English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. turbid

    That is obscure which the eye or the mind can not clearly discern or see through, whether because of its own want of transparency, its depth or intricacy, or because of mere defect of light. That which is complicated is likely to be obscure, but that may be obscure which is not at all complicated and scarcely complex, as a muddy pool. In that which is abstruse (Latin abs, from, and trudo, push) as if removed from the usual course of thought or out of the way of apprehension or discovery, the thought is remote, hidden; in that which is obscure there may be nothing to hide; it is hard to see to the bottom of the profound, because of its depth, but the most shallow turbidness is obscure. Compare COMPLEX; DARK; DIFFICULT; MYSTERIOUS.

How to use turbid in a sentence?

  1. Gavin Naylor:

    They are archetypal, typical looking sharks like a great reef or bull shark. They sort of look like that but they have tiny little eyes and big broad fins, these are adaption for living in very turbid water. If you have a look where these things live, the visibility is about an inch. It’s completely muddy water.

  2. Carl Jung:

    The wine of youth does not always clear with advancing years; sometimes it grows turbid.
