What does interrelation mean?
Interrelation is the state of things being closely connected to each other and maybe affecting each other.
Interrelation can also refer to an instance of when things are connected or related in such a way.
The word interrelationship can be used to mean both of these things.
The elements in an interrelation can be described with the adjective interrelated.
The verb interrelate means to be connected in this way or to cause things to become connected in this way.
Interrelate, interrelated, and interrelation are used in situations in which two or more elements strongly influence each other or are closely linked to each other. For example, a study on unemployment and crime in a particular area may conclude that there is an interrelation between them. Saying that there is an interrelation between two things does not necessarily mean that one causes the other or that they cause each other (though in some cases this may be true).
Such words are typically used in the discussion of complex topics, such as economics, science, and politics. These often involve situations in which multiple things are happening at the same time. An interrelation can involve things impact each other or work together to affect something else.
For example, the economy is affected by the interrelation of many factors, such as employment, interest rates, and inflation.
It is more common to describe things as interrelated or to say that they interrelate than to use the word interrelation to refer to the relationship between them.
Example: The strength of the hurricane depends on the interrelation of several factors, including temperature and air pressure.
Where does interrelation come from?
The first records of the word interrelation come from the mid-1800s. (The adjective interrelated is recorded earlier, in the 1820s.) Interrelation is made from the prefix inter–, meaning “between” or “reciprocally,” and relation, meaning “an association or connection.”
Interrelation usually implies a more complex relationship than relation. When things are related to each other, they are connected in some way. But when they are said to be interrelated, this usually means that the connections are complicated and perhaps not fully understood.
