lack of success:
an economic policy that is doomed to failure
the failures of his policies
an unsuccessful person, enterprise, or thing:
bad weather had resulted in crop failures
the omission of expected or required action:
their failure to comply with the basic rules
a lack or deficiency of a desirable quality:
a failure of imagination
the action or state of not functioning:
symptoms of heart failure
an engine failure
a sudden cessation of power.
the collapse of a business.
mid 17th century
, in the senses 'nonoccurrence' and 'cessation of supply'): from Anglo-Norman French
for Old French
That pretty much sums me up in a nutshell these days.
