English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. trick

    A contrivance or device may be either good or bad. A cheat is a mean advantage in a bargain; a fraud, any form of covert robbery or injury. Imposture is a deceitful contrivance for securing charity, credit, or consideration. A stratagem or maneuver may be of the good against the bad, as it were a skilful movement of war. A wile is usually but not necessarily evil.

    E'en children followed with endearing wile.

    Goldsmith Deserted Village, l. 184.

    A trick is often low, injurious, and malicious; we say a mean trick; the word is sometimes used playfully with less than its full meaning. A ruse or a blind may be quite innocent and harmless. An artifice is a carefully and delicately prepared contrivance for doing indirectly what one could not well do directly. A device is something studied out for promoting an end, as in a mechanism; the word is used of indirect action, often, but not necessarily directed to an evil, selfish, or injurious end. Finesse is especially subtle contrivance, delicate artifice, whether for good or evil. Compare FRAUD.

    Synonyms:
    art, artifice, blind, cheat, contrivance, craft, cunning, device, dodge, finesse, fraud, guile, imposture, invention, machination, maneuver, ruse, stratagem, subterfuge, wile

    Antonyms:
    artlessness, candor, fairness, frankness, guilelessness, honesty, ingenuousness, innocence, openness, simplicity, sincerity, truth

How to use trick in a sentence?

  1. Mohsin Ali Shaukat:

    Leader Vs Malevolent “When people with bad intentions try to enter in your inner universe, in their heart they know who you really are !! and who they are actually, these small minds are insecure because they know your qualities and capabilities so what trick they play is, just because they came in your life, spent time with you, they know your weak points as no body is perfect and they also know that you are a winner with great mind and ideas and can perform better even if they have known what's in your mind they can not do that the way you can do, then they try to come from some other ways and you show through your attitude by winning again and again, by not losing your faith in you and your abilities that you are unstoppable... This is what makes them disappoint, the sad part of the picture is, you are the one with the good intentions whatever you are but you never think bad of anyone, not even for those who don't want to see you happy or successful, you just kept going even they chase you. So be in the picture, stay on the right track with good intention and keep going, if it's in their nature that they have been chasing you, they will always be chasing you ..... YOU are a leader YOU are a person with great personality YOU are the one, people think of and spend time and energy to know about you, and wish to be like you but you are busy in your life, you don't have time for small things KEEP GOING !!”

    Growing up here in New York,( Donald Trump) has always been a part of the culture of New York, donald Trump reflects the old New York, a three card monte player who would be at Times Square hustling people playing the three card monte trick, and Mike Pence is the guy who's in on it but who acts like Mike Pence's just there getting Mike Pence money stolen.

  5. The DPP:

    I know Xi Jinping is working very hard to make a circle before she (Tsai) takes office - to get her to stand inside the circle, that is the trick you have to avoid. There is no such thing as the maintenance of a status quo.
