English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. causation

    The efficient cause, that which makes anything to be or be done, is the common meaning of the word, as in the saying "There is no effect without a cause." Every man instinctively recognizes himself acting through will as the cause of his own actions. The Creator is the Great First Cause of all things. A condition is something that necessarily precedes a result, but does not produce it. An antecedent simply precedes a result, with or without any agency in producing it; as, Monday is the invariable antecedent of Tuesday, but not the cause of it. The direct antonym of cause is effect, while that of antecedent is consequent. An occasion is some event which brings a cause into action at a particular moment; gravitation and heat are the causes of an avalanche; the steep incline of the mountain-side is a necessary condition, and the shout of the traveler may be the occasion of its fall. Causality is the doctrine or principle of causes, causation the action or working of causes. Compare DESIGN; REASON.

    Synonyms:
    actor, agent, antecedent, author, causality, cause, condition, creator, designer, former, fountain, motive, occasion, origin, originator, power, precedent, reason, reason, source, spring

    Antonyms:
    consequence, creation, development, effect, end, end, event, fruit, issue, outcome, outgrowth, product, result

    Preposition:
    The cause of the disaster; cause for interference.

How to use causation in a sentence?

  1. Mark Green:

    There appears to be some evidence that as vaccine numbers increase, rates of autism increase, we need better research, and we need it fast. We also need complete transparency of any data. Vaccines are essential to good population health. But that does not mean we should not look closely at the correlation for any causation.

  2. Adrian Vella:

    I think the general message always should be that association studies do not actually imply causation.

  3. Lion Shahab:

    There are statistical techniques available to do this, for instance using time-series analysis, which attempt to link changes in a putative risk factor with changes in the outcome of interest over time. This was not done here, second, even if such a link were found, correlation does not imply causation.

  4. Martin Rossor:

    It is important to be cautious about associations, as they do not prove causation, for example, depression is common before the onset of dementia, and so those individuals receiving an antidepressant drug with anticholinergic effects may already have a disease such as Alzheimer's disease that will lead to dementia 10 years later.

  5. Brian Alexander:

    One piece is unlikely to be to important as to causation, it they recover additional pieces and additional evidence, there could be a different dynamic from the legal perspective concerning airline manufacturers.
