Communicate   Listen
verb
Communicate  v. t.  (past & past part. communicated; pres. part. communicating)  
1.
To share in common; to participate in. (Obs.) "To thousands that communicate our loss."
2.
To impart; to bestow; to convey; as, to communicate a disease or a sensation; to communicate motion by means of a crank. "Where God is worshiped, there he communicates his blessings and holy influences."
3.
To make known; to recount; to give; to impart; as, to communicate information to any one.
4.
To administer the communion to. (R.) "She (the church)... may communicate him." Note: This verb was formerly followed by with before the person receiving, but now usually takes to after it. "He communicated those thoughts only with the Lord Digby."
Synonyms: To impart; bestow; confer; reveal; disclose; tell; announce; recount; make known. To Communicate, Impart, Reveal. Communicate is the more general term, and denotes the allowing of others to partake or enjoy in common with ourselves. Impart is more specific. It is giving to others a part of what we had held as our own, or making them our partners; as, to impart our feelings; to impart of our property, etc. Hence there is something more intimate in imparting intelligence than in communicating it. To reveal is to disclose something hidden or concealed; as, to reveal a secret.
