Extended in the same direction, and in all parts equally distant; as, parallel lines; parallel planes.
Having the same direction or tendency; running side by side; being in accordance (with); tending to the same result; -- used with to and with.
A line which, throughout its whole extent, is equidistant from another line; a parallel line, a parallel plane, etc.
Direction conformable to that of another line,
Arrangement of transmitted data so that all bits in a byte travel altogether along a parallel electronic path. In serial mode, each bit follows the preceding bit in a single electronic path.

Many things happening at once.
Loosely speaking, parallel implies a situation where multiple things can be done simultaneously, like having multiple check-out lines each serving people all at once. Parallel connections are by their nature more expensive than serial ones, but usually faster. Also, in a related use of the word, often multitasking computers are said to be capable of running multiple programs in parallel.
A comparison made; elaborate tracing of similarity; as, Johnson's parallel between Dryden and Pope.
That arrangement of an electrical system in which all positive poles, electrodes, terminals, etc., are joined to one conductor, and all negative poles, etc., to another conductor; -- called also multiple. Opposed to series.
two lines or surfaces that never intersect. Also, for circuit elements, elements that are connected so that they have the same electrostatic potential difference across them.
Means that two lines will never intersect even if they go on forever, like these
To place or set so as to be parallel; to place so as to be parallel to, or to conform in direction with, something else.
Fig.: To make to conform to something else in character, motive, aim, or the like.

something having the property of being analogous to something else
Continuing a resemblance through many particulars; applicable in all essential parts; like; similar; as, a parallel case; a parallel passage.
Conformity continued through many particulars or in all essential points; resemblance; similarity.
Anything equal to, or resembling, another in all essential particulars; a counterpart.
1) The folding frame that forms the base of a readily portable platform. 2) The opposite of SERIES when referring to wiring two loads into one outlet.
refers to a motor winding configuration; motors that are wired in parallel produce more torque at high speeds but less torque at low speeds than motors wired in series.
A wiring technique where multiple devices are wired together to increase current but voltage remains the same.
