  1. make up

    To add is to increase by adjoining or uniting: in distinction from multiply, which is to increase by repeating. To augment a thing is to increase it by any means, but this word is seldom used directly of material objects; we do not augment a house, a farm, a nation, etc. We may enlarge a house, a farm, or an empire, extend influence or dominion, augment riches, power or influence, attach or annex a building to one that it adjoins or papers to the document they refer to, annex a clause or a codicil, affix a seal or a signature, annex a territory, attach a condition to a promise. A speaker may amplify a discourse by a fuller treatment throughout than was originally planned, or he may append or subjoin certain remarks without change of what has gone before. We cast up or sum up an account, though add up and make up are now more usual expressions.

    Synonyms:
    add, adjoin, affix, amplify, annex, append, attach, augment, cast up, enlarge, extend, increase, join on, subjoin, sum up

    Antonyms:
    abstract, deduct, diminish, dissever, lessen, reduce, remove, subtract, withdraw

    Preposition:
    Other items are to be added to the account.

How to use make up in a sentence?

  1. Annie Clark:

    Bribery will not work on Senator Senator Collins, extortion will not work on Senator Collins. And anybody who thinks these tactics would work on Senator Collins obviously doesn't know Senator Collins. This crowdedfunded money to pressure Senator Collins is based on a quid pro quo -- you vote the way we want and we will keep more than a million dollars away from your opponent -- vote against us and we give Senator Collins the money. It is basically a bribe. Senator Collins will make up Senator Collins mind based on the merits of the nomination. Threats or other attempts to bully Senator Collins will not play a factor in Senator Collins decision making whatsoever.

  2. President Trump:

    In many cases they literally make up sources. You know, ‘nine sources in the White House have said.’ There are no nine sources.

  3. Matt Schlapp:

    When you come to CPAC as a presidential candidate you're paying respects to conservative voters who make up two-thirds of those who pull the levers in these states, i think it's a big mistake for him not to be here.

  4. Montesquieu:

    What orators lack in depth, they make up to you in length.

  5. Life President Kristen Day:

    Planned Parenthood really wants to target and silence pro-life democrats who make up a third of the Party. They bully and target pro-life Democrats into silence instead of dialogue. They do not represent Democratic principles that call for diversity and inclusion.
