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. Matt Damon:

    You guys did it here in one fell swoop and I wish that could happen in my country, but it’s such a personal issue for people that we cannot talk about it sensibly, people get so emotional that even when you make a suggestion about not selling AK-47s to people on terror watch lists, that’s a non-starter.

  2. Maya Cooper:

    We've have the suggestion that people should just have a liquid, they should take a pill to consume all the vitamins and minerals that they need, the issue with that is that there's a psychological experience that comes with eating. And people don't want to take all their meals through a straw, they don't want to swallow a pill for all their nutrition, and the pill wouldn't be as bioavailable as the food itself. So it's necessary, in terms of the human experience, that people eat.

  3. Pearse Doherty:

    The suggestion is that our regulation is a lot tighter and that is true for the banks but it is not true for the IFSC, we need a proper open debate about what kind of investment strategy do we want. There is no point doing this when things go belly up, if things go belly up, because that is what will happen.

  4. Buckingham Palace:

    CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP The court papers also include a photograph that has been in circulation since 2015 showing Andrew with his arm around Giuffres bare waist in London in 2001. Giuffre said she was 17 at the time the photo was taken. Photo from 2001 that was included in court files released last week shows Prince Andrew with his arm around the waist of 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre who says Jeffrey Epstein paid her to have sex with the prince. Andrew has denied the charges. In the background is Epstein's girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. (U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals) Buckingham Palace has previously denied allegationsthe prince had sex with Giuffre, and told The Sun that Andrew was not a party to the U.S. proceedings in which his name had appeared and denied any illegality had occurred. Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.

  5. Jonas Baer-Hoffmann:

    We are very conscious that this is a reflection of a problem in broader society than and there is no suggestion that it is more severe for our members, footballers are more similar to average society than most people think, and that is simply because of the misconceptions about how players live.
