Daniela’s Answer

Hi James,


A cohort is a group of people who are around the same age, like a cohort of college students who have similar experiences and concerns.


The word cohort was originally used to describe a military unit in ancient Rome. You can see how this retains traces of the word’s origins: cohorts are bound together by similar circumstances just like a group of soldiers in a military unit. Some language purists insist that the word only describe a group, such as a cohort of accountants, but it can also refer to companions or supporters, such as “Susie and her cohorts.”

I hope this can solve your question.
