One Word Substitution Unique & The Most Helpful. OWS Part 17

In the realm of language proficiency assessments, mastering one word substitution (OWS) is pivotal, especially when preparing for exams such as the SSC, including the prestigious SSC CGL. From the foundational stages, like Class 3, students begin encountering these exercises, where a single word stands in for more complex concepts. As learners progress, they compile a growing list of one word substitutions to enhance their command over English. Examples of these one word substitutes abound, with terms like ‘cynosure’ highlighting the focal point and ‘ephemeral’ encapsulating fleeting moments. These exercises are not only integral for exams but also for broader linguistic proficiency in everyday English one word substitution scenarios. Embracing these substitutes provides an easy yet effective way to navigate the intricacies of language, ensuring a solid foundation for success in language assessments.

1602 PLENIPOTENTIARY a person with full discretinary power to act on behalf of a country According to Marcin Horala, the Polish government’s plenipotentiary responsible for overseeing the hub’s construction, it is one of the most important projects underway in central and eastern Europe for military and civilian use.

1603 DESCRATE to derive a thing of its holy character The other spelling, discrete, means “separate,” “distinct,” or “unconnected.” He leaned toward them and said, “In object-oriented programming, discrete software objects interfaced more freely, in a system of corporate service provision that mirrored the emergent structures of late capitalism.”
1604 CHIP a small piece of wood If the bars were made of wood, the planks would soften and become malleable; when I opened my eyes, the wood would be nothing but chips in a pile, to be used for kindling. “But I guess Aluminum Man isn’t appropriate either, since he’s also made of titanium, steel, plastic, various polymers, and silicon computer chips.”

He knew there were true dungeons down in the castle cellars”oubliettes and torture chambers and dank pits where huge black rats scrabbled in the darkness.
1608 TYPOGRAPHY science of printing There were the huge printing shops with their subeditors, their typography experts, and their elaborately equipped studios for the faking of photographs. “I learned about serif and sans-serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great,” he wrote.
1609 PLEONASM use of more words than are needed to express the meaning Technically speaking, that expression is a pleonasm”a redundant description”since all facts are, by definition, true. To call it ‘the will to live’ is therefore a pleonasm.
1610 PHRENOLOGY the science of judging of a person’s character capabilities etc. from an examination of the shape of his skull The problem with the relativists is that they explain bad science and good science, phrenology and nuclear physics, in exactly the same way”advocates of “the strong programme’ explicitly insist on this equivalence.

1611 YACHT a light sailing boat built especially for racing “It’s built to get out over the waves. It’s a ship-to-shore boat.

1615 LEGITIMATE responsible according to law Being Madoc’s legitimate daughter, she feels no pressure to please him. Funny, but no one has ever actually thought of me as a legitimate threat before.
1616 RESPLENDENT shining , brilliant and magnificent He is, instead, bathed dramatically in a sweeping and resplendent sunset, wearing a crisp black jacket and riding pants tucked into tall leather boots, looking every inch an actual fairy-tale prince. Even from afar, his lord father was resplendent.
1617 LITHOTOMY cutting for stone in the bladder The traditional lithotomy position forces Mom to work against gravity. Some writers have given directions for operating under such circumstances; but none of them tell us they have successfully performed lithotomy upon the animal.
1618 STUPOR a heavy unnatural slumber Dawkins has found a superlative”to render into a stupor, to make stupid”that still has the power to impress. Harriet was in a stupor most of the time, deaf to the laughter, the dancing and the singing, deaf to the clack of the bones, the beat of the juba.
1619 WHIP a person sharing responsibility for a political party’s discipline and tactics When he heard his name, Will whipped back around. Junior was a rotund little man with a cherubic face, who was as smart as a whip and liked all over the town.
1620 APPRENTICE a person who has just started learning On their orders, Royal apprenticed with a printer as soon as he was old enough to labor. Then at last it came time for the apprentice trials.

