  1. this instant

    The strong and general human tendency to procrastination is shown in the progressive weakening of the various words in this group. Immediately primarily signifies without the intervention of anything as a medium, hence without the intervention of any, even the briefest, interval or lapse of time. By and by, which was once a synonym, has become an antonym of immediately, meaning at some (perhaps remote) future time. Directly, which once meant with no intervening time, now means after some little while; presently no longer means in this very present, but before very long. Even immediately is sliding from its instantaneousness, so that we are fain to substitute at once, instantly, etc., when we would make promptness emphatic. Right away and right off are vigorous conversational expressions in the United States.

    Synonyms:
    at once, directly, forthwith, immediately, instanter, instantly, now, presently, right away, right off, straightway, without delay

    Antonyms:
    after a while, by and by, hereafter, in the future, some time

How to use this instant in a sentence?

  1. Rima Kleiner:

    If you only eat a lobster bisque at restaurants, I encourage you to try this recipe. It's very simple, straightforward and puts your Instant Pot to good use, plus, I used less half-and-half than most recipes call for, swapped the olive oil for butter and relied on a lot of herbs and seasonings to add rich flavor. And it's so flavorful, you'll be the only one who knows this bisque is lightened up and nutrient-rich.

  2. Mark Eiglarsh:

    It almost always gets you first-degree murder because premeditation can be formed in an instant, you put your hands around the neck, that’s an unwanted touching, that’s simple battery or assault.

But then you contuse to affix pressure… There’s a certain amount of minimal time that someone needs to do that before somebody is dead.

    Rochelle Walensky has repeatedly said she consulted with parents on school reopening guidance, but newly obtained records show that's anything but the truth, instead of giving parents a meaningful seat at the table, she once again prioritized teacher union bosses – giving them instant and unfettered access while parents were relegated to a singular 30-minute meeting.
