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.

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

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.

'The two ones are same' :cross:

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

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.
