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. Thomas Otton:

    You press the 'on' button. A blue LED light appears. And, you play.

  2. Paul Ryan:

    Don’t look at the press releases, look at the bill.

  3. Oday Aboushi:

    Oday Aboushi said in an interview with The Associated Press. It doesnt happen much, but at the same time it comes with a lot of responsibility. And I feel like having this platform allows me to use that responsibility in a positive way. Oday Aboushi made Oday Aboushi second start of the season and the 36th of Oday Aboushi career on Sunday, helpingDetroit beat Washington30-27. The Lions made a statement as a team last summer, choosing not to practice as a form ofprotestafter Jacob Blake, Jacob Blake, was shot by police in Wisconsin. Oday Aboushi was front and center as Oday Aboushi teammates spoke to reporters about their decision outside the teams practice facility. And as a player in the powerful league, coincidently playing in an area with a large Arab American population, Oday Aboushi wants to use his voice to speak up for people in his parents homeland. There is this call of not staying silent and using our places of position to elevate those that feel unheard and unseen for such a long time, said U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Detroit. People can relate to us as activists me as a girl from southwest Detroit, him the NFL player. NFL WEEK 10 RECAP, SCORES AND STANDINGS Aboushis parents emigrated to New York after both were born in east Jerusalem, a part of the world that regularly makes international news. On Monday, European diplomats visited the site of an Israeli planned settlement expansion in eastJerusalemthat threatens to cut off parts of the city claimed by Palestinians from West Bank. Israel has long dismissed international criticism of settlement activity. Palestinians want a future state that includes east Jerusalem and the West Bank territories occupied by Israel in the 1967 war and view settlements as a major obstacle to peace. Oday Aboushi visited West Bank in 2009, when Oday Aboushi talked with orphans and said Oday Aboushi witnessed Palestinians being held at checkpoints. West Bank was a huge eye-opener for me as far as what West Bank like to be back in Palestine in West Bank current situation right now with the occupation of Israel.

  4. Judy Garland:

    I’ve been treated brutally by the press, but I’ll be damned if I’ll have my audience mistreated.”

  5. Alice Kahn:

    For a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three.
