  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. The University of Chicago:

    Partial data from an ongoing clinical trial is by definition incomplete and should never be used to draw conclusions about the safety or efficacy of a potential treatment that is under investigation, in this case, information from an internal forum for research colleagues concerning work in progress was released without authorization. Drawing any conclusions at this point is premature and scientifically unsound.

  2. Judge Amy Berman Jackson:

    This confusion was not caused by the original trial team, the original trial team had authorization to submit.

  3. Brian Wieser:

    Verizon can append data it has, and has authorization to use in an anonymized fashion, to a digital ad sale, and it will have better insight as to when to buy low and sell high.

  4. Mitch McConnell:

    I think everyone agrees on a bipartisan basis those are the three things we must do here at the end of the session -- fund the government, make sure we don't have any retroactive tax increases and follow the tradition of many years which is to pass a National Defense Authorization Act, i'm confident the Senate will do that before we depart for the holidays.

  5. 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.
