SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

contiguous (adj) adjacent.

When two buildings, two areas, etc., are contiguous to each other, they are adjacent to each other, they abut each other. The US and Canada, are contiguous to each other. That is, they lie side by side divided by a common border. So are France and Germany, as they lie alongside each other for much of their border. Contiguous houses are houses separated by a common wall.

  • Peace is not so common between contiguous countries. Their border being common, it is always a matter of dispute between the two countries.
  • The contiguous pair of houses, a common wall separating them, is owned by twins, and they are exactly alike, and as indistinguishable as the twins themselves.
