English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. issue

    Effect is the strongest of these words; it is that which is directly produced by the action of an efficient cause; we say, "Every effect must have an adequate cause" (compare CAUSE). In regard to human actions, effect commonly relates to intention; as, the shot took effect, i. e., the effect intended. A consequence is that which follows an act naturally, but less directly than the effect. The motion of the piston is the effect, and the agitation of the water under the paddle-wheels a consequence of the expansion of steam in the cylinder. The result is, literally, the rebound of an act, depending on many elements; the issue is that which flows forth directly; we say the issue of a battle, the result of a campaign. A consequent commonly is that which follows simply in order of time, or by logical inference. The end is the actual outcome without determination of its relation to what has gone before; it is ordinarily viewed as either the necessary, natural, or logical outcome, any effect, consequence, or result being termed an end; as, the end of such a course must be ruin. The event (Latin e, out, and venio, come) is primarily exactly the same in meaning as outcome; but in use it is more nearly equivalent to upshot signifying the sum and substance of all effects, consequences, and results of a course of action. Compare ACCIDENT; CAUSE; CIRCUMSTANCE; END; EVENT.

    Synonyms:
    consequence, consequent, effect, end, end, event, outcome, outgrowth, result, sequel, upshot

How to use issue in a sentence?

  1. Betsy DeVos:

    I am pleased and grateful the President and I see eye-to-eye on this issue and that he has decided to fund Education Betsy DeVos Special The Special Olympics grant. This is funding I have fought for behind the scenes over the last several years.

  2. Cassi Free:

    The CDC states online that gasoline-powered engines on boats, including onboard generators, produce carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless and odorless gas that can poison or kill someone who breathes too much of it. The generators on many boats vent toward the rear, meaning that someone sitting there can be put at risk for CO poisoning. Additionally, traveling at slow speeds or idling in the water can cause CO to build up in a boats cabin, cockpit, bridge, and aft deck, or in an open area. Wind from the aft section of the boat can increase this buildup of CO, per the CDC. Johnathan and Blake both required oxygen to bring down their CO levels. Blake has continued to have issues with memory and focus, while Johnathan has struggled with energy levels, Cassi said. CORONAVIRUS PEDIATRIC FATALITIES MOSTLY AMONG MINORITIES, THOSE WITH UNDERLYING CONDITIONS, CDC SAYS We thought it was due to the grief and had him in counseling, but we are now being told that grief may not be the only issue, Cassi said of her 15-year-old, noting that both boys are scheduled for MRIs and have a referral to begin sessions with a neuropsychiatrist to hopefully start a regimen that is supposed to help repair any damaged neurological connections. Moving forward has been hard for the Free family, with Cassi noting that she and Brett struggle daily. The joy has disappeared. Weve always been an active family, but we have little energy to do anything anymore. As I stand in these shoes, Ive realized that there are so many ways to notify people, other boaters, of the dangers, she said. The Free family had never heard of boats causing carbon monoxide poisoning before.  (Courtesy of Cassi Free) New boats may have less risk, but many new boats cost as much as a house. A Mastercraft X26 costs $165,000. So for those with a smaller budget, your risks can be exponentially higher, many, if not all, new boats have warnings stamped on them. Used boats do not. And people with new boats, those who are lucky enough to be privy to the few notifications that are made available, forget that a cared-for boat can last for decades- and that the lakes are full of boats that have the potential to backdraft lethal levels of CO into the back seating area.

  3. Rob Portman:

    The President should not have raised the Hunter Biden in Ukraine issue on that call, period. It's not appropriate for a president to engage a foreign government in an investigation of a political opponent, i don't view it as an impeachable offense. I think the House, frankly, rushed to impeachment assuming certain things.

  4. Miguel Proenca:

    There could not be a more interesting time to explore the issue of the European borders, and obviously the refugee crisis and the terrorist attacks gave a different meaning to the project we are developing, because we decided to focus on the domestic borders, in the larger picture, the questions that we were asking ourselves and the essay raised is still the same and is about the identity of Europe: the multiculturalism, citizenship, economy, different speeds of growing, communitarian isolation and discrimination.

  5. Mary Ann:

    Until you have lost a loved one to an illegal criminal, you will never truly understand the other side of this issue.
