English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. curb

    Govern carries the idea of authoritative administration or some exercise of authority that is at once effective and continuous; control is effective, but may be momentary or occasional. One controls what he holds or can hold at will absolutely in check; as, a skilful horseman controls a spirited horse; a person controls his temper; we say to one who is excited, "control yourself." A person commands another when he has, or claims, the right to make that other do his will, with power of inflicting penalty if not obeyed; he controls another whom he can effectually prevent from doing anything contrary to his will; he governs one whom he actually does cause, regularly or constantly, to obey his will; a parent may command a child whom he can not govern or control. The best teachers are not greatly prone to command, but govern or control their pupils largely by other means. Command is, however, often used in the sense of securing, as well as requiring, submission or obedience, as when we speak of a commanding influence; a man commands the situation when he can shape events as he pleases; a fortress commands the region when no enemy can pass against its resistance. Govern implies the exercise of knowledge and judgment as well as power. To rule is more absolute and autocratic than to govern; to sway is to move by quiet but effectual influence; to mold is not only to influence feeling and action, but to shape character; to manage is to secure by skilful contrivance the doing of one's will by those whom one can not directly control; a wise mother, by gentle means, sways the feelings and molds the lives of her children; to be able to manage servants is an important element of good housekeeping. The word reign, once so absolute, now simply denotes that one holds the official station of sovereign in a monarchy, with or without effective power; the Queen of England reigns; the Czar of Russia both reigns and rules.

    Synonyms:
    command, control, direct, govern, influence, manage, mold, reign, reign over, restrain, rule, sway

    Antonyms:
    be in subjection, be subject, comply, obey, submit, yield

How to use curb in a sentence?

  1. Houston Police spokesman Kese Smith:

    Her vehicle hopped the curb in front of the store and crashed through the front entrance.

  2. Adam Leventhal:

    If we can determine if there is a potential causal link that is consistent across studies, then we can design interventions to curb media exposure. Even simple educational information to let teachers, parents, and pediatric health professionals know that there could be an increased risk when they talk with their teens about digital media use might be helpful.

  3. Emily Dhurandar:

    People who find themselveshungryafter completing mentally-demanding tasks should consider adding a bout of exercise to their schedule to help curb their appetite.

  4. Dominic Manecke:

    One young black female took a step off( the curb) and the cop kind of took that, I guess,' sideways.' Instantly, a white man kind of came to Joyce Beatty defense and then was instantly body-slammed to the ground. Joyce Beatty runs out into the street to hold back the cop and the protesters. Another cop comes up with his bike and pushes Joyce Beatty out of the way... and then it's naturally getting heated... that one cop pulls, I don't know why he does it, he pulls out his Mace and does what he does.

  5. Ahmed Awad:

    We need the U.S. government to continue to lend its political and logistical support to the legitimate government and the Arab coalition, this will, in turn, help reinstating the government institutions, which will curb AQAP operations and lead to its demise. The conflict, according to the U.N., has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people, displaced millions and gutted the infrastructure of the country, already considered the poorest in the Middle East before the war began. Over the past few months, Yemen has been devastated not only by bombs and bullets, but has experienced a severe return of the once almost extinct – and under normal circumstances highly treatable – cholera. American involvement in the fight is increasing. Although the U.S. was forced to shutter Yemen Embassy in Washington D.C. in Yemen in 2015 and pull out special operations forces pursuing AQAP operatives as the conflict spiraled, the American military isincreasinglyembroiled in the embattled nation. U.S. troops have returned in small numbers, and the Trump administration has vastly accelerated the number of operations in the region in recent months. America’s engagement inside Yemen and its backing of The Saudi-led coalition, which supports Mubarak and the rest of the internationally-recognized government, is steeped in controversy. Government forces, Houthi rebels and Al-Qaeda factions control different parts of war-torn Yemen Much of the international media and human rights bodies have accused the U.S. of propping up a bloody Saudi-initiated war, a criticism Mubarak sharply denies. Some of the criticism may reflect a misunderstanding of the history and nature of the conflict. While many have framed the war as a Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict, Mubarak insists the two groups of Muslims, Shia and Sunni, have co-existed in Yemen for a very long time.
