English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. doom

    To condemn is to pass judicial sentence or render judgment or decision against. We may censure silently; we condemn ordinarily by open and formal utterance. Condemn is more final than blame or censure; a condemned criminal has had his trial; a condemned building can not stand; a condemned ship can not sail. A person is convicted when his guilt is made clearly manifest to others; in somewhat archaic use, a person is said to be convicted when guilt is brought clearly home to his own conscience (convict in this sense being allied with convince, which see under PERSUADE); in legal usage one is said to be convicted only by the verdict of a jury. In stating the penalty of an offense, the legal word sentence is now more common than condemn; as, he was sentenced to imprisonment; but it is good usage to say, he was condemned to imprisonment. To denounce is to make public or official declaration against, especially in a violent and threatening manner.

    From the pulpits in the northern States Burr was denounced as an assassin.

    Coffin Building the Nation ch. 10, p. 137. [Harper & Bros. '83.]

    To doom is to condemn solemnly and consign to evil or destruction or to predetermine to an evil destiny; an inferior race in presence of a superior is doomed to subjugation or extinction. Compare ARRAIGN; REPROVE.

    Synonyms:
    blame, censure, condemn, convict, denounce, reprobate, reprove, sentence

    Antonyms:
    absolve, acquit, applaud, approve, exonerate, justify, pardon, pardon, praise

How to use doom in a sentence?

  1. Zig Ziglar:

    Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don't hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.

  2. Lee Habasonda:

    This is giving the ruling party sleepless nights, the Patriotic Front has heavily relied on votes from the Copperbelt and if this situation is not handled carefully, it could just spell doom for the ruling party.

  3. Margaret Mead:

    The prophet who fails to present a bearable alternative and yet preaches doom is part of the trap that he postulates. Not only does he picture us caught in a tremendous man-made or God-made trap from which there is no escape, but we must also listen to him day in, day out, describe how the trap is inexorably closing. To such prophecies the human race, as presently bred and educated and situated, is incapable of listening. So some dance and some immolate themselves as human torches; some take drugs and some artists spill their creativity in sets of randomly placed dots on a white ground.

  4. Hugo Martin:

    Games were generally like' Mario' and Nintendo, doom.

  5. Stephen Innes:

    It's not economic uncertainty we should be worried about rather its the doom and gloom economic realities that the key forward-looking manufacturing PMI's are telling us about the dismal health of this rapidly deteriorating global macro environment.
