English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. blame

    To condemn is to pass judicial sentence or render judgment or decision against. We may censure silently; we condemn ordinarily by open and formal utterance. Condemn is more final than blame or censure; a condemned criminal has had his trial; a condemned building can not stand; a condemned ship can not sail. A person is convicted when his guilt is made clearly manifest to others; in somewhat archaic use, a person is said to be convicted when guilt is brought clearly home to his own conscience (convict in this sense being allied with convince, which see under PERSUADE); in legal usage one is said to be convicted only by the verdict of a jury. In stating the penalty of an offense, the legal word sentence is now more common than condemn; as, he was sentenced to imprisonment; but it is good usage to say, he was condemned to imprisonment. To denounce is to make public or official declaration against, especially in a violent and threatening manner.

    From the pulpits in the northern States Burr was denounced as an assassin.

    Coffin Building the Nation ch. 10, p. 137. [Harper & Bros. '83.]

    To doom is to condemn solemnly and consign to evil or destruction or to predetermine to an evil destiny; an inferior race in presence of a superior is doomed to subjugation or extinction. Compare ARRAIGN; REPROVE.

    Synonyms:
    censure, condemn, convict, denounce, doom, reprobate, reprove, sentence

    Antonyms:
    absolve, acquit, applaud, approve, exonerate, justify, pardon, pardon, praise

    Preposition:
    The bandit was condemned to death for his crime.

How to use blame in a sentence?

    These false allegations distract from the important work of finding solutions to a complex public health crisis by placing blame where it does not belong.

  4. Hillary Clinton:

    If you want a president who will tell you everything that is wrong with America and who is to blame for it, you've got plenty of other choices. And my goodness, didn't we hear enough of that the other night at the Republican debate, but if you want a president who will listen to you, work her heart out to make your life better, and together to build a stronger, fairer, better country, then you are looking at her.

    Those guys gets a lot of sponsors. A lot of those guys are good-looking guys, we don’t want to damage them too much. It’s the most valuable position on the field. You got to protect them.
