English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. drill

    Exercise, in the ordinary sense, is the easy natural action of any power; exertion is the putting of any power to strain and tax. An exercise-drive for a horse is so much as will develop strength and health and not appreciably weary. But by qualifying adjectives we may bring exercise up to the full sense of exertion; as, violent exercise. Exercise is action taken at any time with a view to employing, maintaining, or increasing power, or merely for enjoyment; practise is systematic exercise with a view to the acquirement of facility and skill in some pursuit; a person takes a walk for exercise, or takes time for practise on the piano. Practise is also used of putting into action and effect what one has learned or holds as a theory; as, the practise of law or medicine; a profession of religion is good, but the practise of it is better. Drill is systematic, rigorous, and commonly enforced practise under a teacher or commander. Compare HABIT.

    Synonyms:
    act, action, activity, application, employment, exercise, exertion, occupation, operation, performance, practise, use

    Antonyms:
    idleness, inaction, inactivity, relaxation, rest

How to use drill in a sentence?

  1. Kate Andersen Brower:

    I think [ Be Best ] is well-intentioned, and it showcases how well the first lady does when she interacts with children, but I think it's too broad and unfocused, if President Trump could drill down on one part of it, like opioid addiction and babies born to mothers who are addicted, it would be more successful. Being single-mindedly focused would also serve to help people see President Trump contributions to this administration, which I think get lost amid the turbulence.

  2. Chief Executive Jim Volker:

    We will still drill 265 wells and we're confident in their returns at current even $50 oil prices.

  3. Pius Rolheiser:

    There's a significant amount of work between where we are today and where we would need to be if we were to drill a well by 2020, it's our belief the current license term provided insufficient time to do the work we believe necessary.

  4. Jim Umpleby:

    Oil prices, drill rig counts and our customers' fleet utilization rates continue to remain low, based on these factors we don't see a significant increase in demand for our products for the remainder of 2016.

  5. William Mathis:

    There's a lot of drill and practice and just incredibly dull teaching.
