short, terse
