- Talk confidentially or conspiratorially.
“When you’re alone, call me so I can collogue with you.”
“The siblings collogued after dinner to discuss their mother’s surprise birthday party.”
“It might have seemed like I was colloguing with her, but I want to share all the information I learned in the meeting.”
Latin, early 17th century
Why this word?
If you have a secret plan, you might collogue with your conspirators. To collogue means “to speak confidentially.” In the past, there was another usage for flattering speech, but that got pushed out in favor of the “sharing secrets” definition.
