La palabra del día: Emparejar

Verb. This term has several meaning an all of them somehow related. I am sure it must have the same root of par (pair) and if you check in the dictionary you will see it translated as ‘to match, to pair’. In Economics, emparejar means ‘to bring something on a level with something else’. E.g.: Ya hay 170 empresas comprometidas para emparejar los sueldos en Chile: There are already 170 companies committed to pair up salaries in Chile (between genders).
The noun is el emparejamiento and the adjective is parejo/a/s: equal. A noun with the same root is pareja: partner (in life, board games, cards, etc.) dc
