Definition of Analogue


  1. That which is analogous to, or corresponds with, some other thing.
  2. A word in one language corresponding with one in another; an analogous term; as, the Latin "pater" is the analogue of the English "father."
  3. An organ which is equivalent in its functions to a different organ in another species or group, or even in the same group; as, the gill of a fish is the analogue of a lung in a quadruped, although the two are not of like structural relations.
  4. A species in one genus or group having its characters parallel, one by one, with those of another group.
  5. A species or genus in one country closely related to a species of the same genus, or a genus of the same group, in another: such species are often called representative species, and such genera, representative genera.

Noam Chomsky

Adam Savage

I'm obsessed with things that are distinctly analogue.
J. J. Abrams

In 'Open City,' there is a passage that any reader of Joyce will immediately recognise as a very close, formal analogue of one the stories in 'Dubliners.' That is because a novel is also a literary conversation.
Teju Cole
