English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. surname

    Name in the most general sense, signifying the word by which a person or thing is called or known, includes all other words of this group; in this sense every noun is a name; in the more limited sense a name is personal, an appellation is descriptive, a title is official. In the phrase William the Conqueror, King of England, William is the man's name, which belongs to him personally, independently of any rank or achievement; Conqueror is the appellation which he won by his acquisition of England; King is the title denoting his royal rank. An epithet (Greek epitheton, something added, from epi, on, and tithemi, put) is something placed upon a person or thing; the epithet does not strictly belong to an object like a name, but is given to mark some assumed characteristic, good or bad; an epithet is always an adjective, or a word or phrase used as an adjective, and is properly used to emphasize a characteristic but not to add information, as in the phrase "the sounding sea;" the idea that an epithet is always opprobrious, and that any word used opprobriously is an epithet is a popular error. Designation may be used much in the sense of appellation, but is more distinctive or specific in meaning; a designation properly so called rests upon some inherent quality, while an appellation may be fanciful. Among the Romans the prenomen was the individual part of a man's name, the "nomen" designated the gens to which he belonged, the cognomen showed his family and was borne by all patricians, and the agnomen was added to refer to his achievements or character. When scientists name an animal or a plant, they give it a binary or binomial technical name comprising a generic and a specific appellation. In modern use, a personal name, as John or Mary, is given in infancy, and is often called the given name or Christian name, or simply the first name (rarely the prenomen); the cognomen or surname is the family name which belongs to one by right of birth or marriage. Style is the legal designation by which a person or house is known in official or business relations; as, the name and style of Baring Brothers. The term denomination is applied to a separate religious organization, without the opprobrious meaning attaching to the word "sect;" also, to designate any class of like objects collectively, especially money or notes of a certain value; as, the sum was in notes of the denomination of one thousand dollars. Compare TERM.

How to use surname in a sentence?

  1. Errors in the statement of the thesis:

    Stamps, cliches. It is necessary to throw out hackneyed phrases from the text, such as: I was born ... / from childhood I strove to become ..., My mission is to make peace in the whole world, ... is my vocation - they make the text unoriginal, stale. Arguments Any statement must be based on a foundation. The basis for the thesis is the arguments. One paragraph should be allocated to one argument and examples. Examples include personal experience and, if applicable, links to statistics, forecasts, research. However, usually in a job application essay, you need to concentrate on your own professional experience. Errors in argumentation Argument repetition. Arguments should be varied - you cannot build a proof on one argument. Inconsistency. Only those thoughts that have already been expressed in the text should be argued, and examples should be given strictly to the corresponding arguments. Conclusion The purpose of the conclusion is to summarize the reasoning. The using college essay writing service reddit - it's better in this matter. To do this, you need to briefly reformulate the thesis, if it was at the beginning of the work, or put it, if the author decided to place it after the arguments. Errors in conclusion New arguments. The conclusion sums up the reasoning, not develops it. There is no place for new information in the conclusion. Retelling of the text. There is no need to describe the structure of the written work and literally repeat what was written above - if the reader has reached the conclusion, then he has already read it all. List of sources In the essay, you can add a list of sources (references) - this is a list of materials to which the author refers in his work. Such a list will be appropriate in an essay, where the author often refers to various works, scientific research, statistics, statements of authoritative experts. To register a source, you need to indicate the name and surname of the author, the name of the source, the year of publication and an electronic link, if necessary.

  2. Keiko Fujimori:

    In 2021, there will be no (presidential) candidate with the Fujimori surname.

  3. Mikhail Podoliak:

    As usual, mandatory anonymous retirees -- and this is key -- confirm something. Another anonymous source denies something. Once again : anonymous, without a surname, without a position and, therefore, sources that have no informational and reputational value.

  4. Maria Grazia Chiuri:

    It gives me great joy to be here tonight to honor Maria Grazia and Chiuri and Pierpaolo .?.?. Oh, I don’t know how to say your surname, it’s so difficult.
