English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sure

    That is authentic which is true to the facts; that is genuine which is true to its own claims; as, authentic history; genuine money.

    A 'genuine' work is one written by the author whose name it bears; an 'authentic' work is one which relates truthfully the matters of which it treats. For example, the apocryphal Gospel of St. Thomas is neither 'genuine' nor 'authentic.' It is not 'genuine,' for St. Thomas did not write it; it is not 'authentic,' for its contents are mainly fables and lies.

How to use sure in a sentence?

  1. Ty Burrell:

    I think there's definitely room for a spin-off, it wouldn't be our family. To me, the most logical one is Mitch and Cam. I don't know any details about that, but I could see a spin-off with them or with Hailey and Dylan for sure. I think it's logical. It wouldn't be a stretch and it wouldn't be inorganic, I don't think.

  2. Anthony Blackburn:

    I had my phone out, you know, videotaping the whole thing 'cause we've been hearing on the news about police brutality, i just wanted to film it and just make sure everything was alright. But I ended up seeing a tragedy.

  3. Carreys Biden:

    I'm sure Saturday Night Live will be peaceful, no matter who has won, though, it's never a good sign when Walmart stops selling guns.

  4. Dominic Cummings:

    I don't think any of the other people who filled out the form have any psychic powers, but I'm not 100% sure.

  5. Mike Gallagher:

    We originally got the authorization passed, and then we got the bill passed that authorizes a place on the Mall. Now, we have to do the hard work of continuing to raise money and to make sure that the project moves forward, as you can see, it's a great group of veterans, people who have been involved in the legislative process. And I think it's a testament that it's been truly a bipartisan effort.
