I need a word for... something that cannot be equaled. Like unequalable. But an actual word. I am completely at a loss on this one.

incomparable? unequalled?

in a creative piece or literary essay i would probably say "sans pareil".. but.. i dunno if that's the context here.

sofinch, those words don't mean that at all.

Magdalena... maybe... it's one of those things where I feel the word I want is out there... I just can't think of it.

It's a technical piece... and I'm copy editing... so I don't think I can take too many creative liberties... haha.

unparalleled, unsurpassable, unrivaled?

Hmm.

Re-word the sentence so that "cannot become equal to" fits.

That is my best suggestion.

I like unrivaled, so I'll throw that in. Thanks!

Don't see how azygous can ever mean unsurpassed. Unmatched, it means, or rather, single, without partner.
