For the sake of certain Silians, I'm pointing out the difference between the above two words since they sound similar and tend to be abused or interchanged unconsciously.

The word Commensurate is used to donate some related form of value or appropriateness for something whilst Commiserate is used to show sympathy. See the definitions below:

Definition of COMMENSURATE in English:


ADJECTIVE

Corresponding in size or degree; in proportion.

‘salary will be commensurate with age and experience’

‘such heavy responsibility must receive commensurate reward’


COMMISERATE

verb

express or feel sympathy or pity; sympathize.

"she went over to commiserate with Rose on her unfortunate circumstances"

ARCHAIC

feel or express pity for (someone).

"she did not exult in her rival's fall, but, on the contrary, commiserated her"

Learn from it.

Nuff Respect
