Adaequatio

Thomas defines truth as adequation of thought and thing. “Adequation” means “making equal” and “equal” is the sameness of two things differing in their mode of existence, with the added note that one is being compared to the other (sometimes truth is called adaequatio vel comparatio.) 

Truth has two adequations, one between subject and predicate in its composition and division and another that compares the object as known to the object as object.
