I'm wondering if there is a single-word adjective for such ideas.

  • Hi - and welcome to the exchange! Could you provide a little more context so we can better assist? I'm thinking the word you seek is "concur" but it's hard to say without the rest of the sentence/paragraph. – Elby Cloud Apr 15 at 12:15

    Surely the answer is: anyone who agrees with my opinion is "correct" :-) – James Random Apr 15 at 12:31

A single-word adjective is concordant:

// All three tests have concordant results.
// the movie's opening-weekend gross was fairly concordant with box-office returns for that genre

So, for example:

I have an opinion. Your idea is concordant.
That is a concordant idea.

Note that consonant is listed as a synonym. Personally, I feel it has more of an association with sound (consonant letters) than with ideas in agreement. Using it in this context wouldn't seem as natural to me. (But it might to you.) Also, agreeing doesn't have the right construction to sound right as an adjective.

  • Maybe also "consistent" – James Random Apr 15 at 15:35
  • @JamesRandom I had thought of harmonious at first too, but neither seemed exactly right. (Although they would be fine in the right context.) – Jason Bassford Apr 15 at 15:37

    I think "concordant" is what I was searching for - thanks. Indeed, your thinking about "consonant" is concordant with mine. – user1476044 Apr 15 at 19:30

Not a single word, but the most concise term I can think of is in agreement:

1: agreeing : concurring

Everyone seems to be in agreement about/on the need for reform, but there is much disagreement about how to achieve it.


For example:

I like that idea; it is in agreement with my opinion


I would recommend APPROPRIATE .

According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary


: especially suitable or compatible 


//an appropriate response

There's an example:

An appropriate idea about the analyst, then, would be an idea warranted by the analyst's actual behavior.
