  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.] 
 
  Thou  art  a  man  remarked  to  taste  a  mischief.  --Ford. 
 
  His  manacles  remark  him  there  he  sits.  --Milton. 
 
  2.  To  take  notice  of  or  to  observe,  mentally;  as  to  remark

  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.
