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. Emeasoba George:

    When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. That is to say, whenever you are challenged. You are expected to press on and never to give up. For, there is an uncommon reward for perseverance. And which is reserved to be reaped only by the indomitables. Guess what? the uncommon reward is nothing else but genuine success. Lest you forget, the patient dog always eats the fattest bone (mark you). -Emeasoba George

Staffers are available by phone at 800-273-8255 (Press 1), online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat, and via text at 838255. The volume of phone calls the Crisis Line receives is staggering. The VA told Fox News that since October 31, 2017, the Veterans Crisis Line has fielded approximately 222,000 calls from veterans who are having thoughts of suicide. That is in addition to the 49,000 calls from family members or friends who are concerned about a veteran who is considering suicide. That breaks down to nearly 950 calls from veterans (or nearly 40 calls per hour) every day since Halloween, and more than 200 calls a day from friends and family. Lutz, who li ves in Florida, is affectionately referred to by many in the veterans' community as.