1623 VOLUPTUARY person who gives himself up to luxury and sexual pleasures Since 1896, Oscar Wilde’s “Salome” has provided opportunities for lush decadence ” and who could object? ” with its despotic voluptuary King Herod and the petulant title character. See More Videos » In paintings of odalisques, the often naked women lie across the image like unwrapped gifts, exquisitely available to the men who paint them and to the patrons who value such female voluptuaries.
1624 HARLOT a women of lax moral    
1625 DEPONENT a person who gives written testimony for use in a court Gubbins: I don’t know if that’s a real thing, but I do know that it is a common deponent practice to have to identify oneself in evidence they would be presented with. The papers state: “The deponent did enquire whether it was possible to meet personally with the defendant, but the deponent was told that this was not possible.”
1626 MILLINER a person who makes and sells ladies hats, etc. The next morning, we would hear reports of a milliner’s shop battered for importation, or an affray in a coffeehouse, gentlemen bruised, or a boy in a crowd shot mortally. “Yes’m. I’m Will Tweedy, ma’am. You must be the new milliner.”
1627 INTERCEDE to mediate between two parties in a dispute Kwang then leaned forward to offer one to him, but I interceded and poured a third shot from the bottle. Family friends interceded to make him the first colored student at one of the prestigious white colleges.
1628 GERIATRICS the branch of science which deals with the problems of the old A friend my age who is in medical school recently chose to specialize in geriatrics, and over drinks with some other doctors she was asked why. Some so-called “geriatrics” may recognize this exercise for what it is: Wax on, wax off.
1629 TRANSPARENCY a drawing on transparent paper He abandoned the noiseless transparencies and pointed at the center of the spreading rings like a setter. For Lutheran Pietists like Bach, illuminating the Gospel was paramount, as were metaphors of light and transparency.
1630 BOOR clumsy or ill-bred fellow “Yes it is,” said I, “because I cannot bear that people should say, “she throws away her graces and attractions on a mere boor, the lowest in the crowd.'” The mayor was a corrupt boor, the food turned your guts runny, but he held a good thought for them.
1631 BOUTIQUE a small shop that sells fashionable clothes, cosmetics etc. Beside the home bleachers, Ben and Mary Anne walked past les boutiques de Paris as “Moon River” was played by the band hired for the evening. Carrie had started a jewelry boutique with her trust and ran it for a number of years until it failed.
1632 HABITANT the normal abode of any animal or plant I didn’t have much time to examine the nest last night, but do think it is possible that the adults were the former habitants of the nest and, therefore, the eaglet’s parents. Frequent narration kept passengers’ attention amid the consistent beauty, exploring topics like the region’s original, Native habitants, European settlers, and modern-day attractions like Smith Tower.
1633 EXPIATE to atone one’s sins Middle-class white students expiating their guilt over the death of Martin Luther King”that was how many viewed the demonstrations. I keep it and rear it rather on the Roman Catholic principle of expiating numerous sins, great or small, by one good work.
1634 DESPOTISM the rule of a person who is tyrant Prison administration couldn’t help being a despotism, but it could be an enlightened one. Her gentle efforts to guide the hand of destiny, by decoying her master with fertile tricks or by reticent considerations these had not bean strong enough to be recognized in the despotism of fife.
1635 MONUMENTAL of outstanding significance The Caddo had a taste for monumental architecture: public plazas, ceremonial platforms, mausoleums. And the architecture…gods, the architecture”gilded marble columns, dazzling mosaics, monumental arches, and terraced villas.
1636 PEEL to remove the skin of a potato or and orange The bundle contained a whip as well”a nasty piece of old leather with a handle of brass and bone, stout enough to peel the hide off an ox. The sight of her and the scent of freshly peeled apples made me want to leap up and wrap her in the biggest hug.
1637 PROMISE explicit understanding to do something Grandpa didn’t exactly promise the job, but he said it shore would be nice if she could earn her keep, which may of been what Miss Love had in mind. We make our promises over a brimming cup of red wine and drink deeply from it.
