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. Vincent DeVito:

    On its merits, the claim is legitimate.

  2. Ken Cook:

    There has never been a president who has actively pursued an agenda so hostile to the environment and public health at the behest of polluters than Mr. Trump, it's absurd for President Trump to claim any environmental credentials when his administration continues to drive a destructive pro-polluter agenda at the expense of the American people.

  3. Anton Siluanov:

    Ukraine cannot claim that it is ready in good faith to negotiate and at the same time insist that they will only consider the variant which was already offered to private creditors.

  4. Carolyn Maloney:

    Schumer, D-N.Y., said. HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE POSTMASTER GENERAL AFTER CLAIMS HE PRESSURED EMPLOYEES TO MAKE CAMPAIGN DONATIONS A spokesperson for the USPS did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Earlier Tuesday, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., also called for DeJoys suspension as Carolyn Maloney announced a new investigation into DeJoy from the Reform Committee, which Carolyn Maloney chairs. FILE - In this Aug. 24, 2020, file photo, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testifies during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on the Postal Service on Capitol Hill in Washington. ( Tom Williams/Pool via AP) The Washington Post reportedthis weekend that while DeJoy wasCEO of New Breed Logistics, Tom Williams/Pool via AP or Tom Williams/Pool via AP aides pressured employees towrite checks and attend GOP fundraisers at his mansion, five people who worked for New Breed told the paper.DeJoy, a megadonor for theRepublican Party, would reimburse the employees through bonuses, an arrangement that is unlawful, The Washington Post reported Sunday. If these allegations are true, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy could face criminal exposurenot only for Postmaster General Louis DeJoy actions in North Carolina, but also for lying to Reform Committee under oath, we will be investigating this issue, but I believe the Board of Governors must take emergency action to immediately suspend Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who they never should have selected in the first place. HOUSE DEMOCRATS SUBPOENA USPSS DEJOY FOR HIS CALENDAR, DOCUMENTS ON MAIL DELAYS Maloney was referencing testimony DeJoy gave Reform Committee on Aug. 24 when hedenied pressuring his employees to donate to President Trump, calling such a claim.

  5. Peter Hotez:

    Intuitively, Baylor College of Medicine doesn't make sense to claim 92 % protection just based on 20 events. But we'll have to see the data, the regulators need to see the data and a regulatory authority that has experience should review the data such as the EMA, the European Medicines Agency. They're the ones that really need to look at this and say, well, you know, this is too small, really, for you to say is 92 % effective.
