English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. argument(n)

    While the cause of any event, act, or fact, as commonly understood, is the power that makes it to be, the reason of or for it is the explanation given by the human mind; but reason is, in popular language, often used as equivalent to cause, especially in the sense of final cause. In the statement of any reasoning, the argument may be an entire syllogism, or the premises considered together apart from the conclusion, or in logical strictness the middle term only by which the particular conclusion is connected with the general statement. But when the reasoning is not in strict logical form, the middle term following the conclusion is called the reason; thus in the statement "All tyrants deserve death; Cæsar was a tyrant; Therefore Cæsar deserved death," "Cæsar was a tyrant" would in the strictest sense be called the argument; but if we say "Cæsar deserved death because he was a tyrant," the latter clause would be termed the reason. Compare CAUSE; REASON, v.; MIND; REASONING.

    Synonyms:
    account, aim, cause, consideration, design, end, end, ground, motive, object, principle, purpose, reason, reason

    Preposition:
    The reason of a thing that is to be explained; the reason for a thing that is to be done.

  5. Jared Bernstein:

    I think he is wrong in a pretty profound way about that claim in the following sense and there's a way in which Larry's offering a warning that we've already heeded. ... I very much disagree with the thrust of the argument is that we have to go big and we have to go bold here to finally put this crisis, to finally put this virus behind us and to finally and reliably launch a robust, inclusive and racially equitable recovery, we have consistently said the risks of going to small are much greater than the risks of too much. Now that doesn't mean there are no risks engaged in the kind of work that we're doing because that's always the case in the economy.
