    Here are some of uses, actually most of them:

    noun: official permission or approval (Example: "Authority for the program was renewed several times")

    noun: the power or right to give orders or make decisions (Example: "He has the authority to issue warrants")

    noun: an authoritative written work (Example: "This book is the final authority on the life of Milton")

    noun: an expert whose views are taken as definitive (Example: "He is an authority on corporate law")

    noun: (usually plural) persons who exercise (administrative) control over others

    noun: freedom from doubt; belief in yourself and your abilities (Example: "She spoke with authority")

    noun: an administrative unit of government (Example: "Tennessee Valley Authority")
