English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. practise

    Exercise, in the ordinary sense, is the easy natural action of any power; exertion is the putting of any power to strain and tax. An exercise-drive for a horse is so much as will develop strength and health and not appreciably weary. But by qualifying adjectives we may bring exercise up to the full sense of exertion; as, violent exercise. Exercise is action taken at any time with a view to employing, maintaining, or increasing power, or merely for enjoyment; practise is systematic exercise with a view to the acquirement of facility and skill in some pursuit; a person takes a walk for exercise, or takes time for practise on the piano. Practise is also used of putting into action and effect what one has learned or holds as a theory; as, the practise of law or medicine; a profession of religion is good, but the practise of it is better. Drill is systematic, rigorous, and commonly enforced practise under a teacher or commander. Compare HABIT.

    Synonyms:
    act, action, activity, application, drill, employment, exercise, exertion, occupation, operation, performance, use

    Antonyms:
    idleness, inaction, inactivity, relaxation, rest

How to use practise in a sentence?

  1. Mahabharata:

    Death comes, and makes a man his prey, A man whose powers are yet unspent; Like one on gathering flowers intent, Whose thoughts are turned another way. Begin betimes to practise good, Lest fate surprise thee unawares Amid thy round of schemes and cares; To-morrow?s task to-day conclude.*

  2. Gilles Muller:

    If I were coaching a young player I would teach them to serve and volley, 95 percent of the top 100 are not doing it so that means they never practise to prepare for a serve and volleyer coming at them. If you mix it up and throw in some serve and volley it makes the returner take more risks.

  3. Julius Maada Bio:

    Some of our families practise a culture of silence and indifference towards sexual violence, leaving victims even more traumatized, we as a nation must stand up and address this scourge.

  4. Sir Walter Scott, Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.:

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive!

  5. Alexander Zverev:

    I'm young, so I might as well stay on court and practise a little bit, it's the best, a five-set match. It is the first time Alexander Zverev has reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam and Alexander Zverev will face Austrian seventh seed Dominic Thiem, who beat Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4. Nishikori took his only break point opportunity to claim the third set but Thiem, twice Roland Garros semi-finalist, regained control in the fourth. Former champion Novak Djokovic never looked in trouble as he booked a 12th quarter-final appearance in Paris with a 6-3 6-4 6-2 win over Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco. French Open runner-up Madison Keys advanced to the last eight without dropping a set, defeating Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-1 6-4. Up next for Keys is Kazakh Yulia Putintseva, who upset 26th seed Czech Barbora Strycova 6-4 6-3. American Stephens sprinted past Estonian Anett Kontaveit 6-2 6-0 to set up a potential semi-final meeting with Keys, whom Anett Kontaveit beat in last year's U.S. Open final. Highlights from day eight( all times GMT :. Play was suspended due to fading light, with Russian Daria Kasatkina leading 7-6( 5) 3-3 against second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki. Zverev's days of living dangerously go on. Roland Garros ready for' legendary' match against Zverev in Paris. Djokovic tames Verdasco to reach last eight. Italian Cecchinato upsets Goffin to reach last eight. American Stephens and Keys on collision course after overcoming French Open hump. Alexander Zverev rocks on by living on the edge. Keys enjoys Sunday stroll into French quarters. Djokovic douses Verdasco fire, unhappy with courts. Impressive Thiem downs Nishikori to set up Alexander Zverev clash.

At world number 72, Marco Cecchinato becomes the lowest-ranked man to reach the last eight in Paris since Latvian Ernests Gulbis( ranked 80) in 2008. He will next face 2016 champion Novak Djokovic for a place in the final four.
