English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. combination

    A conspiracy is a combination of persons for an evil purpose, or the act of so combining. Conspiracy is a distinct crime under common, and generally under statutory, law. A faction is more extensive than a conspiracy, less formal in organization, less definite in plan. Faction and its adjective, factious, have always an unfavorable sense. Cabal commonly denotes a conspiracy of leaders. A gang is a company of workmen all doing the same work under one leader; the word is used figuratively only of combinations which it is meant to stigmatize as rude and mercenary; crew is used in a closely similar sense. A conclave is secret, but of larger numbers, ordinarily, than a cabal, and may have honorable use; as, the conclave of cardinals.

    Synonyms:
    cabal, conclave, confederacy, conspiracy, crew, faction, gang, junto

How to use combination in a sentence?

  1. Zoltan Csiki-Sava:

    Data collection concerning end-Cretaceous dinosaurs happened to start at about the same time in both Europe and North America – around the middle of the 19th century, it is only by chance (a combination between mainly better rock availability and more human effort poured into this line of research) that the North American fossil record grew more rapidly and soon become the best one in the world for that particular time period. As such, it captured attention and was used as a template to understand end-Cretaceous extinction. The data was harder to gather in other continents, including Europe, and the resolution of the European fossil record is still far from that coming from North America. But its growth is spectacular (we know probably twice as much about late Cretaceous fossil vertebrates from Europe then we knew like 20 years ago), and that is due to the activity of a large number of mainly young researchers working all across Europe.

  2. Kevin Lockhart:

    I believe there's a higher degree of uncertainty right now driven by a combination of historically low commodity prices and equity market volatility plus what happens with interest rates.

  3. Victor Anderson:

    It was the combination of many things, not the least of which was the complicated boundary between the two districts and changes made to voting precincts in recent years.

  4. Director Christine Lagarde:

    The G20 I think, is going to have to focus on spillovers, on spillbacks and on the combination of various policies in play at the moment.

  5. Martin Sikora:

    The last 40 to 50 years have been exceptionally quiet for us, because we've had such tremendous progress in medical research, the combination of vaccines and antibiotics, the eradication of smallpox gives us hope for the current situation.
