betoken (verb) indicate; signify.

To betoken means to indicate. Dark clouds betoken a heavy rain. Just as torn clothes, hungry looks, and a worried face betoken poverty, expensive clothes, contented looks, and a smiling face betoken prosperity. 'Face is the index of the mind,' Shakespeare says, but not always does a face betoken their real intentions. That is, just by looking at a person's face we cannot understand his real intentions.

  • The well maintained high-rise buildings in the city, its wide roads with heavy traffic, its shops doing brisk business, and its crowded restaurants betoken its prosperity.
  • The building unlit even at sundown, the absolute silence in and around it, the absence of any human movement, and the sound of beetles betokened something wrong with it.
