English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. beg

    One asks what he feels that he may fairly claim and reasonably expect; "if a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father," Luke xi, 11; he begs for that to which he advances no claim but pity. Demand is a determined and often an arrogant word; one may rightfully demand what is his own or his due, when it is withheld or denied; or he may wrongfully demand that to which he has no claim but power. Require is less arrogant and obtrusive than demand, but is exceedingly strenuous; as, the court requires the attendance of witnesses. Entreat implies a special earnestness of asking, and beseech, a still added and more humble intensity; beseech was formerly often used as a polite intensive for beg or pray; as, I beseech you to tell me. To implore is to ask with weeping and lamentation; to supplicate is to ask, as it were, on bended knees. Crave and request are somewhat formal terms; crave has almost disappeared from conversation; request would seem distant between parent and child. Pray is now used chiefly of address to the Supreme Being; petition is used of written request to persons in authority; as, to petition the legislature to pass an act, or the governor to pardon an offender.

    Synonyms:
    ask, beseech, crave, demand, entreat, implore, petition, pray, request, require, solicit, supplicate

    Antonyms:
    claim, command, deny, enforce, exact, extort, insist, refuse, reject

    Preposition:
    Ask a person for a thing; ask a thing of or from a person; ask after or about one's health, welfare, friends, etc.
