English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. sentence

    To condemn is to pass judicial sentence or render judgment or decision against. We may censure silently; we condemn ordinarily by open and formal utterance. Condemn is more final than blame or censure; a condemned criminal has had his trial; a condemned building can not stand; a condemned ship can not sail. A person is convicted when his guilt is made clearly manifest to others; in somewhat archaic use, a person is said to be convicted when guilt is brought clearly home to his own conscience (convict in this sense being allied with convince, which see under PERSUADE); in legal usage one is said to be convicted only by the verdict of a jury. In stating the penalty of an offense, the legal word sentence is now more common than condemn; as, he was sentenced to imprisonment; but it is good usage to say, he was condemned to imprisonment. To denounce is to make public or official declaration against, especially in a violent and threatening manner.

    From the pulpits in the northern States Burr was denounced as an assassin.

    Coffin Building the Nation ch. 10, p. 137. [Harper & Bros. '83.]

    To doom is to condemn solemnly and consign to evil or destruction or to predetermine to an evil destiny; an inferior race in presence of a superior is doomed to subjugation or extinction. Compare ARRAIGN; REPROVE.

    Synonyms:
    blame, censure, condemn, convict, denounce, doom, reprobate, reprove

    Antonyms:
    absolve, acquit, applaud, approve, exonerate, justify, pardon, pardon, praise

    Preposition:

How to use sentence in a sentence?

  1. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee:

    The fact that Hillary Clinton sent 'Top Secret' information from her personal email address is beyond outrageously illegal, it's life-threatening to members of our military and every American citizen. The same action, for anyone serving in the military, would mean a court-martial and prison sentence.

  2. Trevor Noah:

    We all know what’s going on here: President Trump is wearing dentures, people. Yeah, that’s what’s going on, no, this used to happen to my grandfather all the time: His dentures would start falling out, and then he wouldn’t be able to finish his sentence.

  3. George Brandis:

    I make no apology for the government taking the view that if a person, having served a sentence of imprisonment for a serious crime, shows every indication of a willingness to repeat that crime, to reoffend as soon as they are released, they should remain behind bars.

  4. Donald Trump:

    In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word' would' instead of' wouldn't,'.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Face makeup and sober dress exhibit beauty and attraction; similarly, words' makeup, how its usage takes place, and how one employs that, in a sentence; it shows an impact and authentication.
