V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: 1. to agree or approve; 2. to work or act together cooperatively; 3. to happen at the same time--to coincide

Synonyms: agree, approve, assent, cooperate, coincide

Antonyms: disagree, diverge

Tips: Concur is a more sophisticated way of stating agreement, as in: "Do you concur? Yes, I concur (agree)." It originates from the Latin concurrere, "to meet, coincide." Concur can also mean "to happen together." Think of the verb occur--to happen--and the prefix con-, which means "together," and you have concur, which refers to multiple activities occurring together. The adjective form of concur, concurrent, means "happening at the same time or running parallel--simultaneous."

Usage Examples:

Yes, I would concur with that statement; I think you’re absolutely right. (agree)

The goal of improving education is an issue on which both parties concur. (agree)

The plan to hire a new marketing manager and to redesign the company web site were concurrent decisions intended to improve the firm's image and sales. (simultaneous) adjective

We have presented what we believe is the best project plan, and we hope you concur. (agree, approve)
