  1. addition

    An adjunct (something joined to) constitutes no real part of the thing or system to which it is joined, tho perhaps a valuable addition; an appendage is commonly a real, tho not an essential or necessary part of that with which it is connected; an appurtenance belongs subordinately to something by which it is employed, especially as an instrument to accomplish some purpose. A horse's tail is at once an ornamental appendage and a useful appurtenance; we could not call it an adjunct, tho we might use that word of his iron shoes. An attachment in machinery is some mechanism that can be brought into optional connection with the principal movement; a hemmer is a valuable attachment of a sewing-machine. An extension, as of a railroad or of a franchise, carries out further something already existing. We add an appendix to a book, to contain names, dates, lists, etc., which would encumber the text; we add a supplement to supply omissions, as, for instance, to bring it up to date. An appendix may be called an addendum; but addendum may be used of a brief note, which would not be dignified by the name of appendix; such notes are often grouped as addenda. An addition might be matter interwoven in the body of the work, an index, plates, editorial notes, etc., which might be valuable additions, but not within the meaning of appendix or supplement. Compare ACCESSORY; AUXILIARY.

    accessory, accompaniment, addendum, adjunct, appendage, appendix, appurtenance, attachment, auxiliary, concomitant, extension, supplement

    Antonyms:
    main body, original, total, whole

    Preposition:

How to use addition in a sentence?

  1. Bill Maher:

    This is why I'm a little hopeful that this purity purge may end because it's starting to eat its own, eSPN reporter Rachel Nichols was a feminist success story but when she complained in a private telephone call about ESPN's crappy longtime record on diversity and expressed her view that she felt like she was being sacrificed by the network so they could make up for that crappy longtime record on diversity, the call was leaked and she was toast. Now, in addition to the fact that a person should have to love getting fired, even if it does achieve more equity, this was a private call ! Does ‘ private ’ mean anything anymore ? Apparently not !

  2. Stacy DeWitt:

    When a child or youth enters foster care, they usually have no belongings of their own, it's been a great addition to be able to offer the art kits, so the children and youth have a creative outlet to process their emotions during this traumatic time in their lives.

  3. Toby Cooper:

    The honey was the obvious addition as this helps to reduce the hop bitterness which is accentuated at pressure, the Fuggle hops give nice earthiness and the longan fruit sits nicely in the background. We discounted using tea quite quickly as we didn't feel anything with tannins would help.

  4. Gary Miliefsky:

    [They] have become so frequent and due to the massively deployed secret botnets (malware running on computers all over the globe), you can lease a DDoS attack against any target, like Dyn, for a very low cost, in addition, with the exponential power of computing, one can build DoS equipment for less than $300.

  5. Palmdale Mayor Steven D. Hofbauer:

    We will fully cooperate with the Sheriff's Department, the Los Angeles County's Coroner's Offices, and any and all investigative agencies looking into the matter, we are awaiting all available details surrounding this tragedy. In addition, we are working with local community leaders to increase the dialogue on how we can best work together and build a safer and more inclusive community.
