synonym for adapt

accommodate

verb [ uh-kom-uh-deyt ]

accommodate is another word for adapt

Adapt and accommodate both mean to adjust or modify, or to make suitable to requirements or conditions. For instance, you might say you've adapted your behavior to a new country by learning the language and customs. You might also say you've accommodated yourself to your new country by learning the language and customs. The key difference here is that the direct object for adapt cannot be a person, while for accommodate, it can be a person as well as an inanimate object. Thus, no matter how much one may want to, one cannot adapt other people, but one can accommodate them, which may also mean one can host or take care of them.

synonym for happy

jubilant

adjective [ joo-buh-luhnt ]

jubilant is another word for happy

To be jubilant is to show great joy or triumph. Contrasted with the word happy, which conveys delight but not necessarily to a high (or noisy) degree, jubilant shouts its elation from the rooftops. It comes from the Latin verb jūbilāre meaning "to shout, whoop," and fittingly, you're most likely to find it describing the mood or manner of people gathered in celebration, or with something to "whoop" about, as a success or victory.

Commonly found as

loud and jubilant
