English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. request

    One asks what he feels that he may fairly claim and reasonably expect; "if a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father," Luke xi, 11; he begs for that to which he advances no claim but pity. Demand is a determined and often an arrogant word; one may rightfully demand what is his own or his due, when it is withheld or denied; or he may wrongfully demand that to which he has no claim but power. Require is less arrogant and obtrusive than demand, but is exceedingly strenuous; as, the court requires the attendance of witnesses. Entreat implies a special earnestness of asking, and beseech, a still added and more humble intensity; beseech was formerly often used as a polite intensive for beg or pray; as, I beseech you to tell me. To implore is to ask with weeping and lamentation; to supplicate is to ask, as it were, on bended knees. Crave and request are somewhat formal terms; crave has almost disappeared from conversation; request would seem distant between parent and child. Pray is now used chiefly of address to the Supreme Being; petition is used of written request to persons in authority; as, to petition the legislature to pass an act, or the governor to pardon an offender.

    Synonyms:
    ask, beg, beseech, crave, demand, entreat, implore, petition, pray, require, solicit, supplicate

    Antonyms:
    claim, command, deny, enforce, exact, extort, insist, refuse, reject

    Preposition:
    Ask a person for a thing; ask a thing of or from a person; ask after or about one's health, welfare, friends, etc.

How to use request in a sentence?

  1. Alain Pentón:

    The culture I come from, the military culture, when a senior asks you to do something, even if it's polite and pleasant, it's not to be taken as a request, it's to be taken as an order, in this case, the power disparity between the two leaders, my impression is that in order to get the White House meeting, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky would have to deliver these investigations.
