ANALOGUE (ἀνάλογος, proportionate).—That which corresponds with another, resembling in nature, structure, or function.


"By an Analogue is meant an organ in one animal having the same function as a different organ in a different animal. The difference between Homologue and Analogue may be illustrated by the wing of a bird and that of a butterfly: as the two totally differ in anatomical structure, they cannot be said to be homologous, but they are analogous in function, since they both serve for flight" (M'Cosh, Typical Forms, p. 25).

In Logic a term is analogous whose single signification applies with equal propriety to more than one object—as the leg of the table, the leg of the animal (Whately, Logic, bk. III. sec. 10).
