- n. A strong and durable woolen or worsted fabric: also called everlasting, and formerly durance. It is usually black, and is used for buttons and for the uppers of women's shoes. It is woven either with a double twill or with a satin-twill (then called
Denmark satin). Draw-bays, prunella, and serge de berry are varieties of lasting.
- Continuing in time; durable; of long continuance; that may continue or endure: as, a lasting good or evil; a lasting color.
- Synonyms Lasting. Durable, Permanent, Stable, enduring, abiding, undecaying. perpetual, unendiug. Lasting means resisting the effects of time or other influences tending to produce decay; continuing for a long time, or as long as the nature of the object admits. It is the proper word for abstract things: as, a lasting impression; sudden reformations are seldom lasting. Durable is preferable for tangible objects, and means capable of resisting wear and tear: as, durable material. Permanent, remaining to the end, abiding for ever, applies equally to physical and abstract objects: as, a permanent dye; a permanent situation; the grave is a permanent resting-place. Permanent and stable imply less of resistance than the others. Stable means permanent in its place, lasting upon its foundations, able to stand indefinitely: as, a stable form of government; a stable character.
- adj. Persisting for an extended period of time.
- v. present participle of last.
