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.

How to use glut in a sentence?

  1. 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.

  2. Philip Petursson:

    At this point I would say you'd still want to be cautious on the miners as well as the energy sector, i think the pop today is really in relation to China and expectations of continued stimulus. How much that helps to prop up the metals is subject to pretty wide debate. We're still in a supply glut situation.

  3. Matt Smith of U.S.-based ClipperData:

    The latest (U.S. regulatory) CFTC data show that speculators increased their shorts (aka bearish bets) by the biggest volume on record in last week's data for WTI crude. This is the biggest increase since data began back in 2006, dragging the net long position in WTI to its lowest since February, another bearish development from the CFTC data has been gasoline positioning. Speculative positions in gasoline have moved to a record net short position as hedge funds bet on an ongoing gasoline supply glut.

  4. Frank Klumpp:

    There is much talk about the product glut replacing the oil glut, and this is a worrisome indicator for crude demand.

  5. Stephen Jay Gould:

    ... many folks take them seriously because they just ‘know’ that evolution can never be seen in the immediate here and now. 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.”
