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.

How to use select in a sentence?

  1. R. Buckminster Fuller:

    Children are born true scientists. They spontaneously experiment and experience and reexperience again. They select, combine, and test, seeking to find order in their experiences - "which is the mostest? which is the leastest?" They smell, taste, bite, and touch-test for hardness, softness, springiness, roughness, smoothness, coldness, warmness: the heft, shake, punch, squeeze, push, crush, rub, and try to pull things apart.

  2. New York Rep. Steve Israel:

    Where there is a Hillary Clinton, there are Republicans trying to manufacture or amplify crisis or scandal. That's what they do here, pretty soon we'll have a special investigative committee for every action that Hillary Clinton takes. There will be a special select committee on Hillary Clinton breakfast, Hillary Clinton lunch and Hillary Clinton dinner and what Hillary Clinton had in between. Just add this to the list.

  3. Jen Psaki:

    In response to our request, Hillary Clinton provided State Department with emails spanning Hillary Clinton time at State Department, after State Department reviewed those emails, we produced about 300 emails responsive to recent requests from the Select Committee. The New York Times also reported that Clinton's personal email account was discovered by Gowdy's House committee when State -- through Hillary Clinton -- provided those emails to the committee. However, Gawker reported in 2013, based on emails obtained by a Romanian hacker named.

  4. Lindsey Graham:

    Given the recent controversies surrounding the director, I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well, i encourage the President to select the most qualified professional available who will serve our nation's interests.

  5. Emerson:

    Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it. The man who knows how will always have a job. The man who also knows why will always be his boss. As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.
