English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. occasion

    The efficient cause, that which makes anything to be or be done, is the common meaning of the word, as in the saying "There is no effect without a cause." Every man instinctively recognizes himself acting through will as the cause of his own actions. The Creator is the Great First Cause of all things. A condition is something that necessarily precedes a result, but does not produce it. An antecedent simply precedes a result, with or without any agency in producing it; as, Monday is the invariable antecedent of Tuesday, but not the cause of it. The direct antonym of cause is effect, while that of antecedent is consequent. An occasion is some event which brings a cause into action at a particular moment; gravitation and heat are the causes of an avalanche; the steep incline of the mountain-side is a necessary condition, and the shout of the traveler may be the occasion of its fall. Causality is the doctrine or principle of causes, causation the action or working of causes. Compare DESIGN; REASON.

    Synonyms:
    actor, agent, antecedent, author, causality, causation, cause, condition, creator, designer, former, fountain, motive, origin, originator, power, precedent, reason, reason, source, spring

    Antonyms:
    consequence, creation, development, effect, end, end, event, fruit, issue, outcome, outgrowth, product, result

    Preposition:
    The cause of the disaster; cause for interference.
