English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. tidy

    That which is clean is simply free from soil or defilement of any kind. Things are orderly when in due relation to other things; a room or desk is orderly when every article is in place; a person is orderly who habitually keeps things so. Tidy denotes that which conforms to propriety in general; an unlaced shoe may be perfectly clean, but is not tidy. Neat refers to that which is clean and tidy with nothing superfluous, conspicuous, or showy, as when we speak of plain but neat attire; the same idea of freedom from the superfluous appears in the phrases "a neat speech," "a neat turn," "a neat reply," etc. A clean cut has no ragged edges; a neat stroke just does what is intended. Nice is stronger than neat, implying value and beauty; a cheap, coarse dress may be perfectly neat, but would not be termed nice. Spruce is applied to the show and affectation of neatness with a touch of smartness, and is always a term of mild contempt; as, a spruce serving man. Trim denotes a certain shapely and elegant firmness, often with suppleness and grace; as, a trim suit; a trim figure. Prim applies to a precise, formal, affected nicety. Dapper is spruce with the suggestion of smallness and slightness; natty, a diminutive of neat, suggests minute elegance, with a tendency toward the exquisite; as, a dapper little fellow in a natty business suit.

    Synonyms:
    clean, cleanly, dapper, natty, neat, nice, orderly, prim, spruce, trim

    Antonyms:
    dirty, disorderly, dowdy, negligent, rough, rude, slouchy, slovenly, soiled, uncared for, unkempt, untidy

How to use tidy in a sentence?

  1. The Argentine pontiff:

    They wrote a speech for me to give you. But speeches are boring, make a mess, but then also help to tidy it up. A mess which gives us a free heart, a mess which gives us solidarity, a mess which gives us hope.

  2. Joni Eareckson Tada:

    One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.

  3. Tom Robbins, _Skinny Legs and All_, 1990, p. 305.:

    ...to emphasize the afterlife is to deny life. To concentrate on Heaven is to create hell. In their desperate longing to transcend the disorderliness, friction, and unpredictability that pesters life; in their desire for a fresh start in a tidy habitat, germ-free and secured by angels, religious multitudes are gambling the only life they may ever have on a dark horse in a race that has no finish line."

  4. Adrian Toole:

    We are looking into taking legal action against EA - not of course to exhume and re-organize the burial, that's done - but to make sure we secure a leading role in planning for a future memorial, eA are clearly on a corporate strategy to 'tidy up' the remaining issues so as to get the whole episode out of the public eye.

  5. Hugh Young:

    It would have been a bloody big job to move. And until the UK government started attacking the likes of HSBC, they didn't have any desire to move, the tax concessions are a good thing. What Gulliver needs to do now is tidy up the bank.
