English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. appealverb

    To accost is to speak first, to friend or stranger, generally with a view to opening conversation; greet is not so distinctly limited, since one may return another's greeting; greet and hail may imply but a passing word; greeting may be altogether silent; to hail is to greet in a loud-voiced and commonly hearty and joyous way, as appears in the expression "hail fellow, well met." To salute is to greet with special token of respect, as a soldier his commander. To apostrophize is to solemnly address some person or personified attribute apart from the audience to whom one is speaking; as, a preacher may apostrophize virtue, the saints of old, or even the Deity. To appeal is strictly to call for some form of help or support. Address is slightly more formal than accost or greet, though it may often be interchanged with them. One may address another at considerable length or in writing; he accosts orally and briefly.

    Synonyms:
    address, address, apostrophize, approach, cost, court, greet, hail, salute, speak to, woo

    Antonyms:
    avoid, cut, elude, ignore, overlook, pass, pass by, shun

How to use appeal in a sentence?

  1. Acting Commissioner Sharpless:

    Under my leadership, The FDA will continue to tackle the troubling epidemic of e-cigarette use among kids, this includes limiting youth access to, and appeal of, flavored tobacco products like e-cigarettes and cigars, taking action against manufacturers and retailers who illegally market these products or sell them to minors, and educating youth about the dangers of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products. We can not and will not risk a generation of youth to a lifetime of nicotine addiction.

  2. Ramana Pemmaraju:

    Finally, I realised that No One, howsoever you may consider dearest to you, will never mend their ways to appeal you, for they will only follow their own nature. Accept it! You may like it or dislike it. The irony is in the process there may be phases in individual’s lives where their actions/ behaviour may appease you, but that’s never to be misunderstood that they have changed for you. From an evolutionary psychology standpoint, that’s a rebellious attitude that shapes our society!”

  3. Todd Rosenbluth:

    If the appeal of the product is that you are in the least risky stocks, then hopefully the portfolios make the changes fast enough.

  4. Mike Brodo:

    I think that's kind of the core mission here is kind of trying to appeal to people our age, getting them involved in politics, i think our biggest demographic that we're appealing to is actually people that are not political junkies like Mike Brodo, that are always talking about it. It's the people that care about politics to the level that any citizen should, but are just so turned off because of how polarized and disgusting a lot of the discourse is today.

  5. Teresa Reid:

    The old adage that is quoted is, death is different, there's no appeal from that final act of execution.
