English Synonyms and Antonyms

  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. Donald Trump:

    Shame on those who make up false stories of assault to try to get publicity for themselves, or sell a book, or carry out a political agenda -- like Julie Swetnick who falsely accused Justice Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it's just as bad for people to believe it, particularly when there is zero evidence. Worse still for a dying publication to try to prop itself up by peddling fake news -- it's an epidemic.

  2. Republican Daron Shaw:

    Political science tells us the Democrats will need a substantial edge in the national vote, maybe 10 points, to make up for gerrymandering and vote concentrations so they can take the House.

  3. Barbara Carvalho:

    Those previous numbers cited were not of a full survey of Latinos but the result from the smaller subgroup that make up a survey of Americans. The margin of error was wide and the results should not be taken to conclude what would have been found among this very diverse group had we done a larger study of only Hispanic and Latino Americans.

  4. Gianni Infantino:

    Michel Platini is a candidate for the FIFA presidency, although obviously he cannot campaign, why should Mr. Platini withdraw his candidacy if he is convinced he has done nothing wrong? Let us give him the chance to defend himself, to clear his name and everyone can make up his own opinion.

  5. Eddie Crosby:

    If he got it in for you he was going to have you, i could understand the first time but you just don't stop somebody and make up an excuse.
