English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. interfere

    To interpose is to place or come between other things or persons, usually as a means of obstruction or prevention of some effect or result that would otherwise occur, or be expected to take place. Intercede and interpose are used in a good sense; intermeddle always in a bad sense, and interfere frequently so. To intercede is to come between persons who are at variance, and plead with the stronger in behalf of the weaker. One may interpose with authority; he intercedes by petition. To intermeddle is to thrust oneself into the concerns of others with a petty officiousness; meddling commonly arises from idle curiosity; "every fool will be meddling," Prov. xx, 3; to interfere is to intrude into others' affairs with more serious purpose, with or without acknowledged right or propriety. Intercept is applied to an object that may be seized or stopped while in transit; as, to intercept a letter or a messenger; interrupt is applied to an action which might or should be continuous, but is broken in upon (Latin rumpere, to break) by some disturbing power; as, the conversation was interrupted. One who arbitrates or mediates must do so by the request or at least with the consent of the contending parties; the other words of the group imply that he steps in of his own accord.

    Synonyms:
    arbitrate, intercede, intercept, intermeddle, interpose, interrupt, meddle, mediate

    Antonyms:
    avoid, hold aloof, hold off, keep aloof, keep away, keep clear, keep out, let alone, let be, retire, stand aside, stand away, stand back, stand off, withdraw

    Preposition:
    Interpose between the combatants; in the matter.

How to use interfere in a sentence?

  1. Rick Rossein:

  2. William Barr:

    The special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Do you know? No matter how bad things appear to you currently. God can still make it up to become good enough. Do you also know? No matter how miserable your condition seems to you. God can still make it enviable. That is to say alternatively, no condition or matter is too difficult for God to interfere and intervene too. I mean, nothing is impossible with God SCRIPTURE REFERENCE ( Luke 1 : 37). Oh! yes, impossibility doesn't exist in God's dictionary i.e. the scripture. Besides, he (God) doesn't change and cannot change come what may. But guess what? He (God) can effortlessly and unquestionably change anything and anybody at any time. However, living faith and patience are expected of you, in order for him (God) to turn around your condition or life for the better or for the best. - Emeasoba George

  4. Fred Santos:

    My concern was that politics might interfere with justice in the legal system.

  5. Robert Mueller:

    Russian efforts to interfere in our political system, and the essential question of whether those efforts involved the President Donald Trump campaign, required investigation. In that investigation, it was critical for us( and, before us, the FBI) to obtain full and accurate information. Likewise, it was critical for Congress to obtain accurate information from its witnesses. When a subject lies to investigators, it strikes at the core of the government's efforts to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable. It may ultimately impede those efforts.
