English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. augment

    To add is to increase by adjoining or uniting: in distinction from multiply, which is to increase by repeating. To augment a thing is to increase it by any means, but this word is seldom used directly of material objects; we do not augment a house, a farm, a nation, etc. We may enlarge a house, a farm, or an empire, extend influence or dominion, augment riches, power or influence, attach or annex a building to one that it adjoins or papers to the document they refer to, annex a clause or a codicil, affix a seal or a signature, annex a territory, attach a condition to a promise. A speaker may amplify a discourse by a fuller treatment throughout than was originally planned, or he may append or subjoin certain remarks without change of what has gone before. We cast up or sum up an account, though add up and make up are now more usual expressions.

    Synonyms:
    add, adjoin, affix, amplify, annex, append, attach, cast up, enlarge, extend, increase, join on, make up, subjoin, sum up

    Antonyms:
    abstract, deduct, diminish, dissever, lessen, reduce, remove, subtract, withdraw

    Other items are to be added to the account.

How to use augment in a sentence?

  1. Anthony Rostain:

  2. Anne Roudaut:

    This work explores the intersection between man and machine, we have seen many works trying to augment humans with parts of machines, here we look at the other way around and try to make the devices we use every day more like us, i.e. human-like.

  3. Michael Bjorn:

    Half of all the smartphone users we talked to believe that internal sensors will give updates on their health and well-being in only three years, it’s a bit like wearables, but internal sensors in our bodies will be the new wearables. It doesn’t even stop there, he added. When you start asking questions about this, you realize eight out of 10 smartphone owners would like to augment things like sensory perception and cognitive ability with technology. So you have interest in things like vision, memory and hearing and, to me, that is quite surprising.

  4. Jennifer Cafarella:

  5. Jimmy Page:
