Homologate is a verb that means to sanction or approve of.
Our word of the day combines the Greek Homos (HO mose) which means “alike” with the Greek word for “word” logos (LOW gose). Together they give us a word that refers to bringing words into agreement.
As the league’s commissioner, my job consisted mostly of homologating the deals brokered by the owners of the teams. It wasn’t always easy because sometimes the deals were were illegal, so I couldn’t approve of them.
