English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. thought

    Idea is in Greek a form or an image. The word signified in early philosophical use the archetype or primal image which the Platonic philosophy supposed to be the model or pattern that existing objects imperfectly embody. This high sense has nearly disappeared from the word idea, and has been largely appropriated by ideal, tho something of the original meaning still appears when in theological or philosophical language we speak of the ideas of God. The present popular use of idea makes it to signify any product of mental apprehension or activity, considered as an object of knowledge or thought; this coincides with the primitive sense at but a single point — that an idea is mental as opposed to anything substantial or physical; thus, almost any mental product, as a belief, conception, design, opinion, etc., may now be called an idea. Compare FANCY; IDEAL.

    Synonyms:
    apprehension, archetype, belief, conceit, concept, conception, design, fancy, fantasy, idea, ideal, image, imagination, impression, judgment, model, notion, opinion, pattern, plan, purpose, sentiment, supposition, theory

    Antonyms:
    actuality, fact, reality, substance

How to use thought in a sentence?

  1. Leora Arnowitz:

    In the final scene, you can see me dancing right beside Leora Arnowitz, and a few days later was when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the engagement. So we filmed that, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took all our phones and everything, there were police on set, and I thought ‘ this was not normal, ’ and sure enough it was because of [ the engagement ].

  2. Bob Gale:

    We thought about it when we made the movie! Are you kidding? you watch Part II again and there's a scene where Marty confronts Biff in his office and there's a huge portrait of Biff on the wall behind Biff, and there's one moment where Biff kind of stands up and he takes exactly the same pose as the portrait? Yeah.

  3. Adam Mackasek:

    We don't want people to feel like they know what they're going to see. It challenges us not to take the safe route, no one ever thought they would see a dragon land in a bird's nest. No one expected a digital pop group dance on stage with an actual pop group.

  4. Ron Rutland:

    I thought it was a joke, in the rehearsals, he did things like that.
