Syn: To impart; bestow; confer; reveal; disclose; tell; announce; recount; make known.

Usage: 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. [1913 Webster]
