Usage: These words indicate things which arise out of some antecedent, or follow as a consequent. Effect, which may be regarded as the generic term, denotes that which springs directly from something which can properly be termed a cause. A consequence is more remote, not being strictly caused, nor yet a mere sequence, but following out of and following indirectly, or in the train of events, something on which it truly depends. A result is still more remote and variable, like the rebound of an elastic body which falls in very different directions. We may foresee the effects of a measure, may conjecture its consequences, but can rarely discover its final results. [1913 Webster] Resolving all events, with their effects And manifold results, into the will And arbitration wise of the Supreme. --Cowper. [1913 Webster] Shun the bitter consequence, for know, The day thou eatest thereof, . . . thou shalt die. --Milton. [1913 Webster]Din dicționarul WordNet (r) 2.0 :
