English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. event

    Etymologically, the incident is that which falls in, the event that which comes out; event is thus greater and more signal than incident; we speak of trifling incidents, great events; incidents of daily life, events of history. Circumstance agrees with incident in denoting a matter of relatively slight importance, but implies a more direct connection with the principal matter; "circumstantial evidence" is evidence from seemingly minor matters directly connected with a case; "incidental evidence" would be some evidence that happened unexpectedly to touch it. An occurrence is, etymologically, that which we run against, without thought of its origin, connection or tendency. An episode is connected with the main course of events, like an incident or circumstance, but is of more independent interest and importance. Outcome is the Saxon, and event the Latin for expressing the same original idea. Consequence or result would express more of logical connection, and be more comprehensive. The end may be simple cessation; the event is what has been accomplished; the event of a war is victory or defeat; the end of the war is reached when a treaty of peace is signed. Since the future is contingent, event comes to have the meaning of a contingency; as, in the event of his death, the policy will at once fall due. Compare CIRCUMSTANCE; CONSEQUENCE; END.

    Synonyms:
    case, chance, circumstance, consequence, contingency, end, end, episode, fact, fortune, incident, issue, occurrence, outcome, possibility, result, sequel

  1. Matt Paul:

    I can understand the decision to want to do your own event, you are more than likely going to see the people who are in the room several times before the caucuses, but it would have been a good opportunity for Barack Obama to demonstrate the support Barack Obama has in the state, which is significant.

  2. Ray Kurzweil, The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence:

    Take death for example. A great deal of our effort goes into avoiding it. We make extraordinary efforts to delay it, and often consider its intrusion a tragic event. Yet we'd find it hard to live without it. Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.
