  Death \Death\ (d[e^]th), n. [OE. deth, dea[eth], AS.
     de['a][eth]; akin to OS. d[=o][eth], D. dood, G. tod, Icel.
     dau[eth]i, Sw. & Dan. d["o]d, Goth. dau[thorn]us; from a verb
     meaning to die. See {Die}, v. i., and cf. {Dead}.]
     1. The cessation of all vital phenomena without capability of
        resuscitation, either in animals or plants.
        [1913 Webster]
     Note: Local death is going on at all times and in all parts
           of the living body, in which individual cells and
           elements are being cast off and replaced by new; a
           process essential to life. General death is of two
           kinds; death of the body as a whole (somatic or
           systemic death), and death of the tissues. By the
           former is implied the absolute cessation of the
           functions of the brain, the circulatory and the
           respiratory organs; by the latter the entire
           disappearance of the vital actions of the ultimate
           structural constituents of the body. When death takes
           place, the body as a whole dies first, the death of the
           tissues sometimes not occurring until after a
           considerable interval. --Huxley.
           [1913 Webster]
     2. Total privation or loss; extinction; cessation; as, the
        death of memory.
        [1913 Webster]
              The death of a language can not be exactly compared
              with the death of a plant.            --J. Peile.
        [1913 Webster]
     3. Manner of dying; act or state of passing from life.
        [1913 Webster]
              A death that I abhor.                 --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
              Let me die the death of the righteous. --Num. xxiii.

     4. Cause of loss of life.

        [1913 Webster]

     Syn: {Death}, {Decease}, {Demise}, {Departure}, {Release}.
     Usage: Death applies to the termination of every form of
            existence, both animal and vegetable; the other words
            only to the human race. Decease is the term used in
            law for the removal of a human being out of life in
            the ordinary course of nature. Demise was formerly
            confined to decease of princes, but is now sometimes
            used of distinguished men in general; as, the demise
            of Mr. Pitt. Departure and release are peculiarly
            terms of Christian affection and hope. A violent death
            is not usually called a decease. Departure implies a
            friendly taking leave of life. Release implies a
            deliverance from a life of suffering or sorrow.
            [1913 Webster]
