camaraderie is a noun that describes a bond of friendship and understanding between a group of people, commonly found among those who are in the same profession or who share a common purpose. It can also refer to a feeling of belonging and familial unity within a group.
1. The camaraderie among the soccer players was evident, even when the team was losing.
2. We found an instant camaraderie when we were both waiters at the same restaurant.
3. The soldiers shared a special camaraderie after surviving their deployment.
make sure not to confuse camaraderie with other similar words such as fraternity and comradery. Fraternity often has connotations of exclusivity or elitism, and comradery usually has more militaristic connotations.
