      Juxtaposed also has a use distinct from those of other words here. While it can function like neighbouring or adjoining, it most specifically suggests incongruous elements brought into close contact; the word often carries connotations of conflict, abruptness or placement, or surprise at contrasts: a city in which ancient and modern features are strikingly juxtaposed; opposing forces that found themselves juxtaposed the next morning on either side of the broad river.
