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. Christopher Paolini, Author of Eragon and Eldest. Quote from Eragon:

    You can't argue with all of the fools in the world. It's easier to let them have their way, then trick them when they're not paying attention.

  2. Erin Perrine:

    We have publicly condemned any group that misuses President Trump's likeness, or otherwise implies an affiliation with Donald Trump reelection campaign, in order to confuse people and mislead donors, it is dishonest to trick people into thinking they are directly supporting the President's re-election when they are not.

  3. Phyllis Diller:

  4. Darrell Issa:

    If you can't trust what he says, and what he says he'll do, to get votes and trick the American people into voting for something, then can you trust his analytics? it is our job to see that the administration is working to run the country and that they are reporting honestly their successes and their failures.

  5. Editor Curtis Houck:

    She painted leftists as somehow victims in all this, which is such a tiresome trick the left plays when people they don't like are in power. The image she paints of anyone who's not in her camp is one of brutality and violence that's such a tired trope yet it's actually dangerous. She's advocating for a more dramatic return to tribalism and that'll do nothing to cool the temperature of our discourse.
