synonym for very


adverb [ em-uh-nuhnt-lee ]

eminently is another word for very

The adverbs very and eminently both indicate that an action is performed or a relation exists to a high degree. But the adverb eminently, close in meaning to notably, often connotes prominence and esteem. Consider the adjective eminent: a person who is eminent is high in rank or distinguished, as an eminent diplomat. An eminent quality is one that is conspicuous or noteworthy, as in eminent fairness. An eminent feature is one that is protruding or projecting, as eminent rock formations. The common theme of prominence, or standing out, carries over to the adverb eminently. Those who are eminently qualified exhibit a degree of qualifications that set them apart.

Commonly found as

eminently qualified
The new owner is eminently qualified to lead the company to greatness.
eminently fair
The reporter was eminently fair in her retelling of events.

synonym for enjoy


verb [ rel-ish ]

relish is another word for enjoy

The verbs enjoy and relish are close in meaning, but relish has far more flavor. To relish something is to enjoy it with marked appreciation or keen delight. Consider the noun relish, a condiment that one adds to a dish to impart flavor and—we hope—enhance enjoyment. The idea of savoring a special taste or flavor carries over to the verb, even when the tastes and flavors are figurative rather than literal. When someone relishes an experience, for instance, they are making a point to appreciate the distinctive aspects (flavors) of that particular encounter or activity.

Commonly found as

relish the opportunity
The professor relished the opportunity to hear other experts in the field discuss his work.
seem to relish
Rather than shy away from it, the politician seemed to relish the spotlight.

adjective [ non-puh-rel ]

nonpareil is another word for unique

When something is unique, it is one of a kind. When something is one of a kind because it is truly better than the rest, it is nonpareil. The adjective nonpareil means "having no equal; peerless," and it suggests exceptional quality or skill. A nonpareil singer, for instance, is one so proficient, they stand alone in their class. Nonpareil can also be used as a noun to refer to a person or thing having no equal, and, in the plural, to those colorful sprinkles that top various kinds of sweet treats, making them just a little better than the rest.
