English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. check

    To hinder is to keep from action, progress, motion, or growth, or to make such action, progress, motion, or growth later in beginning or completion than it would otherwise have been. An action is prevented by anything that comes in before it to make it impossible; it is hindered by anything that keeps it from either beginning or ending so soon as it otherwise would, or as expected or intended. It is more common, however, to say that the start is delayed, the progress hindered. An action that is hindered does not take place at the appointed or appropriate time; that which is prevented does not take place at all; to hinder a thing long enough may amount to preventing it. A railroad-train may be hindered by a snow-storm from arriving on time; it may by special order be prevented from starting. To retard is simply to make slow by any means whatever. To obstruct is to hinder, or possibly to prevent advance or passage by putting something in the way; to oppose or resist is to hinder, or possibly to prevent by directly contrary or hostile action, resist being the stronger term and having more suggestion of physical force; obstructed roads hinder the march of an enemy, tho there may be no force strong enough to oppose it; one opposes a measure, a motion, an amendment, or the like; it is a criminal offense to resist an officer in the discharge of his duty; the physical system may resist the attack of disease or the action of a remedy. Compare CONQUER; IMPEDIMENT; OBSTRUCT.

How to use check in a sentence?

  1. Mac Thornberry:

    Some people expect the lawmakers to just cut the check and don't ask too many questions, but Congress should not give any president a blank check and Congress should not be a rubber stamp, as the branch of government most responsible for the character and contours of our military.

  2. Michael Gschossmann:

    We have to get moving on this. We have to ensure that the studies move along quickly. We need a reality check.

  3. Mitch McConnell:

    In the last midterm election before Justice Scalias death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck presidents second term. We kept our promise. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party presidents Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year, by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Preident Trump and support Preident Trump agenda, particularly Preident Trump outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary. Once again, we will keep our promise. President Trumps nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.

  4. Krys Johnson:

    Stay hydrated, take care of yourself, check in with your group of buddies, and monitor your temperature so you can get tested and treated early if you do become ill.

  5. Barack Obama:

    Everybody was saying I was Leonard Nimoy, so I figured I should check it out.
