Hello, I need some help. This is the sentence I need help with: The term "American Dream" often connotes ____ ideas — those of wealth, material possessions and power.

I'm trying to say that, although the ideas maybe be different, they all fall under wealth, possessions and power. I don't believe that "synonymous" really implies what I said in the previous sentence and neither does "analgous." I believe "relating" would probably work the best, but I've used the word about three times in my essay already and would not like to repeat it. "Homologous" sounds like it could work from definition I've read, but I'm not entirely sure.

Thank you if you can help. :)

    Welcome to the forum.

    I hope I can help. If not, someone else will come along.

    How about cognate? ("related in nature")

    (If you click on the word, it will take you to the definition in the Word Reference Dictionary that you can also access at the top of the page.)

    Thank you. That is the perfect word.

    You know, that is the great thing about English — there's a word for everything! ;)
