certainty is a synonym of belief

noun [ sur-tn-tee ]

certainty is another word for belief

Belief is the best word to refer to an acceptance that something is right or true, without immediate proof (They had complete belief in his story).

Certainty is the best word to refer to a strong internal conviction that something is right or true, also without necessarily needing proof (In his mind, it was a certainty that the earth is flat).

Belief is a more general word, whereas certainty implies a stronger conviction (a belief in the goodness of people; It’s a certainty that I annoy her).

✅ That doesn’t mean that a certainty is necessarily more likely to be true than belief. The difference between the two words comes down to a lack of doubt: certainty suggests that there’s no doubt in your mind at all, whereas belief is slightly more neutral.

Try using certainty in a paragraph about a monster or a ghost with the help of Grammar Coach.

entreat is a synonym of appeal

verb [ en-treet ]

entreat is another word for appeal

Appeal means to ask for help or support in a cause, generally on the grounds of justice or reason (make an appeal for money to fix the roof).

Entreat means to plead with someone, and often suggests that you’re relying on their sympathy or better nature (He entreated the kidnappers to let him go).

Appeal can suggest a formal request or a request put forward by a group. It’s also often used in legal contexts (appeal the conviction).

Entreat is a formal word, but isn’t generally used in political or legal contexts in the same way that appeal is. Entreat also carries a sense of urgency that appeal usually does not (entreat her to help before it was too late).
