  1. bout

    Conflict is a general word which describes opponents, whether individuals or hosts, as dashed together. One continuous conflict between entire armies is a battle. Another battle may be fought upon the same field after a considerable interval; or a new battle may follow immediately, the armies meeting upon a new field. An action is brief and partial; a battle may last for days. Engagement is a somewhat formal expression for battle; as, it was the commander's purpose to avoid a general engagement. A protracted war, including many battles, may be a stubborn contest. Combat, originally a hostile encounter between individuals, is now used also for extensive engagements. A skirmish is between small detachments or scattered troops. An encounter may be either purposed or accidental, between individuals or armed forces. Fight is a word of less dignity than battle; we should not ordinarily speak of Waterloo as a fight, unless where the word is used in the sense of fighting; as, I was in the thick of the fight.

    Synonyms:
    action, affair, battle, combat, conflict, contest, encounter, engagement, fight, passage of arms, skirmish, strife

    Antonyms:
    armistice, concord, peace, suspension of hostilities, truce

    Preposition:
    A battle of giants; battle between armies; a battle for life, against invaders; a battle to the death; the battle of (more rarely at) Marathon.

How to use bout in a sentence?

  1. George Orwell:

    All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.

  2. Preet Bharara:

    Viktor Bout has been international arms trafficking enemy number one for many years, arming some of the most violent conflicts around the globe, he was finally brought to justice in an American court for agreeing to provide a staggering number of military-grade weapons to an avowed terrorist organization committed to killing Americans.

  3. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio:

    We have a debate like we did two weeks ago where it gets pretty heated and people say, 'We don't like it. It's too personal. They're not talking a bout policy,'.

  4. Maria Zakharova:

    The court's lack of desire to even hold public hearings to consider additional arguments about Bout's innocence with the participation of many defense witnesses reflects concerns that a case fabricated by U.S. special services would simply fall apart before everyone's eyes.

  5. Jessica Matthews:

    Pilot studies have pointed to reduced stress levels after even a single bout of exercise.
