  1. brief
  2. type
  3. glance
  4. wealthy
  5. short
  6. furious
  7. plain
  8. delay
  9. simple
  10. broke
  11. quicken
  12. sort
  13. sure
  14. look
  15. stuffy
  16. airy
  17. query
  18. frantic
  19. confident
  20. doubt

Example: brief is a synonym of short.

  • I’m sorry, we are running out of time, your statement will have to be brief.
  • I would like to tell you a short anecdote.
