English Synonyms and Antonyms0.0 / 0 votes

  1. security

    The first four words agree in denoting something given or deposited as an assurance of something to be given, paid, or done. An earnest is of the same kind as that to be given, a portion of it delivered in advance, as when part of the purchase-money is paid, according to the common expression, "to bind the bargain." A pledge or security may be wholly different in kind from that to be given or paid, and may greatly exceed it in value. Security may be of real or personal property — anything of sufficient value to make the creditor secure; a pledge is always of personal property or chattels. Every pawnshop contains unredeemed pledges; land, merchandise, bonds, etc., are frequently offered and accepted as security. A person may become security or surety for another's payment of a debt, appearance in court, etc.; in the latter case, he is said to become bail for that person; the person accused gives bail for himself. Gage survives only as a literary word, chiefly in certain phrases; as, "the gage of battle."

    Synonyms:
    bail, earnest, gage, pledge, surety

    Preposition:
    Security for the payment of a debt; security to the state, for the prisoner, in the sum of a thousand dollars.

How to use security in a sentence?

  1. Douglas Mark Hughes:

    We’ve got bigger problems in this country than fussing about whether or not the security around D.C. is ironclad, we need to be worried about the piles of money that are going into Congress.

  2. Richard Windsor:

    It is fairly easy to argue that Google Mobile Services is unique and only available from the U.S. and potentially could be considered a security threat depending on what data is going over those services.

  3. Gordon Sondland:

    Let me state clearly : Inviting a foreign government to undertake investigations for the purpose of influencing an upcoming U.S. election would be wrong, withholding foreign aid in order to pressure a foreign government to take such steps would be wrong. I did not and would not ever participate in such undertakings. In my opinion, security aid to Ukraine was in our vital national interest and should not have been delayed for any reason.

  4. Samier Dandan:

    Almost universally, research points to the enormous influence that wider social, economic and political issues have on the process of radicalization, yet, the focus of the government's strategy seems to rest heavily on how best it can strip people of their rights in the name of 'security'.

  5. Carolyn McCall:

    The reason the British government advised all airlines to stop flying to Sharm is that they believed there was a device in the hold of the Metrojet aircraft, they had inside intelligence giving them that information, so that's not surprising to anybody in the airline industry, given that the British government took very strong action immediately. Clearly, that is why security has got to be enhanced at Sharm el-Sheikh.
