English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. expire

    Die, to go out of life, become destitute of vital power and action, is figuratively applied to anything which has the appearance of life.

    Where the dying night-lamp flickers.

    Tennyson Locksley Hall st. 40.

    An echo, a strain of music, a tempest, a topic, an issue, dies. Expire (literally, to breathe out) is a softer word for die; it is used figuratively of things that cease to exist by reaching a natural limit; as, a lease expires; the time has expired. To perish (literally, in Latin, to go through, as in English we say, "the fire goes out") is oftenest used of death by privation or exposure; as, "I perish with hunger," Luke xv, 17; sometimes, of death by violence. Knowledge and fame, art and empires, may be said to perish; the word denotes utter destruction and decay.

    Synonyms:
    cease, decease, decline, depart, die, fade, perish, wither

    Antonyms:
    be born, be immortal, begin, come into being, come to life, exist, flourish, grow, live, rise again, rise from the dead, survive

    Preposition:
    To die of fever; by violence; rarely, with the sword, famine, etc. (Ezek. vii, 15); to die for one's country; to die at sea; in one's bed; in agony; die to the world.
