English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. award

    Allot, originally to assign by lot, applies to the giving of a definite thing to a certain person. A portion or extent of time is allotted; as, I expect to live out my allotted time. A definite period is appointed; as, the audience assembled at the appointed hour. Allot may also refer to space; as, to allot a plot of ground for a cemetery; but we now oftener use select, set apart, or assign. Allot is not now used of persons. Appoint may be used of time, space, or person; as, the appointed day; the appointed place; an officer was appointed to this station. Destine may also refer to time, place, or person, but it always has reference to what is considerably in the future; a man appoints to meet his friend in five minutes; he destines his son to follow his own profession. Assign is rarely used of time, but rather of places, persons, or things. We assign a work to be done and assign a man to do it, who, if he fails, must assign a reason for not doing it. That which is allotted, appointed, or assigned is more or less arbitrary; that which is awarded is the due requital of something the receiver has done, and he has right and claim to it; as, the medal was awarded for valor. Compare APPORTION.

How to use award in a sentence?

  1. Solicitor General Jose Calida:

    It confirms that no one state can claim virtually an entire sea. The award is a historic win not only for the Philippines ... it renews humanity's faith in a rules based global order, the award opens a horizon of possibilities for all stakeholders. The award is a crowning glory of international law.

  2. Anne Hathaway:

    It’s an obvious thing, you win an Oscar and you’re supposed to be happy. I didn’t feel that way. I felt wrong that I was standing there in a gown that cost more than some people are going to see in their lifetime, and winning an award for portraying pain that still felt very much a part of our collective experience as human beings, i tried to pretend that I was happy and I got called out on it, big time. That’s the truth and that’s what happened.

  3. Jennifer Lopez:

    I grew up in the MTV era, i was watching all the way back from Tina Turner, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna and Janet [ Jackson ] and Michael [ Jackson ], all of them. They were my inspirations to get into the music business, to do what I did. Their videos inspired me to do the videos I did. Now, to be 20 years in and here and winning this award, it's just mind blowing.

  4. Oprah Winfrey:

    I'd like to do more films, but to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award means more to me than any film, any acclaim, even an Oscar, because what it says is you all get it.

  5. Alondes Williams:

    Indiana State forward Jake LaRavia being on us everyday in practice and seeing how much Indiana State forward Jake LaRavia cares about this game... it was just great seeing Indiana State forward Jake LaRavia win that( award) and seeing what Indiana State forward Jake LaRavia's been putting into this program to turn it around.
