English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. bail

    The first four words agree in denoting something given or deposited as an assurance of something to be given, paid, or done. An earnest is of the same kind as that to be given, a portion of it delivered in advance, as when part of the purchase-money is paid, according to the common expression, "to bind the bargain." A pledge or security may be wholly different in kind from that to be given or paid, and may greatly exceed it in value. Security may be of real or personal property — anything of sufficient value to make the creditor secure; a pledge is always of personal property or chattels. Every pawnshop contains unredeemed pledges; land, merchandise, bonds, etc., are frequently offered and accepted as security. A person may become security or surety for another's payment of a debt, appearance in court, etc.; in the latter case, he is said to become bail for that person; the person accused gives bail for himself. Gage survives only as a literary word, chiefly in certain phrases; as, "the gage of battle."

    Synonyms:
    earnest, gage, pledge, security, surety

    Preposition:
    Security for the payment of a debt; security to the state, for the prisoner, in the sum of a thousand dollars.

  1. Tony Abbott:

    We particularly need to know how someone with such a long record of violence and such a long record of mental instability was out on bail after his involvement in a particularly horrific crime, and we do need to know how he seemed to have fallen off our security agency's watch list back in about 2009.

  2. Kendall Coffey:

    If you lose that fight your whole case is thrown out," he said. "So rather than tell the defense all of their best evidence and strategies today, recognizing that the odds would still favor Zimmerman getting out on bail, they in effect took their lumps, kept their cards close to the vest, and are putting themselves in a better position to succeed in the 'Stand Your Ground' hearing," if it occurs." -on the George Zimmerman Trial

  3. Erik Pistek:

    [But]since the curtailment of [this], in addition to bail reform, in my opinion, crime is spiking, and the figures are reflecting that. The curtailment of the question-and-frisk is handcuffing the cops. Politicians give the appearance that they care more about criminals than the cops.

  4. Donald Trump:

    When somebody sneezes -- I mean, I try and bail out as much as possible when White House officials're sneezing.

  5. Suniya Luthar:

    We are certainly not saying that all affluent parents do this, or even that most do. But there is a sizable and vocal minority of parents who do not just bail their kids out but do it repeatedly and do it in very inappropriate circumstances, so these are the kids who then start to believe, and rightfully so, I'm not getting caught and even if I do, nothing's going to happen to me.
