English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. swift

    Nimble refers to lightness, freedom, and quickness of motion within a somewhat narrow range, with readiness to turn suddenly to any point; swift applies commonly to more sustained motion over greater distances; a pickpocket is nimble-fingered, a dancer nimble-footed; an arrow, a race-horse, or an ocean steamer is swift; Shakespeare's "nimble lightnings" is said of the visual appearance in sudden zigzag flash across the sky. Figuratively, we speak of nimble wit, swift intelligence, swift destruction. Alert, which is strictly a synonym for ready, comes sometimes near the meaning of nimble or quick, from the fact that the ready, wide-awake person is likely to be lively, quick, speedy. Compare ACTIVE; ALERT.

    active, agile, alert, brisk, bustling, lively, nimble, prompt, quick, speedy, sprightly, spry

    As we have always maintained, and as the Attorney General has now confirmed, the original accusations that Planned Parenthood 'sold fetal tissue' were completely unfounded and untrue, these new allegations by the Attorney General that we are improperly disposing of fetal tissue are flat-out false.

If they are not, then I will take swift action.

  5. Labour Kellie Leitch:
