Couple

COUPLE, n. L. G.

1. Two of the same species or kind, and near in place, or considered together; as a couple of men; a couple or oranges. I have planted a couple of cherry trees. We cannot call a horse and an ox a couple, unless we add a generic term. Of a horse and ox feeding in a pasture, we should say, a couple of animals. Among huntsmen and soldiers, brace is used for couple; as a brace of ducks; a brace or pistols. Couple differs from pair, which implies strictly not only things of the same kind, but likeness, equality or customary association. A pair is a couple; but a couple may or may not be a pair.
2. Two things of any kind connected or linked together.
3. A male and female connected by marriage, betrothed or allied; as a married couple; a young couple.
4. That which links or connects two things together; a chain.

COUPLE, v.t.

1. To link, chain or connect one thing with another; to sew or fasten together.

Thou shalt couple the curtains with taches. Exodus 26.

2. To marry; to wed; to unite, as husband and wife.

COUPLE, v.i. To embrace, as the sexes.
