English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. cloy

    To satisfy is to furnish just enough to meet physical, mental, or spiritual desire. To sate or satiate is to gratify desire so fully as for a time to extinguish it. To cloy or surfeit is to gratify to the point of revulsion or disgust. Glut is a strong but somewhat coarse word applied to the utmost satisfaction of vehement appetites and passions; as, to glut a vengeful spirit with slaughter; we speak of glutting the market with a supply so excessive as to extinguish the demand. Much less than is needed to satisfy may suffice a frugal or abstemious person; less than a sufficiency may content one of a patient and submissive spirit. Compare PAY; REQUITE.

    content, fill, glut, sate, satiate, satisfy, suffice, surfeit

    Antonyms:
    check, deny, disappoint, refuse, restrain, restrict, starve, stint, straiten, tantalize

    Preposition:
