English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. surety

    The first four words agree in denoting something given or deposited as an assurance of something to be given, paid, or done. An earnest is of the same kind as that to be given, a portion of it delivered in advance, as when part of the purchase-money is paid, according to the common expression, "to bind the bargain." A pledge or security may be wholly different in kind from that to be given or paid, and may greatly exceed it in value. Security may be of real or personal property — anything of sufficient value to make the creditor secure; a pledge is always of personal property or chattels. Every pawnshop contains unredeemed pledges; land, merchandise, bonds, etc., are frequently offered and accepted as security. A person may become security or surety for another's payment of a debt, appearance in court, etc.; in the latter case, he is said to become bail for that person; the person accused gives bail for himself. Gage survives only as a literary word, chiefly in certain phrases; as, "the gage of battle."

    Synonyms:
    bail, earnest, gage, pledge, security

    Preposition:
    Security for the payment of a debt; security to the state, for the prisoner, in the sum of a thousand dollars.

How to use surety in a sentence?

  1. Restore Justice:

    There's ample research that long sentences don't deter crime. It's actually the swiftness and the surety of consequences that deters crime, not the length of the sentence, the length of the sentence just costs the state and communities and families hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars and destroys lives. It doesn't make us safer. It's a myth.

  2. Donald Trump:

    Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media, no politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.

  3. Sir Walter Raleigh:

    Above all things, be not made an ass to carry the burdens of other men if any friend desire thee to be his surety, give him a part of what thou has to spare if he presses thee further, he is not thy friend at all.

  4. Donald Trump:

    No politician in history -- and I say this with great surety -- has been treated worse or more unfairly, don't give in.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    A vote holds not only a significant power; it also carries a key to a system, essence to the welfare, surety to the career of a future generation, and magnet to the stability of the state. The wrong choice or emotionally pledge and favour of the vote-casting can indeed victimize a voter itself as a consequence. Realize this power and use it wisely, disregarding all external influences and tricks.
