English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. preserve

    Keep, signifying generally to have and retain in possession, is the terse, strong Saxon term for many acts which are more exactly discriminated by other words.

Keep in the sense of guard or defend implies that the defense is effectual. Compare CELEBRATE; RESTRAIN.
