English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. qualification

    Power is the most general term of this group, including every quality, property, or faculty by which any change, effect, or result is, or may be, produced; as, the power of the legislature to enact laws, or of the executive to enforce them; the power of an acid to corrode a metal; the power of a polished surface to reflect light. Ability is nearly coextensive with power, but does not reach the positiveness and vigor that may be included in the meaning of power, ability often implying latent, as distinguished from active power; we speak of an exertion of power, but not of an exertion of ability. Power and ability include capacity, which is power to receive; but ability is often distinguished from capacity, as power that may be manifested in doing, as capacity is in receiving; one may have great capacity for acquiring knowledge, and yet not possess ability to teach. Efficiency is active power to effect a definite result, the power that actually does, as distinguished from that which may do. Competency is equal to the occasion, readiness prompt for the occasion. Faculty is an inherent quality of mind or body; talent, some special mental ability. Dexterity and skill are readiness and facility in action, having a special end; talent is innate, dexterity and skill are largely acquired. Our abilities include our natural capacity, faculties, and talents, with all the dexterity, skill, and readiness that can be acquired. Efficacy is the power to produce an intended effect as shown in the production of it; as, the efficacy of a drug. Efficiency is effectual agency, competent power; efficiency is applied in mechanics as denoting the ratio of the effect produced to the power expended in producing it; but this word is chiefly used of intelligent agents as denoting the quality that brings all one's power to bear promptly and to the best purpose on the thing to be done. Compare ADDRESS; DEXTERITY; SKILFUL.

    ability, aptitude, capability, capacity, cleverness, cogency, competency, dexterity, efficacy, efficiency, energy, expertness, faculty, force, might, power, readiness, skill, strength, susceptibility, talent

How to use qualification in a sentence?

  1. Irishman Clarke:

    With five rookies currently in, I'll probably be looking towards experience to balance the team, you know, you've got the likes of Lee Westwood, who has been playing very well again. He's just outside the qualification points at the moment and there are a few other seasons guys that are right there too.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    The future of the nation depends on the wisdom of its population and not on the people's wealth or even on their academic qualification called education.

  3. Don Beyer:

    Trump gave power to make decisions at the VA - affecting every US veteran - to three men who are neither government officials nor vets. Their only qualification : membership at Mar-A-Lago, for which they pay Trump.

  4. Cruz Paul:

    For traditional citizenship it always has been (your parent), but the only part of the Constitution that says 'natural-born' is with regard to the President. So it appears to be a unique qualification and most people have interpreted they had to be born in the U.S. until recently, so I think eventually the Supreme Court will probably have to decide it.

  5. Hull City Irvine:

    I think it's maybe a game we might not have always won in recent times and I think that shows how far we've come, we've always had a very good mentality of not losing games but maybe sometimes we've drawn games, particularly in the qualification process, that we (maybe) haven't played particularly well and couldn't quite nick that win.
