English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. compose

    Allay and alleviate are closely kindred in signification, and have been often interchanged in usage. But, in strictness, to allay is to lay to rest, quiet or soothe that which is excited; to alleviate, on the other hand, is to lighten a burden. We allay suffering by using means to soothe and tranquilize the sufferer; we alleviate suffering by doing something toward removal of the cause, so that there is less to suffer; where the trouble is wholly or chiefly in the excitement, to allay the excitement is virtually to remove the trouble; as, to allay rage or panic; we alleviate poverty, but do not allay it. Pacify, directly from the Latin, and appease, from the Latin through the French, signify to bring to peace; to mollify is to soften; to calm, quiet, or tranquilize is to make still; compose, to place together, unite, adjust to a calm and settled condition; to soothe (originally to assent to, humor) is to bring to pleased quietude. We allay excitement, appease a tumult, calm agitation, compose our feelings or countenance, pacify the quarrelsome, quiet the boisterous or clamorous, soothe grief or distress. Compare ALLEVIATE.

    Synonyms:
    allay, alleviate, appease, calm, mollify, pacify, quiet, soothe, still, tranquilize

    Antonyms:
    agitate, arouse, excite, fan, kindle, provoke, rouse, stir, stir up

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Après la longue période de temps chaud et sec, est la première pluie de la saison la création d'un parfum exquis éloquente dans l'air - une odeur terreuse qui imprègne et flotte tout autour de nous, rafraîchissant nos esprits et de rajeunir nos vies. Je aime ce puissant parfum de séduction - émanant de l'union tant attendue de pluie tendre et douce tombe à terre soif sèche, et d'inciter une intimité instantanée dans l'air. Intéressant, cet élégant parfum envoûtant a un nom aussi. ça se appelle "petrichor"; un mot composé dérivé de la langue grecque - comprenant "petra" qui signifie «la pierre», et «ichor» qui signifie «le fluide qui coule dans les veines des dieux" selon la mythologie grecque. à mon avis, petrichor est sûrement un parfum divin qui doit être un cadeau du pouvoir suprême. Si ma vie était un parfum, je aurais sûrement l'aime à sentir comme Petrichor.
