English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. consequence

    Effect is the strongest of these words; it is that which is directly produced by the action of an efficient cause; we say, "Every effect must have an adequate cause" (compare CAUSE). In regard to human actions, effect commonly relates to intention; as, the shot took effect, i. e., the effect intended. A consequence is that which follows an act naturally, but less directly than the effect. The motion of the piston is the effect, and the agitation of the water under the paddle-wheels a consequence of the expansion of steam in the cylinder. The result is, literally, the rebound of an act, depending on many elements; the issue is that which flows forth directly; we say the issue of a battle, the result of a campaign. A consequent commonly is that which follows simply in order of time, or by logical inference. The end is the actual outcome without determination of its relation to what has gone before; it is ordinarily viewed as either the necessary, natural, or logical outcome, any effect, consequence, or result being termed an end; as, the end of such a course must be ruin. The event (Latin e, out, and venio, come) is primarily exactly the same in meaning as outcome; but in use it is more nearly equivalent to upshot signifying the sum and substance of all effects, consequences, and results of a course of action. Compare ACCIDENT; CAUSE; CIRCUMSTANCE; END; EVENT.

    Synonyms:
    consequent, effect, end, end, event, issue, outcome, outgrowth, result, sequel, upshot

How to use consequence in a sentence?

  1. National Review:

    Proposition 47 downgraded a variety of ‘non-serious, nonviolent crimes’ that had previously been considered felonies to misdemeanors…. A thief may now steal something under (a $950 limit) on a daily basis and it will never rise to felony status.… In the event that a perpetrator is pursued and apprehended, the consequence can be a small fine or a brief stay in jail. In reality, these repercussions are rare, outrage in these circumstances is apolitical…. ‘Every bicycle in our building has been stolen,’ says Karen Burns, president of a San Francisco condo association. ‘I’ve caught so many people stealing packages. They don’t care. They know nothing will happen to them. It’s crazy. It’s horrible. I feel like these people need to go to jail.’.

  2. Robert Redfield:

    Those models that were done, they assumed that only about 50 % of the American public would pay attention to the recommendations. In fact, it would seem, a large majority of the American public are taking the social distancing recommendations to heart -- and I think that's the direct consequence of why you're seeing the numbers are going to be much, much, much, much lower than would've been predicted by the models.

  3. John Stuart Mill:

    As for charity, it is a matter in which the immediate effect on the persons directly concerned, and the ultimate consequence to the general good, are apt to be at complete war with one another.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    l'empathie est une condition importante pour un bon leadership. dirigeants devraient toujours se efforcer de comprendre les difficultés rencontrées par leurs partisans, de sorte que le leader peut devenir une partie intégrante de la solution élégante au problème - si ce ne est, le leader peut devenir une partie du problème comme une conséquence involontaire de son / ses non-actions. l'empathie est une grande qualité et un excellent atout pour les personnes efficaces leadership. être le leader avec empathie dans votre cœur!

  5. Alan Gross:

    It pains me to see them treated so unjustly as a consequence of two governments' mutually belligerent policies, five-and-a-half decades of history shows us that such belligerence inhibits better judgment. Two wrongs don't make a right.
