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. Ben Cloutier:

    HB 99 also provides a permit to illegal immigrants, called a driving authorization card, that cannot be used for federal identification purposes.

  2. Rand Paul:

    While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked, the President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate.

  3. 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.

  4. Eliot Engel:

    To avoid having to justify its actions to Congress, The Trump administration falsely claims Congress had already authorized the strike under the 2002 Iraq war resolution. This legal theory is absurd, the 2002 authorization was passed to deal with Saddam Hussein. This law had nothing to do with Iran or Iranian government officials in Iraq. To suggest that 18 years later this authorization could justify killing an Iranian official stretches the law far beyond anything Congress ever intended.

  5. Adam Schiff:

    It is my hope that the administration will be willing to accept important limits in a new authorization as well as the sunset or repeal of the old [ authorizations ], as this will be necessary to ensure strong bipartisan support and meet the goals the president set last summer of refining and repealing the prior authorizations.
