English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. cessation(n)

    The end is the terminal part of a material object that has length; the extremity is distinctively the terminal point, and may thus be but part of the end in the general sense of that word; the extremity is viewed as that which is most remote from some center, or some mean or standard position; the southern end of South America includes all Patagonia, the southern extremity or point is Cape Horn. Tip has nearly the same meaning as extremity, but is said of small or slight and tapering objects; as, the tip of the finger; point in such connections is said of that which is drawn out to exceeding fineness or sharpness, as the point of a needle, a fork, or a sword; extremity is said of something considerable; we do not speak of the extremity of a needle. Terminus is chiefly used to designate the end of a line of travel or transportation: specifically, the furthermost station in any direction on a railway, or by extension the town or village where it is situated. Termination is the Latin and more formal word for the Saxon end, but is chiefly used of time, words, undertakings, or abstractions of any kind. Expiration signifies the coming to an end in the natural course of things; as, the expiration of a year, or of a lease; it is used of things of some consequence; we do not ordinarily speak of the expiration of an hour or of a day. Limit implies some check to or restraint upon further advance, right, or privilege; as, the limits of an estate (compare BOUNDARY). A goal is an end sought or striven for, as in a race. For the figurative senses of end and its associated words, compare the synonyms for the verb END; also for AIM; CONSEQUENCE; DESIGN.

How to use cessation in a sentence?

  1. Joseph McClernon:

    It's a frontier area, and one that we are interested in going after in terms of interventions for smoking cessation.

  2. State John Kerry:

    It's fair to say three weeks ago there were very, very few people who believed a cessation of hostilities was possible in Syria, the result of that work has produced some progress. There has been a fragile (yet) nevertheless beneficial reduction in violence.

  3. State John Kerry:

    I'm pleased to say that as a result today in Munich, we believe we have made progress on both the humanitarian front and the cessation of hostilities front, and these two fronts, this progress, has the potential -- fully implemented, fully followed through on -- to be able to change the daily lives of the Syrian people, first, we have agreed to accelerate and expand the delivery of humanitarian aid beginning immediately.

  4. Clarissa Ward:

    Firstly, in the run-up to this cessation of hostilities there was a dramatic increase in the intensiveness ... of Russian aerial bombardment and also of the regime warplanes of Bashar al-Assad, secondly, the people living in rebel territory don't trust the Assad regime and see this cessation of hostilities as a trick designed so that the regime can take more territory.

  5. Mike Pompeo:

    The time is now for the cessation of hostilities, including missile and UAV strikes from Houthi-controlled areas into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Subsequently, Coalition air strikes must cease in all populated areas in Yemen, we've got to move toward a peace effort here, and you can't say we're going to do it sometime in the future. We need to be doing this in the next 30 days. We've admired this problem for long enough down there, and I believe that Saudi Arabia and the Emirates are ready, and in fact had the Houthis not walked out of the last effort that Martin Griffiths had going, we'd probably be on our way there right now.
