English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. notwithstanding(conj)

    However simply waives discussion, and (like the archaic howbeit) says "be that as it may, this is true;" nevertheless concedes the truth of what precedes, but claims that what follows is none the less true; notwithstanding marshals the two statements face to face, admits the one and its seeming contradiction to the other, while insisting that it can not, after all, withstand the other; as, notwithstanding the force of the enemy is superior, we shall conquer. Yet and still are weaker than notwithstanding, while stronger than but. Tho and altho make as little as possible of the concession, dropping it, as it were, incidentally; as, "tho we are guilty, thou art good;" to say "we are guilty, but thou art good," would make the concession of guilt more emphatic. Compare BUT; YET.

    Synonyms:
    altho(ugh), but, howbeit, however, nevertheless, still, tho(ugh), yet

  2. notwithstanding(prep)

    Notwithstanding simply states that circumstances shall not be or have not been allowed to withstand; despite and in spite of refer primarily to personal and perhaps spiteful opposition; as, he failed notwithstanding his good intentions; or, he persevered in spite of the most bitter hostility. When despite and in spite of are applied to inanimate things, it is with something of personification; "in spite of the storm" is said as if the storm had a hostile purpose to oppose the undertaking.

    despite, in spite of

How to use notwithstanding in a sentence?

  1. Jeffrey Lowe:

    For women, there are fewer women partners than male partners at these law firms, so fewer mentorship opportunities for people who are like them, women will also tell you, notwithstanding the strides I think have been made in society, there is still a sense that the old boy's club can still be hard to crack. If you're not part of it, you're missing out on the opportunity to inherit clients that a male partner might be able to.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Anyone who dares to speak or live positively notwithstanding his or her plight or ordeal and as well, he or she is always grateful to God for all things. Then, God will surely sooner or later make him or her a wonder to himself or herself or the world and even to the posterity ahead. Let's take king David as a case study. He (David) spoke or lived positively and all his lifetime he was often praisefulbor grateful to God even against all odds. No wonder, God took him to be a man after his own heart and eventually he (God) made him (David) the most celebrated king of Israel. Moreover, even his son Solomon was not left out. As a matter of fact, God also made him (Solomon) a wonder by endowing him with divine wisdom or great insight and that's why he was able to write 3,000 proverbs and 1,005 songs. Above all, he (Solomon) became the richest or wisest king ever according to the scripture. Now, do you long to be a wonder all-round? If Yes, then go ahead and think, speak, live and act positively. Also, dare to be grateful to God for all things even against all odds. For, God is ever ready or capable to equally make you a wonder to your ownself, generation, the world or posterity ahead. -Emeasoba George

  3. David Letterman:

    I would just like to say,' Don, it's Dave. Remember me ? I want to talk to Donald Trump.' Because I now don't know which is the real Donald Trump, and if the Donald Trump that I was talking to [ back then ] was the real Donald Trump, how do you get to be the guy Donald Trump is now ? politics notwithstanding -- let's just say everything is great and he's done a great job, but he still behaves the way he behaves -- who behaves like that ?!

  4. Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff:

    We will make every effort to make sure that notwithstanding the president or his allies' desire to out and exact political revenge on this whistleblower, that our committee is never used for that purpose.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    True love and kindness should be reciprocated. Yes! but if the reverse is the case, just keep on showing true love and kindness to everyone (notwithstanding). ~Emeasoba George
