V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: 1. planned or carried out by two or more people or groups working together for the same goal; 2. done in a serious and determined manner

Synonyms: agreeing, harmonious, unified, allied, cooperative

Antonyms: disjointed, uncooperative

Tips: One of the mistakes people often make with the word concerted is that they think it relates to concentration--it will take a concerted effort, meaning you will need to focus. This is incorrect; a concerted effort means it will require a group effort. Concerted can also describe a serious and determined effort as well, but does not refer concentration. See also: concert.

Usage Examples:

Some concerted negotiations between the two companies could result in an agreement benefiting both sides. (cooperative)

In order for this project to succeed, it will take a concerted effort by everyone. (unified, cooperative, determined)

There was a concerted action to raise more money amongst all the activists working for their cause. (unified, allied)

Without a concerted effort by all of us, this house will never get decorated in time for the party. (cooperative)
