Syn: To allow; let; grant; admit; suffer; tolerate; endure;
Usage: To Allow
. To allow
is more positive, denoting (at least originally and
etymologically) a decided assent, either directly or
by implication. To permit is more negative, and
imports only acquiescence or an abstinence from
prevention. The distinction, however, is often
disregarded by good writers. To suffer has a stronger
passive or negative sense than to permit, sometimes
implying against the will, sometimes mere
indifference. To tolerate is to endure what is
contrary to will or desire. To suffer and to tolerate
are sometimes used without discrimination.
