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

    Preposition:
