Word-y Wednesday

Today is the day when I pick a word I’ve come across and share the dictionary definition with all of you!
The word is one I either like because I’m weird that way, or one I have never heard of and/or didn’t know the meaning of.

Today’s word is…

stratification

[strat-uh-fi-key-shuh n] 
noun
1.
the act or an instance of stratifying.
2.
a stratified state or appearance

EX:The stratification of ancient ruins from eight different periods.

If you’re anything like me, then this definition was not good enough. So below is the definition of the root word, stratify set in bold type up above.

stratify
[strat-uh-fahy] 

verb (used with object), stratified,stratifying.
1.
to form or place in strata or layers.
2.
to preserve or germinate (seeds) by placing them between layers of earth.

There you have it! Two definitions to explain one word.

Aren’t we smart, now!

  1. I’m satisfied with the second one. The first one needs a deeper dunk into finding out the simple term of WHAT THE HECK DID YOU JUST SAY?
