English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. dispense

    To allot or assign may be to make an arbitrary division; the same is true of distribute or divide. That which is apportioned is given by some fixed rule, which is meant to be uniform and fair; as, representatives are apportioned among the States according to population. To dispense is to give out freely; as, the sun dispenses light and heat. A thing is appropriated to or for a specific purpose (to which it thus becomes proper, in the original sense of being its own); money appropriated by Congress for one purpose can not be expended for any other. One may apportion what he only holds in trust; he shares what is his own. Compare ALLOT.

    allot, appoint, apportion, appropriate, assign, deal, distribute, divide, grant, share

    cling to, collect, consolidate, divide arbitrarily, gather together, keep together, receive, retain

How to use dispense in a sentence?

  1. Nancy Young:

    It may not be covered, or well covered, by insurance, if the child is funded through public aid, for instance, there may not be providers in the area that will dispense hearing aids.

  2. Cyril Connolly:

    The only happy talkers are dandies who extract pleasure from the very perishability of their material and who would not be able to tolerate the isolation of all other forms of composition; for most good talkers, when they have run down, are miserable; they know that they have betrayed themselves, that they have taken material which should have a life of its own, to dispense it in noises upon the air.

  3. Edwin Griffioen:

    Because the air pressure is so much lower in an aeroplane than at sea level, a traditional beer tap will not work as it will only dispense a huge amount of foam, we do have dispensers that work on air pressure, but these were too big to fit in a plane.

  4. Niall Mottram:

    This targeted dispense technology has the potential to dramatically reduce the amount of pesticides and herbicides that we apply to crops today; potentially by up to 99 percent. It does this by selectively targeting only weeds and infestations in a whole field, so that healthy crop and soil doesn't have pesticide applied to it. Through that we can massively reduce both cost and environmental impact.
