Conflate is a verb that means ‘to bring together’ or ‘fuse.’

Our word of the day comes from the Latin word conflare (con FLARE ay) which means ‘to blow together.’ When we conflate two things, we usually combine them, but sometimes we confuse them. For example: Please don’t conflate my request for a demand. I would never think of requiring you to order my sandwiches on your time.
