English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. tediousness

    Circumlocution and periphrasis are roundabout ways of expressing thought; circumlocution is the more common, periphrasis the more technical word. Constant circumlocution produces an affected and heavy style; occasionally, skilful periphrasis conduces both to beauty and to simplicity. Etymologically, diffuseness is a scattering, both of words and thought; redundancy is an overflow. Prolixity goes into endless petty details, without selection or perspective. Pleonasm is the expression of an idea already plainly implied; tautology is the restatement in other words of an idea already stated, or a useless repetition of a word or words. Pleonasm may add emphasis; tautology is always a fault. "I saw it with my eyes" is a pleonasm; "all the members agreed unanimously" is tautology. Verbiage is the use of mere words without thought. Verbosity and wordiness denote an excess of words in proportion to the thought. Tediousness is the sure result of any of these faults of style.

    Synonyms:
    circumlocution, diffuseness, periphrasis, pleonasm, prolixity, redundance, redundancy, surplusage, tautology, verbiage, verbosity, wordiness

    Antonyms:
    brevity, compactness, compression, conciseness, condensation, directness, plainness, shortness, succinctness, terseness
