Examples of synonymous in a Sentence

  1. Derek Hudson:

    How do they break apart from [Hefner]? What do they do? We’ve seen some of this commentary in their statements, but still, advertisers seeing these accusations think of Hefner whenever the term Playboy is brought up. They’re synonymous. At some point, they’re really going to have to do a hard break for Hefner.

  2. Toby Perkins:

    It has often seemed incongruous to me that when England has played against other home nations on the football or rugby field, that while the Welsh or Scots sing an anthem that reflects their nation's identity, England should sing about Britain, it reflects the sense that we see Britain and England as synonymous and this not only denies us English an opportunity to celebrate the nation that is being represented but is also a cause for resentment among other countries within the British isles who feel that England have requisitioned the British song.

  3. The Berkeley:

    This will be synonymous with Gilroy and that's not fair, this was their thing. It just ruined the legacy of a small town.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Grace is simply, a free and unmerited favour from God. Permit me to tell you that, grace is synonymous with destiny. In the sense that, it's also a God-given gift and which is meant to be realized and utilized within a given period of time just like destiny otherwise, it will surely elapse/decline/subside or even lost outrightly. Oh! Yes, God's grace is just for a while and never forever. So, you've got to acknowledge/appreciate/utilize/maximize it (God's grace) to the fullest. Unless you want it to be withdrawn/taken away from you sooner than you even expect it. And mind you, if/when God's grace is taken away/withdrawn from you. Believe me or don't, you're as good as done for, until it's restored back to you. Because, living without God's grace is like trying to live/survive without God himself. And I guess, you know what that entails don't you?

  5. Benjamin Disraeli:

    That we may live to see England once more possess a free Monarchy and a privileged and prosperous People, is my Prayer; that these great consequences can only be brought about by the energy and devotion of our Youth is my persuasion. We live in an age when to be young and to be indifferent can be no longer synonymous. We must prepare for the coming hour. The claims of the Future are represented by suffering millions; and the Youth of a Nation are the trustees of Posterity.
