English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. authorization

    Authority unites the right and power of control; age, wisdom, and character give authority to their possessor; a book of learned research has authority, and is even called an authority. Permission justifies another in acting without interference or censure, and usually implies some degree of approval. Authority gives a certain right of control over all that may be affected by the action. There may be a failure to object, which constitutes an implied permission, tho this is more properly expressed by allowance; we allow what we do not oppose, permit what we expressly authorize. The noun permit implies a formal written permission. License is a formal permission granted by competent authority to an individual to do some act or pursue some business which would be or is made to be unlawful without such permission; as, a license to preach, to solemnize marriages, or to sell intoxicating liquors. A license is permission granted rather than authority conferred; the sheriff has authority (not permission nor license) to make an arrest. Consent is permission by the concurrence of wills in two or more persons, a mutual approval or acceptance of something proposed. Compare ALLOW.

    Synonyms:
    allowance, authority, consent, leave, liberty, license, permission, permit

    Antonyms:
    denial, hindrance, objection, opposition, prevention, prohibition, refusal, resistance

How to use authorization in a sentence?

  1. Alexander Southwell:

    This is really a classic case or corporate espionage, this is an outgrowth of a desire to compete. When you are accessing somebody's computer system without authorization, that violates federal and possible state law. That goes beyond healthy competition.

  2. Kirsten Gillibrand:

    I think we should be drawing down our troops, not only in Afghanistan but the remainder in Iraq and Syria, and then give Congress the opportunity that if they believe we should be in combat missions in any of these countries that we actually file a new authorization for the use of military force.

  3. Bob Corker:

    Voting to authorize the use of military force is one of the most important actions Congress can take, and while there will be differences, it is my hope that we will fulfill our constitutional responsibility, and in a bipartisan way, pass an authorization that allows us to confront this serious threat.

  4. Joni Ernst:

    Well, I would love that Senate Republicans would sign National Defense Authorization Act and move forward, but absolutely, we have to have the discussions, we have to do that. And if that's what will help, if we can all get together as stakeholders, then I think National Defense Authorization Act's the right thing to do.

  5. President Obama on Wednesday:

    The authorization I propose would provide the flexibility to conduct ground combat operations in other more limited circumstances, such as rescue operations involving U.S. or coalition personnel or the use of special operations forces to take military action against ISIL leadership, it would also authorize the use of U.S. forces in situations where ground combat operations are not expected or intended, such as intelligence collection and sharing, missions to enable kinetic strikes or the provision of operational planning and other forms of advice and assistance to partner forces.
