English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. glut

    To satisfy is to furnish just enough to meet physical, mental, or spiritual desire. To sate or satiate is to gratify desire so fully as for a time to extinguish it. To cloy or surfeit is to gratify to the point of revulsion or disgust. Glut is a strong but somewhat coarse word applied to the utmost satisfaction of vehement appetites and passions; as, to glut a vengeful spirit with slaughter; we speak of glutting the market with a supply so excessive as to extinguish the demand. Much less than is needed to satisfy may suffice a frugal or abstemious person; less than a sufficiency may content one of a patient and submissive spirit. Compare PAY; REQUITE.

    cloy, content, fill, sate, satiate, satisfy, suffice, surfeit

    check, deny, disappoint, refuse, restrain, restrict, starve, stint, straiten, tantalize

How to use glut in a sentence?

  1. John Kilduff:

    The bandwagon trade just two months ago was that we will hit $ 60, but now $ 35 is looking like more of a reality, we're in a vicious cycle, with no sign of this glut in oil products disappearing anytime soon, while any cutback by refiners is backing up crude into the system. This tells me the rally is over.

  2. Karamjit Singh:

    It has always been compared with Hong Kong and there are a lot of parallels. But it's trading below half of Hong Kong's real estate prices in the luxury market, there are a combination of factors (for this) but the key central would be government policies and a very focused glut of supply focused around the luxury market.

  3. Stephen Jay Gould:

In fact, a precisely opposite situation prevails: biologists have documented a veritable glut of cases for rapid and eminently measurable evolution on timescales of years and decades.”

  4. Kaushik Neogy:

  5. John Kilduff:

    We're in a vicious cycle, with no sign of this glut in oil products disappearing anytime soon, while any cutback by refiners is backing up crude into the system. This tells me the rally is over.
