(pronounced koh-eh-LEHS)

This verb means to fuse, unite or grow together into a whole. Along that same vein, it can be used to mean to come together and join forces for a common cause.

Example: Towards the end of three-year multifamily development project, the two design teams — one of which had been working on the public/service areas and the other on the private/residence spaces — coalesced into a single project team.
