English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. prevail on

    Of these words convince alone has no direct reference to moving the will, denoting an effect upon the understanding only; one may be convinced of his duty without doing it, or he may be convinced of truth that has no manifest connection with duty or action, as of a mathematical proposition. To persuade is to bring the will of another to a desired decision by some influence exerted upon it short of compulsion; one may be convinced that the earth is round; he may be persuaded to travel round it; but persuasion is so largely dependent upon conviction that it is commonly held to be the orator's work first to convince in order that he may persuade. Coax is a slighter word than persuade, seeking the same end by shallower methods, largely by appeal to personal feeling, with or without success; as, a child coaxes a parent to buy him a toy. One may be brought over, induced, or prevailed upon by means not properly included in persuasion, as by bribery or intimidation; he is won over chiefly by personal influence. Compare INFLUENCE.

    Synonyms:
    allure, bring over, coax, convince, dispose, entice, impel, incite, incline, induce, influence, lead, move, persuade, prevail upon, urge, win over

    Antonyms:
    deter, discourage, dissuade, hinder, hold back, repel, restrain

How to use prevail on in a sentence?

  1. Florida State University:

    It is always difficult to prevail on a motion to dismiss filed at the earliest stages of a case.

  2. James Earl Jimmy Carter, Jr.:

    It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.

  3. Jeff Sessions:

    We've got cases moving in the very, very liberal Ninth Circuit, who, they've been hostile to the order, we won a case in Virginia recently that was a nicely-written order that just demolished, I thought, all the arguments that some of the other people have been making. We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter. I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.

  4. Mateusz Morawiecki:

    President has done the proposal because he promised it but he won't push it, i hope some common sense solution will prevail on Swiss francs.

  5. Mateusz Morawiecki:
