English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. accept

    Agree is the most general term of this group, signifying to have like qualities, proportions, views, or inclinations, so as to be free from jar, conflict, or contradiction in a given relation. To concur is to agree in general; to coincide is to agree in every particular. Whether in application to persons or things, concur tends to expression in action more than coincide; we may either concur or coincide in an opinion, but concur in a decision; views coincide, causes concur. One accepts another's terms, complies with his wishes, admits his statement, approves his plan, conforms to his views of doctrine or duty, accedes or consents to his proposal. Accede expresses the more formal agreement, consent the more complete. To assent is an act of the understanding; to consent, of the will. We may concur or agree with others, either in opinion or decision. One may silently acquiesce in that which does not meet his views, but which he does not care to contest. He admits the charge brought, or the statement made, by another — admit always carrying a suggestion of reluctance. Assent is sometimes used for a mild form of consent, as if agreement in the opinion assured approval of the decision.

    Synonyms:
    accede, accord, acquiesce, admit, agree, approve, assent, coincide, combine, comply, concur, consent, harmonize

    Antonyms:
    contend, contradict, decline, demur, deny, differ, disagree, dispute, dissent, oppose, protest, refuse

    Preposition:
    I agree in opinion with the speaker; to the terms proposed; persons agree on or upon a statement of principles, rules, etc.; we must agree among ourselves.

How to use accept in a sentence?

  1. The Ayatollah:

    Iran will never accept this, this is the Americans' ploy. Removal of sanctions should be part of any agreement.

  2. George Steiner:

    The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.

  3. The Republicans:

    To pull out a candidate on the second round is rather unfair. Today, they're twisting the arm of the French, of the left. Are they going to accept being insulted, despised? We'll see.

  4. Salam Al-Marayati:

    The threat is ISIS, whether we like it or not; ISIS is front and center on the news in the media cycle. How many stories are there on sovereign citizens, white supremacists, and how many on ISIS and al-Qaeda? whether it's fair or not, it doesn't matter. That's the reality. We have to accept it.

  5. Chief Executive Jan Trionow:

    Of course it's about margins... If you expect that an operator invests more into its network, you have to accept that they can make more revenues.
