English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. confer

    An individual considers, meditates, ponders, reflects, by himself; he weighs a matter in his own mind, and is sometimes said even to debate with himself. Consult and confer always imply two or more persons, as does debate, unless expressly limited as above. Confer suggests the interchange of counsel, advice, or information; consult indicates almost exclusively the receiving of it. A man confers with his associates about a new investment; he consults his physician about his health; he may confer with him on matters of general interest. He consults a dictionary, but does not confer with it. Deliberate, which can be applied to a single individual, is also the word for a great number, while consult is ordinarily limited to a few; a committee consults; an assembly deliberates. Deliberating always carries the idea of slowness; consulting is compatible with haste; we can speak of a hasty consultation, not of a hasty deliberation. Debate implies opposing views; deliberate, simply a gathering and balancing of all facts and reasons. We consider or deliberate with a view to action, while meditation may be quite purposeless.

    Synonyms:
    consider, consult, debate, deliberate, meditate, ponder, reflect, weigh

    Preposition:
    We deliberate on or upon, also about or concerning a matter: the first two are preferable.

How to use CONFER in a sentence?

  1. Paul Ryan:

    We shouldn’t confer Malaysia’s sins to these other countries that we’re trying to get agreements with.

  2. Jeffrey R. Snyder:

    As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust. Laws disarming honest citizens proclaim that the government is the master, not the servant of the people... The Bill of Rights does not grant rights to the people, such that its repeal would legitimately confer upon government the powers otherwise proscribed. The Bill of Rights is the list of the fundamental, inalienable rights, endowed in man by his Creator, that define what it means to be a free and independent people, the rights which must exist to ensure that government governs only with the consent of the people.

  3. Keith Ablow:

    Unfortunately, I think that breakups in Hollywood confer upon both individuals the chance for more notoriety because the press revisits these celebrities and takes interest, again, in their personal lives and their new romantic conquests.

  4. W. Somerset Maugham:

    I do not confer praise or blame I accept. I am the measure of all things. I am the centre of the world.

  5. Howard Sesso:

    That's not to say that there might not be some special quality of red wine like resveratrol that could confer additional benefits.
