English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. expectancy

    Expectation may be either of good or evil; presentiment almost always, apprehension and foreboding always, of evil; anticipation and antepast, commonly of good. Thus, we speak of the pleasures of anticipation. A foretaste may be of good or evil, and is more than imaginary; it is a part actually received in advance. Foresight and forethought prevent future evil and secure future good by timely looking forward, and acting upon what is foreseen. Compare ANTICIPATE.

How to use expectancy in a sentence?

  1. Martin McKee:

  2. Jeremy Warner:

    I think the public perceives cancer as perhaps a catch-all, but there are at least 120 different types of cancer, some of which have essentially normal life expectancy with treatment.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Interestingly, Paleo Diet is getting extremely popular nowadays. It's also known as: Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet and Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It's basically the diet that includes raw wild plants and animals eaten by human beings during the Paleolithic era (that ended 10,000 years ago.) It's an interesting dichotomy, imho, in light of the fact that most cavemen actually died as early as the age of 25. During that era, very few could make it anywhere close to the modern day life expectancy of 85 to 95 in many countries. There is absolutely no good alternative to balanced good diet, be it Paleo or otherwise, and most importantly, refraining from smoking and drinking excessively. Have a wonderful healthy life!

  4. Dan Buettner:

  5. Naho Morisaki:

    This may also affect Japanese life expectancy.
