English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. tale

    Account carries the idea of a commercial summary. A statement is definite, confined to essentials and properly to matters within the personal knowledge of the one who states them; as, an ante-mortem statement. A narrative is a somewhat extended and embellished account of events in order of time, ordinarily with a view to please or entertain. A description gives especial scope to the pictorial element. A report (Latin re, back, and porto, bring), as its etymology implies, is something brought back, as by one sent to obtain information, and may be concise and formal or highly descriptive and dramatic. Compare ALLEGORY; HISTORY; RECORD.

How to use tale in a sentence?

  1. Paul Feyerabend:

    Knowledge is not a series of self-consistent theories that converges toward an ideal view; it is rather an ever increasing ocean of mutually incompatible (and perhaps even incommensurable) alternatives, each single theory, each fairy tale, each myth that is part of the collection forcing the others into greater articulation and all of them contributing, via this process of competition, to the development of our consciousness.

  2. Stephen Councill:

    Lewis Carroll could not have told a more bizarre tale.

  3. Hillary Clinton:

    The show has prompted important conversation about women's rights and autonomy. In 'The Handmaid's Tale,' women's rights are gradually, slowly stripped away. As one character says, 'We didn't look up from our phones until it was too late,' it's not too late for us, but we have to encourage the millions of women and men who support Planned Parenthood's mission to keep fighting.

  4. Marshall Trimble:

    Someone keeps swearing to me that in Arizona it's illegal to have sex with a rodeo clown in an elevator on Tuesdays, it's a tall tale of course, but they're told as truth.

  5. Peter Kent:

    His ordeal is a cautionary tale to any investor who thinks the Cuban playing field is level.
