English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. weigh

    An individual considers, meditates, ponders, reflects, by himself; he weighs a matter in his own mind, and is sometimes said even to debate with himself. Consult and confer always imply two or more persons, as does debate, unless expressly limited as above. Confer suggests the interchange of counsel, advice, or information; consult indicates almost exclusively the receiving of it. A man confers with his associates about a new investment; he consults his physician about his health; he may confer with him on matters of general interest. He consults a dictionary, but does not confer with it. Deliberate, which can be applied to a single individual, is also the word for a great number, while consult is ordinarily limited to a few; a committee consults; an assembly deliberates. Deliberating always carries the idea of slowness; consulting is compatible with haste; we can speak of a hasty consultation, not of a hasty deliberation. Debate implies opposing views; deliberate, simply a gathering and balancing of all facts and reasons. We consider or deliberate with a view to action, while meditation may be quite purposeless.

    Synonyms:
    confer, consider, consult, debate, deliberate, meditate, ponder, reflect

    Preposition:
    We deliberate on or upon, also about or concerning a matter: the first two are preferable.

How to use weigh in a sentence?

  1. Barbara Boxer:

    To force Congress to weigh in now on the Iran nuclear talks before a final deal has been completed would be a reckless rush to judgment, it would undermine negotiations at a critical moment and could derail a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to deal with this looming threat.

  2. Neil Levesque:

    People like and resonate with a candidate (like Sanders), but in the end they weigh whether the candidate can go all the way, she can see the long game because he has been through it before.

  3. Roy Blunt:

    Not would the witness tell us something we might not know because we just like to know ? but would the witness change the result -- and is it worth continuing to reward the bad performance of The White House to stretch this out and for not a change in the outcome?Under the Senate resolution governing the impeachment trial, the Senate will have four hours of debate on a motion about whether subpoenas for witnesses and documents are in order -- once the The White House impeachment managers and Trump's defense team make their opening arguments and after senators ask up to 16 hours of questions. After that four-hour debate, the Senate will vote on whether it should consider any motion to subpoena witnesses or documents. If there are 51 votes for that measure, a subpoena would be issued only if the Senate were to approve another motion naming the individual or documents that is backed by a majority of senators. Any witnesses would first be deposed privately before the Senate would vote on whether to make their testimony public.In addition to Lisa Murkowski, the focus has been on Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine, both of whom have signaled a willingness to hear from witnesses. Sen. Lamar Alexander, a retiring Tennessee Republican who is an institutionalist and a close McConnell ally, has not ruled out subpoenas either. But a GOP source close to the group of swing senators argues that the possibility of a drawn-out court fight will weigh heavily, including on Alexander.On Thursday, Lamar Alexander indicated Lamar Alexander had not yet made up Lamar Alexander mind about supporting subpoenas for witnesses and documents.

  4. Amitava Banerjee:

    The increased risk of heart attack with NSAIDs, regardless of which one, means that both health professionals and the public should weigh up the harm and the benefit when prescribing these medications, especially for more than a day or two, despite the over-the-counter availability of the traditional NSAIDs, this caution is still required. The mechanism of this increased risk of heart attack is not at all clear from existing studies.

  5. Jay Jacobs:

    They have the scale on TV. When the contestants step on the scale they don't even know their real weight and how much they dropped. You're weighed two days prior to a real weigh-in that's taped on TV. every single time that we were weighed in, there were witnesses and it was recorded.
