concord (noun) good understanding; harmony; agreement; (grammar) words in a phrase having the same number, gender, etc..
When two persons, two groups of people, or two nations live in peace and have understanding with each other, they live in concord. We all look forward to the nations of the world living in concord, that is, all nations living in perfect peace, having good relations with one another and good understanding. Concord thus means harmony. When the words in a phrase or a clause, for example, a word and its subject are the same in number, person, and gender, they are in concord. In most cases, in English, the concord between the subject and the verb is important. That is, the subject and the verb should agree with each other in number and person.
- The concord in which Andrew and Sam live together under the same roof is really surprising, especially in these days of nuclear families, where understanding is rare even between unmarried brothers.
- Every great leader of the world appeals to the nations to live in concord and thus to ensure a world of peace and harmony.
