Realization of something concrete

Reply Sat 6 Apr, 2013 03:55 pm
I am referring to the meaning of the word "realize" as in "to make real" (see, e.g., the first meaning given at http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/realize). I want to know which types of things can be realized - only concepts indicating that something is expected or wished for, like hope, ambition, a plan, a dream, or a goal; or is it also correct to say that something like a house, an event, or a brochure was realized?

To realize is to become aware.

I don't know why you are using "real." They are not the same word.

It is not as common to use the word realized for concrete objects, but it is correct to use the word in such a way.
To "realize" something in that context is simply to make something real.
You might also use the term "actualize".

The common use of the word tends to be synonymous with "understand" or "become aware".
