Often, nouns have a corresponding verb form. For example, analysis / analyze.
According to Oxford Dictionary, the noun "harmony" can mean:
- the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce a pleasing effect
- the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole
- the state of being in agreement or concord
I'm interested in the verb form of this noun "harmony" carrying its 3rd meaning (i.e. the state of being in agreement or concord). An example sentence: "In this remote place, man were in perfect harmony with nature."
However, according to Oxford Dictionary, the verb form "harmonize" means:
- add notes to (a melody) to produce harmony
- produce a pleasing visual combination
- make consistent or compatible
My question is, does the 3rd meaning of the verb "harmonize" actually correspond accurately to the 3rd meaning of the noun "harmony", or is there a better word in verb form that corresponds and carries the 3rd meaning of the noun "harmony".
For example, would it sound right and comprehensible to say, "In this remote place, man were perfectly harmonizing/harmonized with nature."
