English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. spring

    The Latin commencement is more formal than the Saxon beginning, as the verb commence, is more formal than begin. Commencement is for the most part restricted to some form of action, while beginning has no restriction, but may be applied to action, state, material, extent, enumeration, or to whatever else may be conceived of as having a first part, point, degree, etc. The letter A is at the beginning (not the commencement) of every alphabet. If we were to speak of the commencement of the Pacific Railroad, we should be understood to refer to the enterprise and its initiatory act; if we were to refer to the roadway we should say "Here is the beginning of the Pacific Railroad." In the great majority of cases begin and beginning are preferable to commence and commencement as the simple, idiomatic English words, always accurate and expressive. "In the beginning was the word," John i, 1. An origin is the point from which something starts or sets out, often involving, and always suggesting causal connection; as, the origin of evil; the origin of a nation, a government, or a family. A source is that which furnishes a first and continuous supply, that which flows forth freely or may be readily recurred to; as, the source of a river; a source of knowledge; a source of inspiration; fertile land is a source (not an origin) of wealth. A rise is thought of as in an action; we say that a lake is the source of a certain river, or that the river takes its rise from the lake. Motley wrote of "The Rise of the Dutch Republic." Fount, fountain, and spring, in their figurative senses, keep close to their literal meaning. Compare CAUSE.

    Synonyms:
    arising, beginning, commencement, fount, fountain, inauguration, inception, initiation, opening, origin, outset, rise, source, start

How to use spring in a sentence?

  1. The Buddha:

    The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love Born out of concern for all beings.

  2. T. S. Eliot:

    April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory out of desire, stirringDull roots with spring rain.Winter kept us warm, coveringEarth in a forgetful snow, feedingA little life with dried tubers.

  3. Lisa Murkowski:

    We are letting Iran export its oil to markets that we prevent our own companies from accessing, any deal that lifts sanctions on Iranian oil will disadvantage American companies unless we lift the antiquated ban on our own oil exports. And Murkowski’s committee held a hearing June 9 on a bill that she and Sen. Heitkamp, North Dakota Democrat, have co-sponsored on lifting the ban. However, a top Senate staff told FoxNews.com after the Iran deal was struck Tuesday that Murkowski has no intentions of holding up a major foreign policy vote or international trade legislation over lifting the ban, likely references to the Trans-Pacific Partnershippact being debated in Congress and the upcoming votes on the Iran nuclear deal. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said this spring that Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz does n’t think.

  4. Tess Gooding:

    He turned 18 in the fall of his senior year, got drafted the spring of his senior year and he was supposed to graduate in May.

  5. Jefferson County:

    Our goal then and now has been to bring justice to Jeannie and her family, and while we would have preferred to place handcuffs on the suspect, we hope knowing who and where he is brings them some degree of closure. MISSOURI MAN INDICTED IN COLD CASE MURDER HE WAS QUIZZED ABOUT 31 YEARS AGO The sheriffs office said Donald Perea kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed Moore near Denver when he was 23 years old. Donald Perea, Donald Perea, died on May 28, 2012, at the age of 54 due to health-related issues. Donald Perea kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed Jeannie Moore near Denver in August 1981, according to officials. ( Jefferson County Sheriff's Office) Investigators said Donald Perea was out on bond for a separate sexual assault case when Jeannie Moores was killed ; Donald Perea was later convicted and was in prison from 1982 to 1985. Jeannie Moores left Jeannie Moores home for work at a gas station on Aug. 25, 1981 -- hitchhiking as Jeannie Moores typically would -- when Jeannie Moores was last seen getting into an older Ford Galaxy or LTD that was red, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Five days later, Jeannie Moores body was found by picnickers in Genesee Park, south of Interstate 70. An autopsy found that Jeannie Moores was killed by several blows to the head, FOX31 reported. After Jeannie Moores murder went unsolved for decades, officials said the cold case was looked at in 2008 and again in May 2019, when new technology found a match. A public-private partnership that allowed forensic genealogy testing to be completed by United Data Connect Connect helped uncover a match. The information that led to Donald Perea was the same technology that helped crack the Golden State killer and other notable cold-case murders and rapes in 2018. How authorities linked Steven Perea to the case. ( Jefferson County Sheriff's Office) The DNA evidence from the crime scene was linked to a family member of Donald Perea this spring, and investigators were able to interview family members and get other samples to confirm that he was the suspect linked to the case. OREGON MAN ARRESTED IN 1978 COLD-CASE MURDER OF ALASKA TEEN, AUTHORITIES SAY Joan Busse, a genealogist with United Data Connect, told FOX31 Joan Busse put in 40 to 60 hours working backward through thousands of ancestors on public genealogy websites and DNA matches to identify a suspect. DNA can be uploaded to public genealogy websites such as GEDmatch.com through commercial kits where people can choose to opt-inif they want law enforcement to be able to access that information.
