English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. rupture

    To break is to divide sharply, with severance of particles, as by a blow or strain. To burst is to break by pressure from within, as a bombshell, but it is used also for the result of violent force otherwise exerted; as, to burst in a door, where the door yields as if to an explosion. To crush is to break by pressure from without, as an egg-shell. To crack is to break without complete severance of parts; a cracked cup or mirror may still hold together. Fracture has a somewhat similar sense. In a fractured limb, the ends of the broken bone may be separated, tho both portions are still retained within the common muscular tissue. A shattered object is broken suddenly and in numerous directions; as, a vase is shattered by a blow, a building by an earthquake. A shivered glass is broken into numerous minute, needle-like fragments. To smash is to break thoroughly to pieces with a crashing sound by some sudden act of violence; a watch once smashed will scarcely be worth repair. To split is to cause wood to crack or part in the way of the grain, and is applied to any other case where a natural tendency to separation is enforced by an external cause; as, to split a convention or a party. To demolish is to beat down, as a mound, building, fortress, etc.; to destroy is to put by any process beyond restoration physically, mentally, or morally; to destroy an army is so to shatter and scatter it that it can not be rallied or reassembled as a fighting force. Compare REND.

How to use rupture in a sentence?

  1. Milton Waner:

    It’s relentless, at some stage, one or more of these vessels will rupture. Usually it’s associated with minor trauma or it can be spontaneous, and this will lead to a huge, massive hemorrhage and these hemorrhages can be fatal. In addition to this problem, Zoubir’s venous malformation was encroaching on his airway so at some point it would affect his ability to breathe.

  2. Charles Thorson:

    The Islamic State’s attack likely had multiple objectives, including disrupting Charles Thorson at the airport and embarrassing The Taliban as The Taliban tries to distance The Taliban from terrorist groups and portray The Taliban as being capable of providing security throughout the country, the Islamic State attack also probably serves longer-term objectives of driving recruitment and reinvigorating the Islamic State’s image within the global jihadist community amid the group’s downfall in Iraq and Syria, Thorson added. ISIS-K isestimated to have between 2,000 and 3,000 fighters operating in Afghanistan and its ranks swelled with more fighters after prisoners were released when the Afghan government collapsed. Charles Thorson MILITARY ESCAPE FROM AFGHANISTAN : AIR FORCE CREWS DESCRIBE ‘ APOCALYPTIC ’ FINAL SCENES A main gripe of ISIS-K with The Taliban is the deal the group negotiated with United States in Doha. ISIS-K considers the The Taliban traitors for entering into talks with the United States and announced The Taliban intentions to undermine the deal by launching a war against the The Taliban and the U.S.-backed Afghan government. While The Taliban simultaneously waged an insurgency campaign against Afghan forces and negotiated with the U.S., ISIS-K conducted deadly terror attacks on Afghan civilians, an attempt to discredit the The Taliban and drive-up recruitment. The attack from ISIS-K also highlights the internal fissures within The Taliban that will likely grow more profound as The Taliban enter the governing phase of their takeover. The Taliban have, at least rhetorically, struck a more moderate and pragmatic tone from their previous iteration in power 20 years ago. While leadership and spokespersons have remained mild in tone, the The Taliban rank and file are filled with more extremist factions that will be more attracted to the radicalism that ISIS-K espouses. According to Thorson, such a structure is vulnerable to infiltration by more extreme organizations like The Islamic State. Although the The Taliban and Islamic State are enemies, defections from one group to another suggest there may be pockets of sympathy within each group for the other. After all, this is how ISIS-Kformed in 2015, when disaffected remnants of the Pakistani The Taliban and other Jihadist groups split and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The rupture led to a declaration of war on both sides.

  3. Peter Rasmussen:

    Lesions develop from a variety of reasons, why they choose to rupture when they do is still a great mystery.

  4. Nikos Pappas:

    Unfortunately, a rupture has been confirmed but I think we will get the procedures for the deal concluded first and then we will look into all these things at the party.

  5. Michelle Bachelet:

    Imagine that? The president resigning. That's a constitutional rupture, the truth has to be told, so just in case - I never thought about resigning and I don't plan on resigning at any time.
