English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. process

    Motion is change of place or position in space; transition is a passing from one point or position in space to another. Motion may be either abstract or concrete, more frequently the former; movement is always concrete, that is, considered in connection with the thing that moves or is moved; thus, we speak of the movements of the planets, but of the laws of planetary motion; of military movements, but of perpetual motion. Move is used chiefly of contests or competition, as in chess or politics; as, it is your move; a shrewd move of the opposition. Action is a more comprehensive word than motion. We now rarely speak of mental or spiritual motions, but rather of mental or spiritual acts or processes, or of the laws of mental action, but a formal proposal of action in a deliberative assembly is termed a motion. Compare ACT.

    Antonyms:
    immobility, quiescence, quiet, repose, rest, stillness

    Synonyms:
    act, action, change, change, motion, move, movement, passage, transit, transition

  3. Robert Dunham:

    Lest there be any doubt, we hold that our state constitutions prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, article I, section 17,5 does not require a unanimous jury recommendation or any jury recommendation before a death sentence can be imposed, the court said. That ruling has placed the fate of those death row inmates navigating the resentencing process into the realm of uncertainty. There is a growing fear among experts that some of those death row inmates will have their death penalties reinstated. An execution chamber used in Florida. (Florida Department of Corrections) The question here now is going to be, What about the people that have already been told they are entitled to a resentencing hearing? can you take that away from them? Can you retroactively pull the rug out and reinsert the death penalty? Brunvand toldFox News that a motion has already been filed to reinstate the death penalty for his client. He thinks thats an injustice. I cannot imagine having been sentenced to death, having received word from the Supreme Court that the scheme is unconstitutional and youre going to get a new trial, to have lawyers start preparing for trial and then all of the sudden face the prospect that Oh, we might just send you back to death row. I cant imagine.
