To determine or decide: chose to fly rather than drive. verb, intransitive To make a choice; make a selection: was used to doing as she chose. [Middle English chesen, from Old English cêosan.] Synonyms: choose, select, elect, pick. These verbs mean to make a choice from a number of possibilities. Choose implies the use of judgment in taking one of several persons, things, or courses of action: "We do not choose survival as a value; it chooses us" (B.F. Skinner). Select stresses fastidiousness in choosing from a wide variety: Four skiers will be selected to represent each country. Elect strongly suggests deliberation in making a selection, usually between alternatives: I elected not to go. Pick, like select, indicates care in choosing: "Not only do I knock 'em out, I pick the round" (Muhammad Ali).

Collect is often interchangeable with gather: A proctor will collect (or gather) the examination papers at the end of the hour. Tears collected (or gathered) in her eyes. Frequently, however, collect refers to the careful selection of like or related things that become part of an organized whole: collects antiques; collected stamps. Assemble in all of its senses implies that the persons or things involved have a definite and usually close relationship. With respect to persons the term suggests convening out of common interest or purpose: Assembling an able staff was more difficult than raising the funds to finance the venture. The new legislature will assemble in January. With respect to things assemble implies gathering and fitting together components, as of a structure or machine: The curator is devoting time and energy to assembling an interesting exhibit of Stone Age artifacts. Congregate refers chiefly to the coming together of a large number of persons or animals: After the lecture the physicians congregated in the library to compare notes. Accumulate applies to the increase of like or related things over an extended period: They gradually accumulated enough capital to be financially secure after retirement. Old newspapers and magazines are accumulating in the basement. Amass refers to the collection or accumulation of things, especially valuable things, to form an imposing quantity: families who amassed great fortunes in the days before income tax.
