Dismiss, free, release, discharge may all mean to set at liberty, let loose, or let go. Dismiss, meaning to send away,usually has the meaning of forcing to go unwillingly (to dismiss an employee), but may refer to giving permission to go: The class was dismissed before time. Discharge, meaning originally to relieve of a burden ( to discharge a gun), has come to refer to that which is sent away, and is often a close synonym to dismiss; it is used in the meaning permit to go in connection with courts and the armed forces: The army officer was discharged from duty. Release and free, when applied to persons, suggest a helpful action. Both may be used (not always interchangeably) of delivering a person from confinement or obligation: for eg. to free or release from prison.
