V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: not important or significant because there are no consequences

Synonyms: irrelevant, insignificant, unimportant, immaterial, inadequate, inconsiderable, insufficient, trivial, trifling

Antonyms: consequential, valuable, significant, relevant, important, sufficient, necessary

Tips: The related noun consequence means "the result of an action." Something inconsequential has no resulting effects and this is why it means "unimportant;" it has no consequences. Inconsequential is a more sophisticated way of describing something unimportant or insignificant. Just remember that whatever you describe as being inconsequential is unimportant or insignificant because there will be no significant results or consequences--it has no impact.

Usage Examples:

His inconsequential rambling had nothing to do with the topic of conversation. (unimportant, irrelevant)

Many young students have a difficult time distinguishing between relevant and inconsequential information. (irrelevant, trivial)

I wasn't too worried about what he was doing because I knew his actions were inconsequential to me. (of no consequence, immaterial)

Our meeting was inconsequential and didn't bring about any change. (insufficient, trivial)
