English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. think(v)

    Esteem and estimate alike imply to set a certain mental value upon, but esteem is less precise and mercantile than calculate or estimate. We esteem a jewel precious; we estimate it to be worth so much money. This sense of esteem is now chiefly found in literary or oratorical style, and in certain conventional phrases; as, I esteem it an honor, a favor. In popular usage esteem, as said of persons, denotes a union of respect and kindly feeling and, in the highest sense, of moral approbation; as, one whom I highly esteem; the word may be used in a similar sense of material things or abstractions; as, one whose friendship I esteem; a shell greatly esteemed for inlaid work. To appreciate anything is to be deeply or keenly sensible of or sensitive to its qualities or influence, to see its full import, be alive to its value, importance, or worth; as, to appreciate beauty or harmony; to appreciate one's services in a cause; the word is similarly, tho rarely, used of persons. To prize is to set a high value on for something more than merely commercial reasons. One may value some object, as a picture, beyond all price, as a family heirloom, or may prize it as the gift of an esteemed friend, without at all appreciating its artistic merit or commercial value. To regard (French regarder, look at, observe) is to have a certain mental view favorable or unfavorable; as, I regard him as a friend; or, I regard him as a villain; regard has a distinctively favorable sense as applied to institutions, proprieties, duties, etc., but does not share the use of the noun regard as applied to persons; we regard the Sabbath; we regard a person's feelings; we have a regard for the person. Compare ESTEEM, n.

    Synonyms:
    appreciate, calculate, consider, deem, esteem, esteem, estimate, hold, prize, regard, value

  1. State Superintendent Denise Juneau:

    I just don't think Measured Progress was ready for that influx.

  2. Roger Federer:

    I think I can trust my second serve in particular; when you trust your second serve, you can go after your first serve, i started to feel that midway through the first set it was going to be difficult for Denis to get into my service games. That relaxes you from the baseline. Then good things really happen.

  3. Johan Ronnby:

    It's a monster. It's a sea monster and we have to discuss what kind of animal it is. I think it's some kind of fantasy animal - a dragon with lion ears and crocodile-like mouth, i'm amazed, We knew that it should be a fantastic figure, but it was over our expectations when we saw it now. It's a fantastic figure, unique in the world.

  4. Deborah Bradley:

    We just don't want her to think that we stopped thinking about her and that we don't care.

  5. James Clapper:

    Even Secretary Mattis, as dedicated as Secretary Mattis is to this country and particularly to the men and women of the armed forces that Secretary Mattis leads, even Secretary Mattis would at some point I think would have a tipping point if Secretary Mattis's completely cut out of things.
