SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

absolute (adj) total/complete; pure; undoubted.

When we believe a person totally, we have absolute trust in him. 'As the teacher entered the class, there was absolute silence.' A severe earthquake may cause absolute disaster. The police were not able to find absolute (undoubted) proof of his crime. Absolute also means considered without comparison. No person is absolutely good. (That is, we say that a person is good, because, some others are not even as good.) In this sense absolute is the opposite of relative. Eg: distance is relative, that is, a place is distant or nearby in comparison with the distance of some other places.

  • After taking over power in a coup, the army general ruled the country with absolute power.
  • All religions say that absolute faith in God will see a person through any difficulty.
