Definition
a person who belongs to the same group as you — such as a fellow countryman, colleague at work, or friend
  • Their own compatriots—save those previously known or properly accredited—they treated with an even more pronounced disdain; so that, unless they ran across a Chivers, a Dagonet or a Mingott, their months abroad were spent in an unbroken tete-a-tete.
