English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. coincidence

    Analogy is specifically a resemblance of relations; a resemblance that may be reasoned from, so that from the likeness in certain respects we may infer that other and perhaps deeper relations exist. Affinity is a mutual attraction with or without seeming likeness; as, the affinity of iron for oxygen. Coincidence is complete agreement in some one or more respects; there may be a coincidence in time of most dissimilar events. Parity of reasoning is said of an argument equally conclusive on subjects not strictly analogous. Similitude is a rhetorical comparison of one thing to another with which it has some points in common. Resemblance and similarity are external or superficial, and may involve no deeper relation; as, the resemblance of a cloud to a distant mountain. Compare ALLEGORY.

    Synonyms:
    affinity, analogy, comparison, likeness, parity, proportion, relation, resemblance, semblance, similarity, simile, similitude

    Antonyms:
    disagreement, disproportion, dissimilarity, incongruity, unlikeness
