What is another word for response?

A response is a reply or an answer—something said or done after someone else has said or done something.

Like response, reply and answer can be used in the context of verbal responses (such as in speech or writing) as well as actions. The word acknowledgement refers to a response that simply acknowledges an initial message or action (as opposed to one that consists of new information or an action on the part of the one responding).

Some responses come in the form of feedback.

A reply to a comment—especially a quick and witty reply—is sometimes called a comeback, retort, rejoinder, or riposte.

A response to an invitation is popularly called an RSVP, an abbreviation of the French phrase répondez s’il vous plaît, meaning “please respond.”

In military and sports contexts, the word response is sometimes used as a general way of referring to a counterattack or counterstroke.
