Syn: Conflict; combat; battle; encounter; shock; struggle;

Usage: {Contest}, {Conflict}, {Combat}, {Encounter}. Contest
is the broadest term, and had originally no reference
to actual fighting. It was, on the contrary, a legal
term signifying to call witnesses, and hence came to
denote first a struggle in argument, and then a
struggle for some common object between opposing
parties, usually one of considerable duration, and
implying successive stages or acts. Conflict denotes
literally a close personal engagement, in which sense
it is applied to actual fighting. It is, however, more
commonly used in a figurative sense to denote
strenuous or direct opposition; as, a mental conflict;
conflicting interests or passions; a conflict of laws.
An encounter is a direct meeting face to face. Usually
it is a hostile meeting, and is then very nearly
coincident with conflict; as, an encounter of opposing
hosts. Sometimes it is used in a looser sense; as,
"this keen encounter of our wits." --Shak. Combat is
commonly applied to actual fighting, but may be used
figuratively in reference to a strife or words or a
struggle of feeling.
[1913 Webster]
