English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. avow

    Acknowledge, admit, and declare refer either to oneself or to others; all the other words refer only to one's own knowledge or action. To avow is to declare boldly and openly, commonly as something one is ready to justify, maintain, or defend. A man acknowledges another's claim or his own promise; he admits an opponent's advantage or his own error; he declares either what he has seen or experienced or what he has received from another; he avers what he is sure of from his own knowledge or consciousness; he gives his assurance as the voucher for what he avouches; he avows openly a belief or intention that he has silently held. Avow and avouch take a direct object; aver is followed by a conjunction: a man avows his faith, avouches a deed, avers that he was present. Avow has usually a good sense; what a person avows he at least does not treat as blameworthy, criminal, or shameful; if he did, he would be said to confess it; yet there is always the suggestion that some will be ready to challenge or censure what one avows; as, the clergyman avowed his dissent from the doctrine of his church. Own applies to all things, good or bad, great or small, which one takes as his own. Compare CONFESS; STATE.

    Synonyms:
    admit, aver, avouch, confess, declare, knowledge, own, proclaim, profess, protest, testify, witness

    Antonyms:
    contradict, deny, disavow, disclaim, disown, ignore, repudiate

How to use avow in a sentence?

  1. Edgar Allan Poe:

    Take this kiss upon the brow and, in parting from you now, thus much let me avow -- you are not wrong who deem that my days have been a dream yet if hope has flown away in a night, or in a day, in a vision, or in none, is it therefore the less gone all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

  2. William Harvey:

    I avow myself the partisan of truth alone.
