congruent

adjective

Definition: 1. consistent in agreement; 2. having the same geometric shape and size

Synonyms: compatible, congruous, corresponding, parallel, harmonious

Antonyms: incongruent, incongruous

Tips: Congruent is often used in the formulation "congruent with." Congruent is derived from the Latin congruere, "to meet together," which reflects its meaning of agreement or consonance. Use congruent as a sophisticated way of saying "in line with," "parallel," "compatible," and "consistent."
