English - Noun

THOROUGHFARE (_plural_ THOROUGHFARES) * (now rare except in phrases) A passage; a way through. * 1961, Frederic Morton, _The Rothschilds_, p. 173: “I ask you,” cried Lloyd George in 1909. “Are we to have all the ways of reform, financial and social, blocked simply by a notice board: ‘No THOROUGHFARE. By order of Nathanial Rothschild’?” * 1974, John Le Carré, _Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy_: In the scullery Smiley had once more checked his THOROUGHFARE, shoved some deck-chairs aside, and pinned a string to the mangle to guide him because he saw badly in the dark. * A road open at both ends or connecting one area with another; a highway or main street. * 1841, Charles Dickens, _Barnaby Rudge_: a dozen houses were quickly blazing, including those of Sir John Fielding and two other justices, and four in Holborn – one of the greatest THOROUGHFARES in London – which were all burning at the same time, and burned until they went out of themselves, for the people cut the engine hose, and would not suffer the firemen to play upon the flames. * 2011, Stephen Phelan, _The Guardian_, 1 Jul 2011: Local art is now a viable industry, and hundreds of islanders make a living in it. The THOROUGHFARE of Oneroa village is lined with shops and galleries full of their work. * (obsolete) The act of going through; passage; travel, transit. * 1667, John Milton, _Paradise Lost_, Book X: and made one realm, / Hell and this world, one realm, one continent / Of easy THOROUGH-FARE. * An unobstructed waterway allowing passage for ships.
