intransitive verb-·twined′, -·twin′ing
verben·twined, en·twin·ing, en·twines
(third-person singular simple present entwines, present participle entwining, simple past and past participle entwined)
Particularly used in attributive form entwined.
Often used interchangeably with intertwine, with minor usage distinctions. In symmetric sense of two things twining around each other, such as the branches of two trees, narrower intertwine may be preferred, but these are not strictly distinguished. In asymmetric sense of one thing twined in or around another – rather than mutually – such as a vine twined around a tree (but tree not twined around the vine), entwined is preferred.
en- + twine
