English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. expirationnoun

    The end is the terminal part of a material object that has length; the extremity is distinctively the terminal point, and may thus be but part of the end in the general sense of that word; the extremity is viewed as that which is most remote from some center, or some mean or standard position; the southern end of South America includes all Patagonia, the southern extremity or point is Cape Horn. Tip has nearly the same meaning as extremity, but is said of small or slight and tapering objects; as, the tip of the finger; point in such connections is said of that which is drawn out to exceeding fineness or sharpness, as the point of a needle, a fork, or a sword; extremity is said of something considerable; we do not speak of the extremity of a needle. Terminus is chiefly used to designate the end of a line of travel or transportation: specifically, the furthermost station in any direction on a railway, or by extension the town or village where it is situated. Termination is the Latin and more formal word for the Saxon end, but is chiefly used of time, words, undertakings, or abstractions of any kind. Expiration signifies the coming to an end in the natural course of things; as, the expiration of a year, or of a lease; it is used of things of some consequence; we do not ordinarily speak of the expiration of an hour or of a day. Limit implies some check to or restraint upon further advance, right, or privilege; as, the limits of an estate (compare BOUNDARY). A goal is an end sought or striven for, as in a race. For the figurative senses of end and its associated words, compare the synonyms for the verb END; also for AIM; CONSEQUENCE; DESIGN.

How to use expiration in a sentence?

  1. The Rev. Robert Turner:

    This is the same city in Tulsa Negroes that was complicit at best, a co-conspirator at worst, even though it's been 100 years, if it was wrong in Tulsa Negroes, it's still wrong in 2021. There's no expiration date on morality. Wrong doesn't expire.

  2. Jack Pitney:

    Every con game has an expiration date.

  3. Heidi Klum:

    Sometimes people say, ‘You’re 44, you’re turning 45, why are you not giving the baton to someone else?’ But I think there’s a lot of women my age, 50, 60, 70 — what, do we have an expiration date? Can we not also still feel sexy? Why do we always have to see 20-year-olds or 30-year-olds in campaigns? Why can an older woman also be in a campaign? So I’m still doing it until I don’t feel like doing it anymore.

  4. Robert Yawger:

    Yesterday was ridiculous. That was expiration psychosis, we have not seen that kind of gyration in quite some time.

  5. David Alwadish:

    If you submit your email address and your passport’s expiration date, we will send you a reminder nine months before your passport expires.
