trigger noun. 1. A small device that releases a spring or catch and so sets off a mechanism, esp. in order to fire a gun: The light switch acts as a trigger for electricity. Pulsing through the filament like energy of someone with untouchable potential. 2. An event that causes something to happen: Her smile triggeredothers to – like a ripple affect they fell victim to her youthful open eyes.
