  1. prohibition

    A bar is something that is or may be firmly fixed, ordinarily with intent to prevent entrance or egress; as, the bars of a prison cell; the bars of a wood-lot. A barrier obstructs, but is not necessarily impassable. Barrier is used of objects more extensive than those to which bar is ordinarily applied. A mountain range may be a barrier to exploration; but a mass of sand across the entrance to a harbor is called a bar. Discovered falsehood is a bar to confidence. Barricade has become practically a technical name for an improvised street fortification, and, unless in some way modified, is usually so understood. A parapet is a low or breast-high wall, as about the edge of a roof, terrace, etc., especially, in military use, such a wall for the protection of troops; a rampart is the embankment surrounding a fort, on which the parapet is raised; the word rampart is often used as including the parapet. Bulwark is a general word for any defensive wall or rampart; its only technical use at present is in nautical language, where it signifies the raised side of a ship above the upper deck, topped by the rail. Compare BOUNDARY; IMPEDIMENT.

    Synonyms:
    bar, barricade, barrier, breastwork, bulwark, hindrance, obstacle, obstruction, parapet, rampart, restraint, restriction

    Antonyms:
    admittance, entrance, opening, passage, road, thoroughfare, transit, way

How to use prohibition in a sentence?

  1. Said Boumedouha:

    The world’s spotlight is shining on Saudi Arabia. If authorities ignore widespread criticism and unashamedly continue with the flogging of Raif Badawi, Saudi Arabia would be demonstrating contempt for international law and disregard for world opinion, flogging and other forms of corporal judicial punishment violate the prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment. By continuing to dole out this inhuman punishment the Saudi Arabian authorities are flagrantly flouting basic human rights principles.

  2. Mike Pompeo:

    We will refuse to provide assistance to foreign NGOs that give financial support to other foreign groups in the global abortion industry, we will enforce a strict prohibition on backdoor funding schemes and end-runs around our policy.

  3. Cristiane Mazzetti:

    In 2020, despite the prohibition of the use of fire and with the armed forces in the field since mid-May, the fires are still uncontrolled in Greenpeace Amazon, proving once again the inefficiency of the government, the figures show that the strategy adopted by the federal government is inefficient to contain the destruction of the most biodiverse forest on the planet.

  4. Lori Tremmel Freeman:

    It seems to be kind of a mixed bag of all the things going on here -- there's the limiting of requiring proof of vaccine, there's the limiting of requiring the vaccination itself, the prohibition of the mandates. So, there's a lot, they're not all uniform.

  5. Achilles Macris:

    Today the FCA has finally accepted that this allegation against me was utterly wrong, now that the FCA has accepted that I did not deliberately mislead it, I have decided not to prolong what has been a drawn out and burdensome process and have settled with the FCA, on the basis that there is no prohibition on my working in the regulated sector.
