English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. swearing

    In the highest sense, as in a court of justice, "an oath is a reverent appeal to God in corroboration of what one says," Abbott Law Dict.; an affidavit is a sworn statement made in writing in the presence of a competent officer; an adjuration is a solemn appeal to a person in the name of God to speak the truth. An oath is made to man in the name of God; a vow, to God without the intervention, often without the knowledge, of man. In the lower sense, an oath may be mere blasphemy or profane swearing. Anathema, curse, execration, and imprecation are modes of invoking vengeance or retribution from a superhuman power upon the person against whom they are uttered. Anathema is a solemn ecclesiastical condemnation of a person or of a proposition. Curse may be just and authoritative; as, the curse of God; or, it may be wanton and powerless: "so the curse causeless shall not come," Prov. xxvi, 2. Execration expresses most of personal bitterness and hatred; imprecation refers especially to the coming of the desired evil upon the person against whom it is uttered. Malediction is a general wish of evil, a less usual but very expressive word. Compare TESTIMONY.

    adjuration, affidavit, anathema, ban, blaspheming, blasphemy, curse, cursing, denunciation, execration, imprecation, malediction, oath, profane swearing, profanity, reprobation, sworn statement, vow

How to use swearing in a sentence?

  1. Socialist Party:

    The logical, sane and democratic step is for the National Assembly's leadership to revoke the swearing-in of these lawmakers.

  2. President George W. Bush:

    I ’m sure every nominee before you would have personal beliefs about that precedent and many others. But all nominees are united in their belief that what they think about a precedent should not bear on how they will decide cases. She was more pragmatic two years ago – just days before the presidential election – about the chances that Roe v. Wade would be overturned in coming years : I don't think the core case -- Roe's holding that women have a right to abortion -- I don't think that will change, but I think the question of whether people can get late-term abortions -- how many restrictions can be put on clinics -- I don't think that will change. Brett Kavanaugh, steady insider The federal appeals court here in Washington is seen as a professional stepping-stone to Supreme Court. Three current justices( John Roberts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas) served on that bench before joining the high court, as did Scalia. Now Brett Kavanaugh is poised to make the leap, though if history is any guide, Brett Kavanaugh could face an especially tough Senate confirmation. It is the image that may cement – or sink – the Supreme Court aspirations of Brett Kavanaugh. Brett Kavanaugh elevation to the federal appeals court was celebrated with a Rose Garden swearing-in by a fellow Catholic who's now retiring from the bench, Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Brett Kavanaugh served as a law clerk in 1993. Front and center : Brett Kavanaugh former boss, President George W. Bush, the man who nominated Brett Kavanaugh. I chose Brett Kavanaugh because of the force of Brett Kavanaugh mind, the breadth of Brett Kavanaugh experience and the strength of Brett Kavanaugh character.

  3. Vikrant Parsai:

  4. Gerald Ford:

    I do believe that the buck stops here, that I cannot rely upon public opinion polls to tell me what is right. I do believe that right makes might and that if I am wrong, 10 angels swearing I was right would make no difference. I do believe, with all my heart and mind and spirit, that I, not as President but as a humble servant of God, will receive justice without mercy if I fail to show mercy.

  5. Matthew Perry:

    There's a lot of swearing involved. British audiences seem to enjoy that. It appeals to sort of the 'Friends' generation, (in their) 30s and 40s, these people are at positions in their lives where generally most people have it all set out already; they're married and have kids. None of these characters are (in that position), so they feel a certain amount of pressure to have that in their lives.
