English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. educate

    To teach is simply to communicate knowledge; to instruct (originally, to build in or into, put in order) is to impart knowledge with special method and completeness; instruct has also an authoritative sense nearly equivalent to command. To educate is to draw out or develop harmoniously the mental powers, and, in the fullest sense, the moral powers as well. To train is to direct to a certain result powers already existing. Train is used in preference to educate when the reference is to the inferior animals or to the physical powers of man; as, to train a horse; to train the hand or eye. To discipline is to bring into habitual and complete subjection to authority; discipline is a severe word, and is often used as a euphemism for punish; to be thoroughly effective in war, soldiers must be disciplined as well as trained. To nurture is to furnish the care and sustenance necessary for physical, mental, and moral growth; nurture is a more tender and homelike word than educate. Compare EDUCATION.

    Synonyms:
    discipline, drill, enlighten, give instruction, give lessons, inculcate, indoctrinate, inform, initiate, instill, instruct, nurture, school, teach, train, tutor

How to use educate in a sentence?

  1. Rob Slater:

    I understand that we need to make space for the growing population coming to our cities but people need to realize we need natural areas in order to survive, whether it's aesthetic or not, natural areas provide ecosystem services that people don't actually see. Often it can feel a little bit like a losing battle. People do appreciate it but I think we need to create awareness and educate people that we need the environment to live.

  2. Beth Wilkinson:

    He thought the purpose was to educate other doctors.

  3. James Tabery:

    The study does raise a troubling implication – the thought that the patient-physician relationship is compromised by these biological explanations. I would hope we could use this information to educate aspiring clinicians so that they don’t (fall) victim to that trend, to bring it to their attention so they can actively combat it.

  4. Kelly Osbourne:

    I didn't know what was really going on in this country because I just thought that simply being not racist was enough. It's not, it's actually not, you have to be actively not racist and educate yourself and learn, and don't be afraid to make a mistake, everybody's so afraid of cancel culture.

  5. Theodore Roosevelt:

    To educate a man in mind, and not morals is to educate a menace to society.
