English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. rate

    Number is the generic term. To count is to number one by one. To calculate is to use more complicated processes, as multiplication, division, etc., more rapid but not less exact. Compute allows more of the element of probability, which is still more strongly expressed by estimate. We compute the slain in a great war from the number known to have fallen in certain great battles; compute refers to the present or the past, estimate more frequently to the future; as, to estimate the cost of a proposed building. To enumerate is to mention item by item; as, to enumerate one's grievances. To rate is to estimate by comparison, as if the object were one of a series. We count upon a desired future; we do not count upon the undesired. As applied to the present, we reckon or count a thing precious or worthless. Compare ESTEEM.

    account, calculate, cast, compute, consider, count, deem, enumerate, estimate, number, reckon, sum up

    It is vain to calculate on or upon an uncertain result.

  4. Kelly Bogdanov:

    Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen really struck a tone between dovish and hawkish, and I think delivered, for the most part, what the market needed. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was dovish enough to signal that a March rate hike is probably off the table but hawkish enough to leave the impression Federal Reserve is confident the economic recovery will persist, that's very important for stocks because as long as we can avoid a recession, this correction will probably work itself out and we'll have the opportunity to bounce back.

    For the first time in my life – even in the late ‘80s and ’90s when the crime rate was killing 2,000 people a year – I never felt as unsafe as I do now just walking around and God forbid, sometimes we take the subway home from WABC, and you’re hearing about an assault on the subway almost every other day.
