English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. outcome

    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, issue, outgrowth, result, sequel, upshot

How to use outcome in a sentence?

  1. President Barack Obama:

    For us to test the possibility that engagement leads to a better outcome for the Cuban people, there aren't that many risks for us, it's a tiny little country.

    It's extremely satisfying to have stretches where I played poorly and still came away with a win, not the best start, but certainly OK with the outcome.

    All of those actions together -- or this really rapid multisectorial response -- was the key to having a successful outcome.

  5. Walter Shaub:

    This is a conflict of interest because Donald Trump's going to benefit by the outcome of this. In fact, if Donald Trump was any federal employee other than the president of the United States, it would be a crime for Donald Trump to be involved in this activity, donald Trump's exempt from the criminal conflict of interest law but that wasn't intended as a perk of high office and it was expected that Donald Trump would act as though Donald Trump were covered by it.
