incessant

adjective

Definition: uninterrupted and continuous

Synonyms: constant, unending, ceaseless, continuous, uninterrupted, perpetual

Antonyms: temporary, periodic

Tips: Incessant literally means "not stopping." It comes from the Latin cessare, "to stop," with the prefix in-, "not." Something incessant feels like it's never-ending and is usually bothersome, like "incessant noise."
