English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. suggestion

    A suggestion (Latin sub, under, and gero, bring) brings something before the mind less directly than by formal or explicit statement, as by a partial statement, an incidental allusion, an illustration, a question, or the like. Suggestion is often used of an unobtrusive statement of one's views or wishes to another, leaving consideration and any consequent action entirely to his judgment, and is hence, in many cases, the most respectful way in which one can convey his views to a superior or a stranger. A suggestion may be given unintentionally, and even unconsciously, as when we say an author has "a suggestive style." An intimation is a suggestion in brief utterance, or sometimes by significant act, gesture, or token, of one's meaning or wishes; in the latter case it is often the act of a superior; as, God in his providence gives us intimations of his will. A hint is still more limited in expression, and is always covert, but frequently with good intent; as, to give one a hint of danger or of opportunity. Insinuation and innuendo are used in the bad sense; an insinuation is a covert or partly veiled injurious utterance, sometimes to the very person attacked; an innuendo is commonly secret as well as sly, as if pointing one out by a significant nod (Latin in, in, to, and nuo, nod).

    Synonyms:
    hint, implication, innuendo, insinuation, intimation

How to use suggestion in a sentence?

  1. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders:

    So my suggestion is, I think one of the reasons Donald Trump has been able to move so far to the right is that there is no primary opposition to Donald Trump, and I think it would do this country a good deal of service if people started thinking about candidates out there to begin contrasting what is a progressive agenda as opposed to what President Obama is doing, i think one of the reasons that President Obama has moved as far to the right as President Obama has is President Obama thinks President Obama can go all the way and no one will stand up to President Obama.

  2. Lena Masri:

    It was at the direction of the airlines that she began coordinating with the other flight attendant on duty so that when a passenger requested alcohol, the other flight attendant would accommodate that request, we know that this arrangement has worked beautifully and without incident and that it hasn't caused any undue burden on the airline.

  3. Barack Obama:

  4. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi:

    I have always said that, in the dispute related to the land acquisition law, the government is open minded, i am willing to accept any suggestion for the benefit of farmers.
