an analogous term is one that is applied to unlike, but related things, so thet it is used in a meaning that is partly the same and partly different. there is always some relation between such things, entitling the mind to designate them by same term, hence they are not equivocal. due to their partial unlikeness, however, the term is not used in a strictly univocal sense; hence they are not univocal. an analogous term therefore, designated related things in such a manner that it applies primarily to one thing and then secondarily to other things.
