V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: to reveal something, especially something private or secret

Synonyms: disclose, reveal, tell, expose

Antonyms: hide, mask

Tips: Divulge comes from the Latin divulgare, which means "to make public to the masses." It is not, however, exclusive to exposing information to a large group; you can divulge a secret to just one person, for instance. When something is divulged, such as information important to a negotiation, it is exposed or revealed. Divulge is a more formal and sophisticated way to say "disclose" or "tell."

Usage Examples:

If the contents of the report are divulged to the public, the results could be disastrous for our company. (disclosed)

I will not divulge her secret. (reveal, expose)

A true friend is one to whom you can divulge information with complete trust. (disclose, tell)

You shouldn't divulge other people's secrets. (reveal, tell)