1638 BESIEGE to surround with armed forces The social atmosphere is that of a besieged city, where the possession of a lump of horseflesh makes the difference between wealth and poverty. A similar cavalry charge of 26 horsemen routed the best troops of Emperor Manco himself, as he was besieging the Spaniards in Cuzco.
1639 EXTRAVASATE forcing out(blood etc.) from its vessel BDCs, by contrast, rapidly extravasate with high volumes of distribution after parenteral dosing, quickly binding to cell surface tumor antigens and internalizing, and any unbound BDC is quickly cleared by the kidney within minutes. We observed that single extravasated tumor cells proliferated to form “pre-micrometastases,” in which cells lacked contact with neighboring tumor cells and were active and motile within the confined region of the growing clone.
1640 POT-BOILER a book or picture produced merely to bring in money And in his equatorial travels, represented here by illustrations commissioned for his potboiler of a travelogue in the 1890s, Twain’s own disgust at the track record of imperialism and white dominance becomes palpable. That was followed, surely for the first time in history, by a piece by Ponchielli, composer of the 19th century Italian potboiler opera “La Gioconda,” the kind of music Reich hates most.
1641 CHAPERON elderly women in charge of a girl on social occasions Our chaperons didn’t come with us; they went back to the hotel. My dad will be there as a chaperon.
1642 PENINSULA land so surrounded by water as to e almost and island So he set up his encampment at Yorktown at the tip of the York River peninsula on Chesapeake Bay. He watched her gesture about a map of the peninsula, rattling off various locations and their temperatures.
1643 MADRIGAL part-song for several voices without instrumental accompaniment Monteverdi brought all the tricks he was learning composing madrigals and sacred choral music into his telling of Orpheus’s descent into the Underworld to rescue his recently lost lover, Euridice. And now there was an acrimonious madrigal, with parts sung in all quarters of the car.
1644 MUTINY open rebellion of soldiers and sailors against lawful authority But when he tried to get up, his body mutinied against movement. If anyone proposes another match race between these two super horses,” wrote a reporter after the race, “henceforth, he will be tried in the morning for treason, mutiny, mopery and non compos mentis.””
1645 POSTULATE something which can be taken for granted “Or the wind died down a little,” Beck postulated. All sorts of revolutionary changes in technology are postulated for the future, ranging from final control of human disease to solutions of the world food and population problems.
1646 ARCHAIC words used in ancient time but no longer in general use now As Adam Freedman points out in his book on legalese, “What distinguishes legal boilerplate is its combination of archaic terminology and frenzied verbosity, as though it were written by a medieval scribe on crack.” “He has a paper trail. I know, seems so archaic, right? It’s at the Columbia anthropology archive.”
1647 SHREDDING cutting all the waste paper into pieces Looking up they saw the clouds breaking and shredding; and then high in the south the moon glimmered out, riding in the flying wrack. Except the desire shredding me up inside was so painful, it could only be a part of my heart and soul.
1648 PANTISOCRACY government by all Television had shrunk the world, and had in the process become a great weapon for eradicating ignorance and promoting democracy. “Don’t worry. Same price. This is my patriotic deed today. I’m making the world safe for democracy.”
1649 HANSOM two wheeled cab for two to ride indie with driver mounted up behind Meanwhile an old gentleman had begun to struggle shakily out of the ruins of the first hansom. Then came a third hansom with two more policemen in it.
1650 OBLITERATE destroy without any trace Staring at the inside of the locker, like looking into an upright coffin, he felt as though someone was trying to obliterate him, remove all traces of his existence, his presence in the school. You obliterate yourself in the name of speed.
1651 SUBTERRANEAN submarines operate below the surface of the seas Just that he was another person of subterranean inclinations”and a taste for imported white tile. How deep it went no one knew, but now, all unseen, the intricate subterranean strata were collapsing.
1652 CHIMERICAL an unreal and visionary ideal The rather chimerical notion of a nuclear bomb without radioactive side effects had emerged in late 1954 and had been embraced by Livermore, where it fit nicely with the lab’s brief to explore new ideas. However many dreams she had navigated, whatever chimerical fancies she had witnessed, she had never interacted.
