English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. duration

    Sequence and succession apply to events viewed as following one another; time and duration denote something conceived of as enduring while events take place and acts are done. According to the necessary conditions of human thought, events are contained in time as objects are in space, time existing before the event, measuring it as it passes, and still existing when the event is past. Duration and succession are more general words than time; we can speak of infinite or eternal duration or succession, but time is commonly contrasted with eternity. Time is measured or measurable duration.

    age, date, eon, epoch, era, period, season, sequence, succession, term, time, while

How to use duration in a sentence?

  1. Stephanie Grisham:

    Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We don't get upset simply because someone lies, cheats and breaks our trust. In my view, we become upset because we can't trust that person (and folks like him/her) ever again. It's the violation and loss of our innocence that hurts us deep inside, for a short duration at least. Yet, when we rise from that freaky fall, we discover that we're stronger than ever before. It's true that what doesn't kill us often makes us stronger. So strange as it may sound, we should be thankful to that deceiving person, who offered us the golden opportunity in disguise - to eliminate our weakest links and to strengthen ourselves beyond our normal limitations. Cheers!

  3. Kasthuri Venkateswaran:
