English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. affidavit

    In the highest sense, as in a court of justice, "an oath is a reverent appeal to God in corroboration of what one says," Abbott Law Dict.; an affidavit is a sworn statement made in writing in the presence of a competent officer; an adjuration is a solemn appeal to a person in the name of God to speak the truth. An oath is made to man in the name of God; a vow, to God without the intervention, often without the knowledge, of man. In the lower sense, an oath may be mere blasphemy or profane swearing. Anathema, curse, execration, and imprecation are modes of invoking vengeance or retribution from a superhuman power upon the person against whom they are uttered. Anathema is a solemn ecclesiastical condemnation of a person or of a proposition. Curse may be just and authoritative; as, the curse of God; or, it may be wanton and powerless: "so the curse causeless shall not come," Prov. xxvi, 2. Execration expresses most of personal bitterness and hatred; imprecation refers especially to the coming of the desired evil upon the person against whom it is uttered. Malediction is a general wish of evil, a less usual but very expressive word. Compare TESTIMONY.

How to use affidavit in a sentence?

  1. Jamarcus Glover:

    $8K for him and that she had been handling all my money. Glover denied that Taylor had any money for him and said she was not involved in any drug activities. Authorities investigating Glover prior to Taylors death had seen packages delivered to her residence addressed to Glover, and Glover was seen leaving her house with parcels that he took back to his alleged drug house, according to the arrest affidavit. Getting shoes and clothes coming through the mail is not illegal, nothing illegal at all.

  2. Mario M Cuomo:

  3. Kendall Coffey:

    The prosecutors went through this relying on the probable cause affidavit [which they filed with the court in charging Zimmerman.] They were prepared to accept the judge's ruling, rather than make an all out effort to defeat bond by putting their best evidence forward. Because if they had done that, the defense would have had a preview of their case and still wouldn't have had bond denied." -On the Trayvon Martin Trial

  4. Beau Phillips:

    General Allen’s counsel is deeply concerned about the serious and damaging ethical breach that occurred with the public release of a search warrant affidavit containing confidential grand jury information, not only did the breach offend longstanding law and Department of Justice policy on the confidentiality of ongoing investigations, but the narrative presented in the affidavit and now made public also is factually inaccurate, incomplete, and misleading.

  5. Eytan Nielsen:

    Cody Longo is innocent. Overwhelming evidence unequivocally disproves and refutes the allegations in the affidavit, we strongly believe the case should be dismissed, and shout not go to trial. However, if it does go to trial, Cody Longo will be found not guilty.
