(of a person) lying face upwards Or failing to act or protest as a result of moral weakness or indolence.

Origin: c. 1500, “lying on the back,” from Latin supinus “bent backwards, thrown backwards, lying on the back,” figuratively “inactive, indolent,” from PIE *(s)up- (see sub-). The grammatical use for “Latin verbal noun formed from the past participle stem” (mid-15c.) is from Late Latin supinum verbum “supine verb,” perhaps so called because, though furnished with a noun case ending, it “falls back” on the verb. Related: Supinely.

Synonyms: prone(झुका हुआ), recumbent(लेटा हुआ), prostrate(साष्टांग दण्डवत्), spineless(कंधे झुका)

Antonyms: upright(सीधा), straight(सीधा), vertical(लंबवत), perpendicular(सीधा)
