English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. hazard

    Hazard is the incurring the possibility of loss or harm for the possibility of benefit; danger may have no compensating alternative. In hazard the possibilities of gain or loss are nearly balanced; in risk the possibility of loss is the chief thought; the foolhardy take great risks in mere wantonness; in chance and venture the hope of good predominates; we speak of a merchant's venture, but of an insurance company's risk; one may be driven by circumstances to run a risk; he freely seeks a venture; we speak of the chance of winning, the hazard or risk of losing. Accidents are incalculable; casualties may be to a certain extent anticipated; death and wounds are casualties of battle, certain to happen to some, but uncertain as to whom or how many. A contingency is simply an indeterminable future event, which may or may not be attended with danger or risk. See ACCIDENT; DANGER.

How to use hazard in a sentence?

    The main feature is the safety cage with the seatbelt, and the idea is that it's wide enough that it won't go under the side of a lorry, of a modern bus or lorry, so it gets pushed away instead, and also if you're hit by a car it's effectively the same as a car roll cage. It's also got on the final version wing mirrors, indicators, hazard flashers, and a loud horn.

  4. Zachary Ross:
