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.

    Did you check any synonyms in a dictionary? Anyway I agree you can't leave out the second "corresponding" because then you lose the relationship it indicates. How about "related? The basic question in your title should be answered using a dictionary, or if done pls. share your findings and concern.

    @user3169 I came up with "matching" which seems suitable, I answer the question myself.

    @user3169 by a suggestion from the other site "respective" is best word for my purpose. By the way, they counted my question off-topic there too.

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.