1653 REJUVENATE give back to the users their youthful vigour and appearance Spirits flurried around inside her to rejuvenate whatever damage had been done as she rose and took an uneasy step forward. With a vitality that seemed impossible at her age, Úrsula had rejuvenated the house again.
1654 ALTRUIST a lover of mankind It was no secret that King Robert had left the crown vastly in debt, and alchemists were seldom mistaken for altruists. Ms. Malone said maybe bats are altruists, which means they’re sharing to help the other bats, even if it’s a risk.
1655 BOHEMIAN an unconventional style of living For Oppenheimer, a genuine bohemian and a Jew, membership was out of the question. At least they seemed bohemian compared to my parents.
1656 CHAUVINIST a person who is blindly devoted to an idea And for years after that, a chauvinist of the more amiable sort. But in a strict, logical sense, some means “at least one” and does not rule out “all”; there’s no contradiction in saying Some men are chauvinists; indeed, all of them are.
1657 DEBONAIR suave (polished and light hearted person) She loves the way Vic looks, using the word debonair instead of dapper. His small mustache was trimmed and looked as debonair as ever.
1658 DILETTANTE a dabbler (not serious in art, science and literature “There were no scientists in Stuart England,’ we are told, “and all the men we have grouped together under that heading were in their varying degrees dilettantes.’ “It’s better up here away from the phonies and the dilettantes. Here I can do what I want and no one comes to sneer. You’re not a sneerer, are you?”
1659 LIBERTINE a person who leads an immoral life She was aware of his libertine relationships with the women in the factory, but had ceased to be hurt by them. The transition from libertine to prig was so complete.
1660 PHILOGYNIST one who works for the welfare of the women Jane, your films were about sticking it to the man, snapping back at the patriarchy by showing strong female protagonists who didn’t conform to gender roles. I wrapped my right hand around the joystick and began to play, guiding my pizza-shaped protagonist through one maze after another.
1661 SWASHBUCKLER a boastful fellow We lunged about in the garage like two swashbucklers in an especially inept historical film for several moments, fork and cutlass clicking against each other madly. “There, by the left, you look a regular little swashbuckler now,” chuckled the kindly hare.
1662 TERMAGANT a noisy quarrelsome women, a shrew Henry’s wife, Aminta, under the guise of “Timidia,” will mimic a quiet young thing, then, once “married,” turn into a termagant, thereby enabling Henry to extricate his uncle from the predicament, and gaining his favor. Well, not “termagant” because they can’t spell it, but you get the point. Do you trust the perception of creeps?
1663 TOPER one who is habitual drunken For a while she thought of herself as a kind of medical Chaucer, whose wards thronged with colorful types, coves, topers, old hats, nice dears with a sinister secret to tell. His drinks column for the Observer’s food magazine was an engaging confection of wit, doom and fantasy, as it would be from a such a seasoned toper.
1664 VIRTUOSO one who is brilliant performer on stage(specially music) That is not to say that some classical musicians did not attain fame and success, but these were mostly singers, conductors and virtuoso players, making their names with Verdi, Mahler, Mozart or Wagner. He was, in fact, a veritable virtuoso of exits.
1665 FACSIMILE an exact copy of handwriting ,printing “I mean it’s supposed to look like a six-hundred-series instant camera, from Polaroid’s most popular line. From a distance, yeah, it would pass, but up close it’s obviously a bad facsimile.” Notably, Brenner and Jacob later discovered the messenger RNA was a facsimile of the DNA chain”a copy made from the original.
1666 GREGARIOUS animals which live in a flock , used for human beings also She is much more gregarious than Chris was and can’t imagine going off into the wilderness”or virtually anywhere else”alone. His gregarious nature and sense of humor earned him friends.
1667 BORROW the dwelling place if an animal underground By the time Helmuth reaches the Bieberhaus and returns the borrowed book, the words to another pamphlet have formed in his head. A yellow one with a skinny plastic headset that I’m sure he’ll let me borrow.
