English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. train

    To teach is simply to communicate knowledge; to instruct (originally, to build in or into, put in order) is to impart knowledge with special method and completeness; instruct has also an authoritative sense nearly equivalent to command. To educate is to draw out or develop harmoniously the mental powers, and, in the fullest sense, the moral powers as well. To train is to direct to a certain result powers already existing. Train is used in preference to educate when the reference is to the inferior animals or to the physical powers of man; as, to train a horse; to train the hand or eye. To discipline is to bring into habitual and complete subjection to authority; discipline is a severe word, and is often used as a euphemism for punish; to be thoroughly effective in war, soldiers must be disciplined as well as trained. To nurture is to furnish the care and sustenance necessary for physical, mental, and moral growth; nurture is a more tender and homelike word than educate. Compare EDUCATION.

    Synonyms:
    discipline, drill, educate, enlighten, give instruction, give lessons, inculcate, indoctrinate, inform, initiate, instill, instruct, nurture, school, teach, tutor

How to use train in a sentence?

  1. Clerk Michael McSweeney:

    As we train our clerks, we will have more people available and will be able to increase the number of appointments.

  2. Lisel Heise:

    To reach the age of 100, I tell everybody: live healthily when you're young, do lots of sport, eat well and train your mind.

  3. Brian Deschanel:

    People have become extremely superficial, and feel the need to use and worship a worthless, and fictitious paper out of thin air, which is backed by absolutely nothing, called money (that everyone's been conned into) to be socially respected. People are so lost and franticly divided in their miniscule gender war, chauvinistic and narcissistic fashionista, sports, porn, drug and alcohol consuming, sue happy, sadistic, profiteering sociopathic and psychopathic false ideological (religious and political) activities, that they look but don't see their future right in their face, and yet careless to wake up, acknowledge, and react. I guess Murphy is right, when he says The light at the end of the tunnel, is the train heading for us! This ill fated world population has become a giant worn-out, and sabotaged machine that continues to operate for worse, heading to self-destruction. Thanks to our caring corporate bought and paid- for governments for providing us the indoctrinations and mind controlling schools, press, entertainment, social media, health, politics ( left vs right paradigm, and etc.), religions, police, and justice systems, and not to mention, all ideological (religious and political) high priests, who believe and follow the God named Benjamin, are nothing more than unlawfully paid and legalised criminals in uniform, who are employed to exploit and violate everyone's fundamental rights, sovereignty, well being, and withholding the truth, to prevent mankind’s awakening, and constantly injecting fear into all, while the corporate jezebels rapists, and paedophiliacs that we refer to as politicians, use Hegelian dialectic, spread propagandas, and manufacture false flags to raid and plunder innocents at home and around the world, in the name of security, peace, freedom, health, law, science, and technology. On top of all, these power hungry and greedy psychopaths deploy AI, 5G towers, smart meters, robots, contaminated water supplies, genetically modified junks, chemtrails, poisonous and cancerous treatments, lab generated diseases, euthanasia, mind controlling devices (TVs, phones, tablets, desktops and laptops), pictures and audios with subliminal messages, to infiltrate every individual's body and mind to it's core, redirecting our impulses, and artificially inducing our state of consciousness as mentioned in They Live, in pursuit of destruction of mankind's collectiveness, and driving all livings into extinction, where, the unofficial Doomsday clock is only 15 seconds to midnight! For as long as people are kept asleep, and continue supplying their sweat, voice, time, and efforts to these self entitled, parasitic, and merciless predators known as the ruling class, nothing will change, and the agenda will continue forward, full steam. This is a world-wide madness, and it requires large supplies in high doses of red pill to prevent the annihilation of our beautiful nature and the mother Earth.

  4. Modoc National Forest:

    This allows trainers who are willing to train large quantities of horses a business opportunity. Several trainers have already stepped up committing to some of these horses, horses can also be sold to sanctuaries, become ranch stock horses, packing horses, or to buyers that may send them to slaughter.

  5. President Barack Obama:

    You are part of the first generation of officers to begin your service in a world where the effects of climate change are so clearly upon us. Climate change will shape how every one of our services plan, operate, train, equip, and protect their infrastructure, today and for the long-term.
