English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. means

    In strict philosophical usage, the prime mover or doer of an act is the agent. Thus we speak of man as a voluntary agent, a free agent. But in common usage, especially in business, an agent is not the prime actor, but only an instrument or factor, acting under orders or instructions. Compare CAUSE.

    actor, agent, doer, factor, instrument, mover, operator, performer, promoter

    chief, inventor, originator, principal

    Preposition:
    An agent of the company for selling, etc.
