Analogy is either the cognitive process of transferring information from a particular subject ( the analogue or source ) to another particular subject ( the target ), or a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process .

In a narrower sense, analogy is an inference or an argument from a particular to another particular, as opposed to deduction, induction, and abduction, where at least one of the premises or the conclusion is general.

The word analogy can also refer to the relation between the source and the target themselves, which is often, though not necessarily, a similarity, as in the biological notion of analogy.

In mathematics and basketball  (external link) statistics, some types of analogies can have a precise mathematical formulation through the concept of isomorphism .