1668 CACHE a place where treasurers ,stores ,ammunition are hidden There’s a cache of blue shadows in the pearls, a coolness in the smooth surfaces. The floor lay flat against the hull; there could be no cache beneath it.
1669 DECANTER an original glass bottle for holding wine or other alcoholic drinks Certainly when Slughorn, who had been busy with decanters and glasses, turned to face the room again, his eyes fell immediately upon Harry. Seen from the top the stuff looked almost black, but in the decanter it gleamed like a ruby.
1670 DREY a squirrel’s home Squibbles tried to steal a few fabric strips to line his drey, the nest made of leaves and twigs high in one of my forked branches. They commonly reside in a “drey,” a type of nest made of leaves.
1671 INFIRMARY a home for old people “This will be a bit of a shock,” said Professor McGonagall in a surprisingly gentle voice as they approached the infirmary. “My contact in the infirmary will make sure he stays sick enough. We just need to get him through diagnosis. Now get to work.”
1672 KENNEL a house or shelter for a dog The kennels were empty”the dogs were at the track. “Let me know about starting work on that new kennel.”
1673 STY a place where pigs are kept It floated with its door to the sty I reached out, grabbed the handle and lifted the door open. All he deserved to live in was some filthy sty, some blind hole in the ground.
1674 SHEATH ,SCABBARD a case in which the blade of a sword is kept Sweeping the belt and scabbard up, he slung them across his shoulder. Jaime vaulted down off Honor and strode to Bracken’s tent, his sword rattling in its scabbard.
1675 TANNERY a place where lather is tanned A few days later he began working at the tannery, and before long Thambi, my second son, had joined him. The next morning the tannery had its full complement again, most of them workers who had gone back, the remainder men who were only too glad to obtain employment.
1676 CHAUFFEUR one who drives a motor car We recently put in a second small covered patio with a bar so that while my guests are enjoying a meal, their chauffeurs will have a pleasant place to bide their time. “This is all right. What happens when you turn pro? You get a Cadillac and a chauffeur?”
1677 COMPERE one who introduces performing artists on the stage programmes “And now,” said Slughorn, shifting massively in his seat with the air of a compere introducing his star act. Singer for the Leeds goth-rock band the March Violets, she is also Rosie Lugosi, cabaret compere and performer, and has published several collections of poetry.
1678 PSEPHOLOGIST one who studies the pattern of voting in elections Here’s an observation, made after sifting through last week’s RR in the manner of an amateur psephologist: if the election campaign was dominated by men, so are songs about elections. Knighted in 2017, he is perhaps the only psephologist in the UK who is routinely, albeit reluctantly, recognised in the street.
1679 KEKISTOCRACY government by the worst citizen Adams was fully prepared to include Jefferson as a charter member of the natural aristocracy that made and then secured the American Revolution. The Prussian aristocracy was serving in the German army, fighting for their land and titles.
1680 PANARCY government run universally But there is frighteningly little evidence that his strategy was the crime panacea that he and the media deemed it. In fact, I don’t share the belief, held by many union staffers, that unionization would be a panacea.
1681 FILICIDE murder of one’s children Crimes of the Future Rated R for filicide, surgeries and power-drill violence. Stannis, of course, learned almost immediately that filicide is not a good battlefield strategy, as it turned out.
1682 CONCUBIANGE live in relationship a man and a woman living without being married “In the meantime, they are considered by the Church to be living in concubinage because their traditional marriage has no canonical value,” he said in a paper published in 1994. In retaliation, Woodhull used her paper to expose one of her chief accusers, prominent minister Henry Ward Beecher, for his life “in concubinage with the wife of another.”
1683 BALE a large number of cotton tied in a bundle The onlookers crowded forward as bales and barrels and knobby bundles were passed over the sides into their eager hands. Europe was famished for cotton and needed to be fed, bale by bale.
