#WOTD: On a par with

‘On a par with’ is often written as ‘on par with’, without ‘a.’ But, both writing styles have the same meaning: equals to or similar to someone or something.

Now, let’s see how the phrase is used in sentences. Example:

  • The hospitality of this home-stay is on a par with a hotel’s.
  • I think women should be on a par with men in having the same opportunities and gaining appreciation in one’s workplace.

Additional example from a fella on Twitter:

We are on a par with others in front of God. – @fijarhajianto
