English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. testify

    Acknowledge, admit, and declare refer either to oneself or to others; all the other words refer only to one's own knowledge or action. To avow is to declare boldly and openly, commonly as something one is ready to justify, maintain, or defend. A man acknowledges another's claim or his own promise; he admits an opponent's advantage or his own error; he declares either what he has seen or experienced or what he has received from another; he avers what he is sure of from his own knowledge or consciousness; he gives his assurance as the voucher for what he avouches; he avows openly a belief or intention that he has silently held. Avow and avouch take a direct object; aver is followed by a conjunction: a man avows his faith, avouches a deed, avers that he was present. Avow has usually a good sense; what a person avows he at least does not treat as blameworthy, criminal, or shameful; if he did, he would be said to confess it; yet there is always the suggestion that some will be ready to challenge or censure what one avows; as, the clergyman avowed his dissent from the doctrine of his church. Own applies to all things, good or bad, great or small, which one takes as his own. Compare CONFESS; STATE.

    Synonyms:
    admit, aver, avouch, avow, confess, declare, knowledge, own, proclaim, profess, protest, witness

    Antonyms:
    contradict, deny, disavow, disclaim, disown, ignore, repudiate

How to use testify in a sentence?

  4. Brett Kavanaugh:

    , } Accusers do not tend to fare well in word-on-word clashes. As I have described, skepticism of sexual violence complaints has shape-shifted over time. Yet it remains firmly lodged. The staying power of credibility discounting is a notable feature — perhaps even the dominant feature — of our response to rape.This may be changing. The #MeToo movement is challenging a societal default to doubt, and the past year has brought undeniable progress. Yet even as sexual misconduct complaints are met with newfound receptivity, it is worth noting that lone accusers continue to bear a special burden. ( It seems unlikely that Senate Republicans will ask the FBI to investigate two other accusers' reports against Brett Kavanaugh, or even that they will be asked to testify before Senate Judiciary Committee.) Many survivors of sexual violence are deterred by the likelihood of a swearing contest. But Ford — in the face of death threats — has agreed to appear before Senate Judiciary Committee. Senate Republicans walks into a.

  5. William Burck:

    People should not forget that Don McGahn is a lawyer and has an ethical obligation to protect client confidences, and as I have said before, Don McGahn does not believe Don McGahn witnessed any violation of law, and the President instructed Don McGahn to cooperate fully with Legal Counsel but directed him not to testify to Congress unless the White House and The Judiciary Committee reached an accommodation.
