      Could it be "Concomitant"?

        You mean as in the following quote by The Parson: "I always say that my west window has all the exuberance of Chaucer, without, happily, any of the concomitant crudities of his period." (a brilliant line from a film chock full of great quotable lines)? It means naturally accompanying, as in Wimbledon tennis and its' concomitant rain showers.

            I do recall another usage, as it happens. On David Nobbs excellent 1970s sitcom I Didn't Know You Cared Liz Smith would regularly come out with the catchphrase “It's not conducive, our Mort, it's not concomitant,”

              Ah, but apropos (as Liz would say) that was a use of malapropism for comic effect!
