gainsay (verb) deny.

When you gainsay a thing you deny it. You say that it is not true or correct. None can gainsay, for example, that at present, the US is the most powerful nation in the word. That is, no one can say that it is not the most powerful nation in the world. None can gainsay that the former USSR was ahead of the US, at least in the beginning, in space technology. That is, it is undeniable that the USSR was more advanced in space technology than the US.

  • None can gainsay the fact that democracy, in spite of its defects, is still the best form of governments, as it alone guarantees a lot of freedom to the individual.
  • We cannot gainsay that the troubled peace on planet Earth is due to the lack of trust among the nations as a result of which they are reluctant to shed their nuclear weapons.
