Synonyms of endure in English:
In the northern parts of Britain, particularly Northern Ireland, you can still hear this heartbreaking synonym for allow or permit. It comes into its own in times of trouble, for its strongest meaning is 'to endure something without complaint or resistance; to be afflicted and to suffer.' When someone dies in Northern Ireland, it is not uncommon to say to the bereaved "You'll have to thole," both as a fact and a consolation.Zadie Smith
