English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. assist

    Abet and instigate are now used almost without exception in a bad sense; one may incite either to good or evil. One incites or instigates to the doing of something not yet done, or to increased activity or further advance in the doing of it; one abets by giving sympathy, countenance, or substantial aid to the doing of that which is already projected or in process of commission. Abet and instigate apply either to persons or actions, incite to persons only; one incites a person to an action. A clergyman will advocate the claims of justice, aid the poor, encourage the despondent, support the weak, uphold the constituted authorities; but he will not incite to a quarrel, instigate a riot, or abet a crime. The originator of a crime often instigates or incites others to abet him in it, or one may instigate or incite others to a crime in the commission of which he himself takes no active part. Compare HELP.

How to use assist in a sentence?

  1. Kirstjen Nielsen:

    Lines of communication remain open and The Federal Government stands ready to assist.

  2. Michael Goforth:

    It can be a really passive, intuitive thing. That's kind of what your goal is, is to let the water do all the work, and you use your paddle to assist when it's not perfect.

  3. Vice President Al Gore:

    I know that many of my supporters are disappointed, i am too. But our disappointment must be overcome by our love of country. And I say to our fellow members of the world community, let no one see this contest as a sign of American weakness. The strength of American democracy is shown most clearly through the difficulties it can overcome. Some have expressed concern that the unusual nature of this election might hamper the next president in the conduct of his office. I do not believe it need be so. President-elect Bush inherits a nation whose citizens will be ready to assist him in the conduct of his large responsibilities. I, personally, will be at his disposal, and I call on all Americans -- I particularly urge all who stood with us -- to unite behind our next president.

  4. Brian Nunamaker:

    As a parent, you feel extremely helpless to be unable to assist the most important person in the world during such a time of emergency, worst case scenarios run through your head while you are hoping for the best. The eternity of waiting for help to arrive was surprisingly non-existent in this situation. I was surprised at how quickly help had arrived in the form of a fire truck. When the firefighters arrived on the scene, Nunamaker’s daughter was limp but she was still breathing and had a pulse. His daughter arrived at the hospital and started to have another seizure, but it stopped momentarily. Nunamaker said his daughter was later transferred to VCU and was later discharged. Nunamaker told Fox 5 DC he was hoping to put the ordeal behind him, but couldn’t when he heard the news of Kelley and Bloom’s suspension. My wife and I feel terrible for the fallout that has happened to these two gentlemen, Nunamaker said in a statement to Fox 5 DC. They simply had the best interests for our daughter's care in mind.

  5. Cors Radings:

    We are seeking advice from international parties able to assist us.
