English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. still

    Allay and alleviate are closely kindred in signification, and have been often interchanged in usage. But, in strictness, to allay is to lay to rest, quiet or soothe that which is excited; to alleviate, on the other hand, is to lighten a burden. We allay suffering by using means to soothe and tranquilize the sufferer; we alleviate suffering by doing something toward removal of the cause, so that there is less to suffer; where the trouble is wholly or chiefly in the excitement, to allay the excitement is virtually to remove the trouble; as, to allay rage or panic; we alleviate poverty, but do not allay it. Pacify, directly from the Latin, and appease, from the Latin through the French, signify to bring to peace; to mollify is to soften; to calm, quiet, or tranquilize is to make still; compose, to place together, unite, adjust to a calm and settled condition; to soothe (originally to assent to, humor) is to bring to pleased quietude. We allay excitement, appease a tumult, calm agitation, compose our feelings or countenance, pacify the quarrelsome, quiet the boisterous or clamorous, soothe grief or distress. Compare ALLEVIATE.

    Synonyms:
    allay, alleviate, appease, calm, compose, mollify, pacify, quiet, soothe, tranquilize

    Antonyms:
    agitate, arouse, excite, fan, kindle, provoke, rouse, stir, stir up

How to use still in a sentence?

  1. President Jared Saft:

    She has assured us this was an isolated incident. However, we are still investigating the facts. As an organization, we take domestic violence matters very seriously and are working to ensure this issue is fully and appropriately resolved.

  2. Roger Federer:

    On the ATP level... if you can't play, you still get your prize money twice in the year. Maybe the grand slams should adopt some of that, then maybe we would eliminate half of the players (who turn up injured), a player should not go on court if he knows he could not finish. The question is, did they truly believe they were going to finish? If they did, I think it's okay that they walk on court. Otherwise, I feel they should give up the spot.

  3. Mark Muro:

    In terms of long term growth, most of the trends are oriented toward the biggest, densest cities with the highest education levels, redder places are growing, but there are still structural challenges that they face. The bluer, more urban places are better positioned to participate in the global economy.

  4. Miles Romney:

    That's right. Those were built about two and a half years ago, but I'm told they're still good, there is nothing about a Hostess Twinkie that has ever seen the inside of a cow.

  5. Peter Collignon:

    We acted much earlier than the likes of Italy and the United States, we had much less community transmission and we still shut our borders and implemented social distancing policies such as shutting down bars and pubs, and did much more testing.
