    the differences between 'same' and 'analogous' as adjectives

    Can anyone here please tell me the differences between 'same' and 'analogous' as adjectives.
    The sentence 'The two ones are same' can be replaced by 'The two ones are analogous' ?
    Thank you !

    The same - not different, unchanged, just mentioned previous;
    -people are the same everywhere,
    -I would do the same for you.

    Analogous - similar, parallel, corresponding in function or in some respect to something else.
    S.M.

    Oh no, I mean "same" as an adjective not a noun that you suggested
    Thanks !

    Re: the differences between 'same' and 'analogous' as adjectives

    Sorry, I'm not an expert in grammar. I thought that 'the same' is an adjective and 'same' is the same but colloquially.
    So, we both need a teacher.
    S.M.

    'The two ones are same'

    You would have to use the same here, but it's not a good sentence- what's the context?

    Re: the differences between 'same' and 'analogous' as adjectives

    You are welcome to answer so don't worried about some trifles. It's me who must to say thanks.
    Your explanation of the word 'analogous' is so good. I have a complement. 'analogous' is usually used with 'to' followed by. So I think an example for this may be 'Two ones are analogous to me'
    We are learners so can't be unable to take some mistakes.
    Thank you !

    You mean if I give out an appropriate context, I can use the adjective 'same' standing alone without 'the' before?
    I think I can't give out any context. By refering some other threads of similar title, I have had a rather good answer for this problem. Thank you very much.
