How can you use the word 'eminence' in a sentence? I know how to use the word eminent as an adjective but not the noun form.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. When you look in a good dictionary there are often synonyms and/or antonyms. When you find a synonym (or a word you recognize), write a sentence with that word and then substitute the new word "eminence."
Main Entry: em·i·nence
Date: 15th century
1 : a position of prominence or superiority
2 : one that is eminent, prominent, or lofty: as a : an anatomical protuberance (as on a bone) b : a person of high rank or attainments — often used as a title for a cardinal c : a natural elevation
Try a sentence and then we'll be glad to help you.
P.S. Here are some synonyms to try:
celebrity, distinction, elevation, excellence, fame, glory, greatness, height, importance, magnitude, name, note, pinnacle, preeminence, prominence, renown, rise
