English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. select

    Allot, originally to assign by lot, applies to the giving of a definite thing to a certain person. A portion or extent of time is allotted; as, I expect to live out my allotted time. A definite period is appointed; as, the audience assembled at the appointed hour. Allot may also refer to space; as, to allot a plot of ground for a cemetery; but we now oftener use select, set apart, or assign. Allot is not now used of persons. Appoint may be used of time, space, or person; as, the appointed day; the appointed place; an officer was appointed to this station. Destine may also refer to time, place, or person, but it always has reference to what is considerably in the future; a man appoints to meet his friend in five minutes; he destines his son to follow his own profession. Assign is rarely used of time, but rather of places, persons, or things. We assign a work to be done and assign a man to do it, who, if he fails, must assign a reason for not doing it. That which is allotted, appointed, or assigned is more or less arbitrary; that which is awarded is the due requital of something the receiver has done, and he has right and claim to it; as, the medal was awarded for valor. Compare APPORTION.

    Synonyms:
    allot, appoint, apportion, assign, award, destine, distribute, divide, give, grant, mete out, portion out, set apart

    Antonyms:
    appropriate, confiscate, deny, refuse, resume, retain, seize, withhold

    Preposition:
    Allot to a company for a purpose.

    Job interview is basically a process in which if an interviewee gives all answers honestly to the interviewers, then it is highly likely that they will reject him but not before grilling him with all sort of absurd questions; but when he pleases them with the reasons that they deem it right even if not correct, surprisingly they often select him instantly.
