About Isochronous

This word comes from the modern Latin “isochronus” by way of the Greek “isokhronos,” meaning “equal in age or time.” “Iso-” means “equal,” “khronos” means “time.”

Did you Know?

”Isochronous” sounds a little like “asynchronous,” but don’t confuse them — the latter means “not simultaneous or current in time.”
