English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. capitulate

    To surrender is to give up upon compulsion, as to an enemy in war, hence to give up to any person, passion, influence, or power. To yield is to give place or give way under pressure, and hence under compulsion. Yield implies more softness or concession than surrender; the most determined men may surrender to overwhelming force; when one yields, his spirit is at least somewhat subdued. A monarch or a state cedes territory perhaps for a consideration; surrenders an army, a navy, or a fortified place to a conqueror; a military commander abandons an untenable position or unavailable stores. We sacrifice something precious through error, friendship, or duty, yield to convincing reasons, a stronger will, winsome persuasion, or superior force. Compare ABANDON.

    Synonyms:
    abandon, alienate, cede, give, give oneself up, give over, give up, let go, relinquish, sacrifice, surrender, yield

How to use capitulate in a sentence?

  1. Ryan Mauro:

    By showcasing its slavery, ISIS is boasting that it practices Islam in its most literal interpretation, doesn't capitulate to public opinion and rejects modern interpretations, it is also showing it has a functional Islamic educational system and therefore is a real caliphate. The timing of the announcement is significant as Ramadan is a time of year where Muslims are charged with rejuvenating their faith.

    I expect that the president will capitulate to the Communist Party of China. It should be pretty apparent to anybody that's been alive for the past five years that the Biden family is completely compromised by the Communist Party of China, it's been a grift for a very long time, and instead of going after the Communist Party of China, they're happy to change the text words of Jim Jordan that were on his phone, so that's all a distraction to keep the American people from focusing on what really is actionable intelligence and actual evidence like you said in plain sight that the DOJ should be pursuing right now.

  4. Mason Clark:

  5. Ben May:

    The antipathy towards more austerity with the general public and (Greek governing party) Syriza is a major sticking point and means a quick resolution is unlikely if it means Greece has to capitulate.
