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

Dream more than even your wildest dreams. Expand your skills beyond your normal limitations. Magnify your Life with More and More - because "The More the Merrier" is not a Cliché, but a Solution to Self-improvement, and a Mantra to Meliorism in real world IMHO.

    We end up needing to teach kids how they can deal with cravings, how they can identify high-risk situations, how they can actually deal with being surrounded by people who are using these things, because the reality is that, for most kids, we treat them and put them back in school, and then they go to the bathroom, and everybody's Juuling.

  5. Giovanni Drago:
