English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. pay off

    To repay or to retaliate, to punish or to reward, may be to make some return very inadequate to the benefit or injury received, or the right or wrong done; but to requite (according to its etymology) is to make so full and adequate a return as to quit oneself of all obligation of favor or hostility, of punishment or reward. Requite is often used in the more general sense of recompense or repay, but always with the suggestion, at least, of the original idea of full equivalent; when one speaks of requiting kindness with ingratitude, the expression gains force from the comparison of the actual with the proper and appropriate return. Compare PAY.

    Synonyms:
    avenge, compensate, pay, punish, quit, reciprocate, recompense, remunerate, repay, requite, retaliate, return, revenge, reward, satisfy, settle with

    Antonyms:
    absolve, acquit, excuse, forget, forgive, neglect, overlook, pardon, pardon, pass over, slight

    Preposition:
    To requite injury with injury is human, but not Christian.

  1. Liu Ligang:

    But China's case is a bit different, if you look at the last six years, firms have leveraged up quite a lot, previously bank loans were at quite high interest rates. If China can relax monetary policy further, firms could have a great incentive to borrow at a lower rate, and use them to pay off high-yield debt. Merely doing so will alleviate firms' financial burdens and also the risk of default.
