English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. application

    Exercise, in the ordinary sense, is the easy natural action of any power; exertion is the putting of any power to strain and tax. An exercise-drive for a horse is so much as will develop strength and health and not appreciably weary. But by qualifying adjectives we may bring exercise up to the full sense of exertion; as, violent exercise. Exercise is action taken at any time with a view to employing, maintaining, or increasing power, or merely for enjoyment; practise is systematic exercise with a view to the acquirement of facility and skill in some pursuit; a person takes a walk for exercise, or takes time for practise on the piano. Practise is also used of putting into action and effect what one has learned or holds as a theory; as, the practise of law or medicine; a profession of religion is good, but the practise of it is better. Drill is systematic, rigorous, and commonly enforced practise under a teacher or commander. Compare HABIT.

    Synonyms:
    act, action, activity, drill, employment, exercise, exertion, occupation, operation, performance, practise, use

    Antonyms:
    idleness, inaction, inactivity, relaxation, rest

How to use application in a sentence?

  1. Henry David Thoreau:

    We do not learn by inference and deduction and the application of mathematics to philosophy, but by direct intercourse and sympathy.

  2. Sarah Fankhauser:

    We were so impressed. We really could really see the real-world application in Suvir's paper.

  3. Justin Sherman:

    The Trump administration has taken almost like a whack-a-mole approach to dealing with these issues, because it seems that as soon as a Chinese company is in the news, all of a sudden that becomes the new target, it seems very unlikely that there is thinking going on about the longer term strategy, and much more likely that the focus instead is on this politically motivated attack on an application because it's a Chinese-owned app, even if there are real security questions.

  4. The State Department official:

    The INA was written in 1952 and considerations about reproductive technology, and thinking about the composition of modern families, was just not something that went into the thought making of people writing that law, so the Secretary has approved an updated application... that is going to allow a number of married couples, most of you who are using [ artificial reproductive technology ] to transmit citizenship to their children, and we are excited about that.

  5. Joseph Lumbard:

    A lot of the classical commentaries viewed these verses (on violence) as having limited application, and that's what we wanted to bring out.
