English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. treat

    There are many acts that one may do, accomplish, or perform unaided; what he transacts is by means of or in association with others; one may do a duty, perform a vow, accomplish a task, but he transacts business, since that always involves the agency of others. To negotiate and to treat are likewise collective acts, but both these words lay stress upon deliberation with adjustment of mutual claims and interests; transact, while it may depend upon previous deliberation, states execution only. Notes, bills of exchange, loans, and treaties are said to be negotiated, the word so used covering not merely the preliminary consideration, but the final settlement. Negotiate has more reference to execution than treat; nations may treat of peace without result, but when a treaty is negotiated, peace is secured; the citizens of the two nations are then free to transact business with one another. Compare DO.

    Synonyms:
    accomplish, act, carry on, conduct, do, negotiate, perform, transact

How to use treat in a sentence?

  1. Pam Evans:

    More than looks and physical style, it will be their values and how they treat one another that will determine if Cameron and Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden will be the right fit in the long run.

  2. William Barr:

    In any age, the so-called progressives treat politics as their religion. Their holy mission is to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection. Whatever means they use are therefore justified because, by definition, they are a virtuous people pursing a deific end. They are willing to use any means necessary to gain momentary advantage in achieving their end, regardless of collateral consequences and the systemic implications. They never ask whether the actions they take could be justified as a general rule of conduct, equally applicable to all sides.

  3. Rebecca Baum:

    Any time we use a medication we are certainly thinking about what is the benefit of the medication versus the risk, the vast majority of my patients have ADHD and I have the benefit of being able to treat many patients quite successfully.

  4. Sonya Friedman:

    The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.

  5. Matthew McLaughlin:

    The courts, rightly or wrongly, treat the initiative as sort of the citizen right, and they are reluctant to get involved in trying to get rid of it, at least in advance, by using the law to keep something from being presented to the electorate.
