Is language powerful words. People use them rarely. Perhaps that's why the question arises that such a collapse would Answer it thoroughly and with examples.


what collapse

The collapse say when something or someone has suffered not just a failure or a defeat and complete defeat. And it doesn't matter what it is: sport, study, work. The dictionary indicates that the word “collapse” the two values.

  1. In the economic sphere so characterize the bankruptcy or ruin.
  2. In a figurative sense - an epic defeat, failure.

Now, it is clear that such a collapse. Stock is falling not only on the stock exchanges. Rapidly depreciate and human hopes, maybe even faster than securities.

Imagine, the student was an excellent student, and then started to have problems with behavior, everything went wrong, he was kicked out of school – he failed. After some time the young man went first as a watchman, then as a janitor, then began to write great short stories, famous and climbed up to Olympus. The story ended well.

So what is the collapse? This is not just a defeat, but a complete failure. The notion of “collapse” it is the distance from the original aspirations to the point of failure, usually in such cases, this distance is impressive. Why, for example, talking about the collapse of youthful dreams and hopes? Because every young man fancies himself a genius, then he shows who he really is. Because the crash.

Okay, enough sadness. Let's move to the replacement word.


The Reader knows all the words that we offer as replacements. Here one:

  • Bankrotstvo.
  • Razoreye.
  • Proval.
  • Newdata.
  • Porajenie.
  • Fiasco.
  • Razgrom.

For all the words on the list , except for the fiasco, it is best to mentally add the adjective “huge”, “huge”, “fundamental”, “epic”.

Examples of notable failures

The world Cup of 1998 was a long time ago, but those who listens to Russian rock, not so easy to forget. Group "DDT" so much hurt defeat of the national team of Jamaica with the score 0:5 in the match against Argentina that their leader Vladimir Shahrin wrote the song “Argentina-Jamaica 5:0". Yes, it was a real failure. If someone wants to know what a collapse, let him watch the match and listened to the song. Watch football where a lot of goals, boring.

However, we are talking about language, we'll give a literary example of the brutal slaughter of the writer. Of course, it begs from Martin Eden. But we would like to talk about something else.

the collapse of the meaning of the word

There is a novel in Faulkner - “the sound and the fury”. The story we recount is not quite a difficult task. American classic called this novel his biggest failure. But do not think that it is poorly written. As the author himself explains in an interview, he had a goal – to tell the story and he told it from different people, and all have failed miserably. This is a very complicated affair. I think he's many readers will be forced to experience the fantastic feeling of failure, in other words, collapse. Because not every master.

Example of Faulkner proves that “collapse” (the meaning of the word we have already discussed) as a concept can be bestowed in a most peculiar content. Victory may be a defeat and Vice versa. Those who have not read an American classic, do not delay this matter indefinitely, unless, of course, like literary challenges.
