Remark Re*mark" (r?-m?rk"), v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Remarked} (-m?rkt"); p. pr. & vb. n. {Remarking}.] [F. remarquer; pref. re- re- + marquer to mark, marque a mark, of German origin, akin to E. mark. See {Mark}, v. & n.] 1. To mark in a notable manner; to distinquish clearly; to make noticeable or conspicuous; to piont out. [Obs.] [1913 Webster]

Thou art a man remarked to taste a mischief. --Ford. [1913 Webster]

His manacles remark him; there he sits. --Milton. [1913 Webster]

2. To take notice of, or to observe, mentally; as, to remark the manner of a speaker. [1913 Webster]

3. To express in words or writing, as observed or noticed; to state; to say; -- often with a substantive clause; as, he remarked that it was time to go. [1913 Webster]

Syn: To observe; notice; heed; regard; note; say.

Usage: {Remark}, {Observe}, {Notice}. To observe is to keep or hold a thing distinctly before the mind. To remark is simply to mark or take note of whatever may come up. To notice implies still less continuity of attention. When we turn from these mental states to the expression of them in language, we find the same distinction. An observation is properly the result of somewhat prolonged thought; a remark is usually suggested by some passing occurence; a notice is in most cases something cursory and short. This distinction is not always maintained as to remark and observe, which are often used interchangeably. ``Observing men may form many judgments by the rules of similitude and proportion.'' --I. Watts. ''He can not distinguish difficult and noble speculations from trifling and vulgar remarks.'' --Collier. ''The thing to be regarded, in taking notice of a child's miscarriage, is what root it springs from.'' --Locke. [1913 Webster]
