Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Adventitious has various meanings in various disciplines and in general usage. Adventitious is from the Latin root advenire, meaning "to come or be superadded" and in correct English the meanings tend to have connections to accidental or casual occurrence. ..".of the nature of an addition from without; supervenient, accidental, casual. Commonly persons ignorant of the correct definition and relevance of such terms speak of "random" where what they really mean is "adventitious" or perhaps "accidental." Essentially such incorrect terminology is a howler; it differs from malapropism only in that there is no confusion of the sound of the words.show more
