How to use amenable in a sentence?

  1. Jennifer Deal:

    This study is important because it focuses on a risk factor that is amenable to intervention in later life and could potentially postpone cognitive decline.

  2. Margaret Mead:

    Women should be permitted to volunteer for non-combat service, they should not be accepted, voluntarily or through the draft, as combat soldiers. We know of no comparable ways of training women and girls, and we have no real way of knowing whether the kinds of training that teach men both courage and restraint would be adaptable to women or effective in a crisis. But the evidence of history and comparative studies of other species suggest that women as a fighting body might be far less amenable to the rules that prevent warfare from becoming a massacre and, with the use of modern weapons, that protect the survival of all humanity. This is what I meant by saying that women in combat might be too fierce.

  3. Marc Baum:

    You’re very limited with the range of drugs that are amenable to this technology, they have to be potent, have a long half-life in the body and be very soluble.

  4. Adam Schiff:

  5. William Barr:

    Right now it does not appear that things in Washington are amenable to those kinds of negotiations and compromises.