1684 BEVY a large group of girls/ladies A bevy of guests wanders into the hall from the dining room, sending the cascade of rose petals adrift once more. He had a bevy of female admirers ” but also a coterie of critics, who considered him a dandy and a playboy.
1685 BRACE a pair of pigeons Climbing up the hill after her, bracing his knee with his palm, he’d wiped his hands on his trousers and answered our clamorous whispers”dead? is he”?”with the brief impersonal nod of a doctor…. I brace myself for more scorn, but then one corner of his mouth lifts.
1686 CAUCUS of inner circle of members of government Members of both parties cast their votes at precinct-level meetings”caucuses”in the middle of winter, and the whole nation paid attention. Several days later, a Thursday, the caucuses arrived.
1687 CLIQUE a small person belonging to a body She looked out for cliques, especially among players who wanted to stick with their own kind. He knew which girl from my clique I was most closely aligned with, and which girl was currently in friendship purgatory.
1688 CLAQUE a group[p of applauders i.e. paid to clap And suddenly a claque of women crowded to the door and overflowed into the yard. Then he proceeded to mimic the way I spoke, giving me what he perceived to be a Gcaleka accent, at which his own claque laughed heartily.
1689 CLUSTER a group of islands Perotin strikes us, even today, as an irrepressibly adventurous creative force, a firecracker of a composer who conceived and wrote down the most complex simultaneous note clusters that had ever been heard. One day as he walked along the street, he observed a small hut that had not been there two days previous, around which was a cluster of youths, all clamoring for admittance.
1690 FLOTILLA a small fleet of boats Shells, gas clouds, and flotillas of tanks”shattering, corroding, death. With Nixonian cunning, Calliope unwrapped and flushed away a flotilla of unused Tampax.
1691 HAUL a number of fish caught (in net) caught at one time But he did haul our water and cut wood, and he elucidated for us the many daily mysteries of Kilanga. And then his father grabbed the back of his shirt and hauled him over the side of the truck.
1692 HEAP a number of ruins, stones Outside lay a heap of garlands, roses, lilies, chrysanthemums; evidently others had been before me. When her bra lay beside Rishi’s bed, her jeans and underwear on top of them, all in a tangled, warm heap, she looked up at his slightly blurry form, trying to read his expression.
1693 LITTER of young pigs, dogs at birth When I look up to check again, the numbers fade into dancing cats singing about kitty litter. The floor was littered with skeletons in Roman armor and Imperial gold weapons encrusted with frost.
1694 POSSE a group of people who are the same in some way So, in other words, I was lucky to have a job, and keeping Sharaud and his posse another year would be pushing the envelope. All I could say was, “Me and Ma gives our thanks to you and the posse for the trouble y’all went through to get these, Sheriff Jackson.”
1695 LOCK a section of hair Mine was attempting to pop and lock to “Boom Boom Pow” in front of them. Thorarinsson said that Fischer, locked behind bars, reminded him of Hamlet, and then he quoted a line from Shakespeare’s play:
1696 SHOAL a large number of fish swimming together In the Stepstones they had taken on grain and game and fresh water, after the long voyage along the bleak and barren coast of Dome with its shoals and whirlpools. It was a rocky sandbar a mile wide at its widest and a little longer than that, fringed all about with shoals and rocks.
1697 STRING a sequence of similar items The rind was tied to a string, and the string hung around her neck. He pulled out a small, slightly furry drawstring pouch with a long string, evidently intended to be worn around the neck.
1698 SWARM a flies or locusts, bees ,ants They would swarm over them with their knives and cleavers and meat hooks. No one shouts nothing for a minute but the Noise of the men buzzes in the air like a swarm.
1699 TRUSS a framework of rafters, posts and bars George Post’s design called for twenty-two trusses, each weighing two hundred tons. Jon was not afraid of death, but he did not want to die like that, trussed and bound and beheaded like a common brigand.
1700 THRONG a large crowd of people Terror at the thronging members took hold of Odysseus. Normally it was thronged with boats ” in a country with few paved roads, the Congo was the closest thing to an interstate.
