I have the following sentence:

If the context relies on a single anchor (Self, Parent, Following), the nodes within the corresponding scope are treated with regard to this context and a corresponding node is created in the output XML file.

In general, many times I need the word "corresponding" and don't know much synonyms or equivalent structures for the sentence.

I looked it up in thesaurus.com but none of the synonyms are as strong as the "corresponding" and can be used in its place.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about writing style. Perhaps Writers.SE would be a better fit?

    Take out the second 'corresponding' with no replacement added in. The sentence will clean up well.

  • @plafort then it doesn't imply that the node is created according to the attributes of the "context". for example they have the same name

  • It would take a big leap of logic for the reader to take any other meaning from it.

  • @Flimzy I would check the website, but I am a learner. I changed it to a general question about the equivalents of "corresponding". If there are any, one can tell me here.

I found few words as strong as "corresponding", the best word I found is "respective". the words are

  • associated
  • related
  • respective
  • matching

However, in my case, "related" or "matching" works:

If the context relies on a single anchor (Self, Parent, Following), the nodes within the related scope are treated with regard to this context and a corresponding node is created in the output XML file.
