English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. lower

    Abase refers only to outward conditions. "Exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high." Ezek. xxi, 26. Debase applies to quality or character. The coinage is debased by excess of alloy, the man by vice. Humble in present use refers chiefly to feeling of heart; humiliate to outward conditions; even when one is said to humble himself, he either has or affects to have humility of heart. To disgrace may be to bring or inflict odium upon others, but the word is chiefly and increasingly applied to such moral odium as one by his own acts brings upon himself; the noun disgrace retains more of the passive sense than the verb; he disgraced himself by his conduct; he brought disgrace upon his family. To dishonor a person is to deprive him of honor that should or might be given. To discredit one is to injure his reputation, as for veracity or solvency. A sense of unworthiness humbles; a shameful insult humiliates; imprisonment for crime disgraces. Degrade may refer to either station or character. An officer is degraded by being reduced to the ranks, disgraced by cowardice; vile practises degrade; drunkenness is a degrading vice. Misfortune or injustice may abase the good; nothing but their own ill-doing can debase or disgrace them.

    Synonyms:
    abase, bring low, cast down, debase, degrade, depress, discredit, disgrace, dishonor, humble, humiliate, reduce, sink

    Antonyms:
    advance, aggrandize, dignify, elevate, exalt, honor, promote, raise, uplift

How to use lower in a sentence?

  1. Jennifer Rupp:

    Memristors operate at a lower power consumption, with a faster speed, and with a higher volume density of information than anything we have based on silicon microchip transistors.

  2. Jeffrey Gundlach:

    The reason the markets aren't going lower is people are holding and hoping, the market bottoms out when people are selling and sold out - not when they are holding and hoping. I don't think you've seen real selling in risk assets broadly. Markets need buying to go up and they need volume to go up. They can fall just on gravity.

  3. David Schonfeld:

    In the first year, there's a lot more support that's provided in general by friends and families. There's the expectation that the first Thanksgiving, the first holiday, may be very difficult. Families and friends rally together, and the expectations are sometimes lower.' I just want to make it through my first Christmas,'.

  4. Albino Oliveira:

    Strong falls in bank shares in the last few days, especially Millennium BCP, drew the attention of investors who took advantage to get back into these stocks at lower prices amid high volatility, the lack of reaction in debt yields to the environment of political uncertainty shows the market is following the situation but is not stressing out about it.

  5. Gary Ross:

    We are moving to a new era where OPEC will no longer be managing the market while supply and demand will determine the price. The new Saudi oil leadership believes the market will dictate the price and that means higher volatility. We will see higher highs and lower lows.
