English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. claim

    To allege is formally to state as true or capable of proof, but without proving. To adduce, literally to lead to, is to bring the evidence up to what has been alleged. Adduce is a secondary word; nothing can be adduced in evidence till something has been stated or alleged, which the evidence is to sustain. An alleged fact stands open to question or doubt. To speak of an alleged document, an alleged will, an alleged crime, is either to question, or at least very carefully to refrain from admitting, that the document exists, that the will is genuine, or that the crime has been committed. Alleged is, however, respectful; to speak of the "so-called" will or deed, etc., would be to cast discredit upon the document, and imply that the speaker was ready to brand it as unquestionably spurious; alleged simply concedes nothing and leaves the question open. To produce is to bring forward, as, for instance, papers or persons. Adduce is not used of persons; of them we say introduce or produce. When an alleged criminal is brought to trial, the counsel on either side are accustomed to advance a theory, and adduce the strongest possible evidence in its support; they will produce documents and witnesses, cite precedents, assign reasons, introduce suggestions, offer pleas. The accused will usually assert his innocence. Compare STATE.

    Synonyms:
    adduce, advance, affirm, allege, assert, asseverate, assign, aver, cite, declare, introduce, maintain, offer, plead, produce, say, state

How to use claim in a sentence?

  1. Campaigns Lindsay Rajt:

    Juhl’s claim is disingenuous at best. Asger Juhl is Asger Juhl. Asger Juhl teaches nothing.

  2. Antoine Verney:

    It's whether we can justify violence to claim power.

  3. Justin Wolfers:

    The claim that community banks should have a Fed board seat is no stronger than the claim that trade unions should, or mid-sized banks or (JPMorgan CEO) Jamie Dimon, it's a bad practice and not consistent with central bank practices around the world.

  4. Rick Ector:

    In this current day and age of global terrorism even the government can't protect every single one of us despite what they claim and how many civil liberties they trample upon during their efforts in the name of national security. Our government should instead play to our strengths - being lovers of freedom - and support and encourage us to arm ourselves from all predators regardless of their specific ideologies and aims: terrorism, racism, sociopathy, and violent crime. THAT would be REAL national security.

  5. Deputy Attorney General Jim Davis:

    We had a team go out immediately and we found out there was some truth to the claim that there was price gouging going on at the hotel.
