contend
used in The Merchant of Venice

only 1 use
  • Like one of two contending in a prize, That thinks he hath done well in people's eyes, Hearing applause and universal shout, Giddy in spirit, still gazing in a doubt Whether those peals of praise be his or no; So, thrice-fair lady, stand I, even so, As doubtful whether what I see be true, Until confirm'd, sign'd, ratified by you.
    3.2 — Act 3 Scene 2 — Belmont. A room in PORTIA's house (43% in)
