English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. mastery

    Victory is the state resulting from the overcoming of an opponent or opponents in any contest, or from the overcoming of difficulties, obstacles, evils, etc., considered as opponents or enemies. In the latter sense any hard-won achievement, advantage, or success may be termed a victory. In conquest and mastery there is implied a permanence of state that is not implied in victory. Triumph, originally denoting the public rejoicing in honor of a victory, has come to signify also a peculiarly exultant, complete, and glorious victory. Compare CONQUER.

    achievement, advantage, conquest, success, supremacy, triumph, victory

    Antonyms:
    defeat, destruction, disappointment, disaster, failure, frustration, miscarriage, overthrow, retreat, rout
