English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. tilt

    To tilt or tip is to throw out of a horizontal position by raising one side or end or lowering the other; the words are closely similar, but tilt suggests more of fluctuation or instability. Slant and slope are said of things somewhat fixed or permanent in a position out of the horizontal or perpendicular; the roof slants, the hill slopes. Incline is a more formal word for tip, and also for slant or slope. To cant is to set slantingly; in many cases tip and cant might be interchanged, but tip is more temporary, often momentary; one tips a pail so that the water flows over the edge; a mechanic cants a table by making or setting one side higher than the other. A vessel careens in the wind; lists, usually, from shifting of cargo, from water in the hold, etc. Careening is always toward one side or the other; listing may be forward or astern as well. To heel over is the same as to careen, and must be distinguished from "keel over," which is to capsize.

    Synonyms:
    cant, careen, dip, heel over, incline, lean, list, slant, slope, tip

  4. Colleague Miro Voellmy:

    Tracks are excellent for this use case because they have a very large footprint, which makes it near impossible to tilt, and they are also very smooth so it doesn't feel like you're driving up stairs, so it just feels like you're driving up a ramp because they're so flat and they adapt to the stair profile. So it doesn't matter if the stair is wooden or metal or glass, the tracks they grip and there's no danger of slipping.
