English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. instill

    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, educate, enlighten, give instruction, give lessons, inculcate, indoctrinate, inform, initiate, instruct, nurture, school, teach, train, tutor

  5. Axelle Lemaire:

    Emmanuel Macron is becoming more vocal in his criticism of the EU. He is still a strong supporter of the European project and its ambition but he has been critical of its transparency, democracy and efficiency and whether it is creating jobs and prosperity. i think he is sincere in his request for reform. It is not possible to accept the situation as it is, and people don't accept it as it is. So this means dealing with Germany, especially if it is run again by Angela Merkel, by saying 'let's try to re-instill ambition in the European project'. I think he will carry out a reform agenda.
