Definition of: evident

(evə·dənt) adjective
Plain, manifest, or clear, as to the mind or the senses; obvious. [<L evidens, -entis, ppr. of evidere <e- out + videre see]
Synonyms: apparent, clear, conspicuous, discernible, distinct, glaring, indubitable, manifest, obvious, open, overt, palpable, patent, perceptible, plain, tangible, transparent, unmistakable, visible. That is apparent which clearly appears to the senses or to the mind as soon as the attention is directed toward it; that is evident of which the mind is made sure by some inference that supplements the facts of perception: The marks of a struggle were apparent in broken shrubbery and trampled ground, and the finding of a mutilated body and a rifled purse made it evident that robbery and murder had been committed. That is manifest which we can lay the hand upon; manifest is thus stronger than evident, as touch is more absolute than sight. That is obvious which is directly in the way so that it cannot be missed; as, The application of the remark was obvious. Visible applies to all that can be perceived by the sense of sight, whether the noonday sun, a ship on the horizon, or a microscopic object. Discernible applies to that which is dimly or faintly visible, requiring strain and effort in order to be seen; as, The ship was discernible through the mist. That is conspicuous which stands out and attracts the attention. Palpable and tangible express more emphatically the thought of manifest. See APPARENT, CLEAR, MANIFEST, NOTORIOUS. Antonyms: concealed, covert, dark, hidden, impalpable, impenetrable, imperceptible, invisible, latent, obscure, occult, secret, undiscovered, unimagined, unknown, unseen, unsuspected, veiled.
