English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. press

    To plead for one is to employ argument or persuasion, or both in his behalf, usually with earnestness or importunity; similarly one may be said to plead for himself or for a cause, etc., or with direct object, to plead a case; in legal usage, pleading is argumentative, but in popular usage, pleading always implies some appeal to the feelings. One argues a case solely on rational grounds and supposably with fair consideration of both sides; he advocates one side for the purpose of carrying it, and under the influence of motives that may range all the way from cold self-interest to the highest and noblest impulses; he pleads a cause, or pleads for a person with still more intense feeling. Beseech, entreat, and implore imply impassioned earnestness, with direct and tender appeal to personal considerations. Press and urge imply more determined or perhaps authoritative insistence. Solicit is a weak word denoting merely an attempt to secure one's consent or cooperation, sometimes by sordid or corrupt motives.

    Synonyms:
    advocate, argue, ask, beg, beseech, entreat, implore, plead, solicit, urge

    Preposition:
    Plead with the tyrant for the captive; plead against the oppression or the oppressor; plead to the indictment; at the bar; before the court; in open court.

How to use press in a sentence?

  1. Mark Updegrove:

    He had total faith in Lady Bird, luci and Lynda Bird Johnson, the Bird Johnson daughters, both traveled for parts, and there were wives of senators and congressmen who joined, Lady Bird's press secretary, also a woman -- it was not just an intrepid and heroic act, it was all conducted by women at a time when women were as marginalized as people of color, who had been oppressed throughout The South.

  2. Rohan Schoeman:

    APPLE WATCH CATCHES GRANDMOTHERS HEART CONDITION, POSSIBLY SAVING HER LIFE The couple went missing in a snowstorm after spending a weekend with friends on November 3. Rescuers located Marsh in time after her husband sent friends photographs of their location. She was flown by air ambulance to the ValldHebron Hospital in Barcelona, where she was connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine. The machine stands in for the heart and lungs, pumping blood through the arteries and heating it, which raises the body temperature.Doctors believed she could survive if they treated the hypothermia. This is an exceptional case on a global scale, Eduard Argudo, a doctor from the Vall dHebron hospital told a press conference.There are practically no cases of people being revived after their heart has stopped for so long. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUT LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER When she arrived at the hospital, Mashsheart was showing no electrical activity and her kidneys and lungs were not functioning, doctors said. Eduard Argudo said the sharp fall in her body temperature may have saved her as the cold preserved her organs. Six hours after entering cardio-respiratory arrest, Marshs heart began to beat naturally again. Marsh, who spent 11 days in hospital recovering, has not suffered any long-term brain damage but has trouble moving her hands which were affected by the cold. When I went home I had damage to my hands. I could not do up my buttons on trousers or put in my earrings. These are small things which are going to get better, she said. Rohan Schoeman, Rohan Schoeman, 36, who is South African and works as a teacher, said the couple had spent the weekend with friends but left early morning without them. At one point the snowfall became very heavy. We found a rock and tried to use it for shelter to avoid adverse weather conditions. Once visibility improved, I could see that our friends had tried to contact us, audrey was losing consciousness so I tried to send some photos to our friends of where we were.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Never quit, not even when you bust your gut i.e. not even when you've made a strenuous effort. For, you ought to press on until you make it.

  4. Lokman Tsui:

    Everyone in Hong Kong is self censoring, in the last couple of years, there has been a sustained attack — not just on press freedom, but on rights in general.

  5. Dan Gainor:

    Obama started feuding with opposition press during the campaign, kicking off reporters from his campaign plane after their outlets endorsed his opponent. Obama then spent his whole presidency attacking media critics -- CNBC, Fox News and Drudge among them -- yet somehow the major media didn't mind.
