Cohese cohesion.

Is cohese a word?

As in, "chalk and cheese do not cohese"

I think the answer is no, but it should be yes. I am aware that it should be "are not cohesive" but I used cohese in conversation today and it had a wonderful ring to it so I don't care.

Cohese coheses. accept it.


  1. I too have used the word "cohese" many times, and it makes allot of since. I'm pretty sure the English language just accidentally left it out or got lost in translation. Silly English.

  2. The verb you want is "cohere".

  3. The verb you want is "cohere".

  4. I don't think there is a verb. You need to use "lack cohesion".
