accretion

listen to the pronunciation of accretion
Английский Язык - Английский Язык
concretion; coherence of separate particles; as, the accretion of particles so as to form a solid mass
The adhering of property to something else, by which the owner of one thing becomes possessed of a right to another; generally, gain of land by the washing up of sand or sail from the sea or a river, or by a gradual recession of the water from the usual watermark
Gain to an heir or legatee, failure of a coheir to the same succession, or a co-legatee of the same thing, to take his share
A growing together of parts naturally separate, as of the fingers or toes
The act of increasing by natural growth; especially the increase of organic bodies by the internal accession of parts; organic growth
The act of increasing, or the matter added, by an accession of parts externally; an extraneous addition; as, an accretion of earth

To strip off all the subordinate parts of his as a later accretion - George Cornewall Lewis.

The gradual and imperceptible addition to land by alluvial deposits of soil through natural causes, such as shoreline movement caused by streams or rivers
{n} a growing to another, an increase
The buildup of land from natural forces such as wind or water
An accumulation of dust and gas into larger bodies such as stars, planets and moons, or as discs around existing bodies
The process by where dust and gas accumulated into larger bodies such as stars and planets
The gradual addition to the shore or bank of a waterway The land generally becomes the property of the owner of the shore or bank, except where statutes specify otherwise
(biology) growth by addition as by the adhesion of parts or particles
Gradual additions to land by deposits of sand or soil by bordering waters through natural causes
The growth in size of a parcel of land as a result of the actions of such natural forces as wind or water
The gradual addition to the shore or bank of a waterway by deposits of sand or silt
The gradual and imperceptible addition of land by alluvial deposits of soil through natural causes, such as shoreline movement caused by streams or rivers This added land upon a bank or stream, navigable or not, becomes the property of the riparian or littoral owner, and it also becomes subject to any existing mortgages
The slow addition to land by deposition of water-borne sediment An increase in land along the shores of a body of water, as by Alluvial deposit Accretion and alluvion are often used synonymously
An addition to land from natural causes as, for example, from gradual action of the ocean or river waters
an increase of land along the shores of a body of water, as by deposition of wind or water carried materials
(law) an increase in a beneficiary's share in an estate (as when a co-beneficiary dies or fails to meet some condition or rejects the inheritance)
Accumulation of dust and gas onto larger bodies such as stars, planets, and moons
(From Latin accretio: "increase ") The slow and imperceptible addition of land to a state's territory
An increase in land area because of sediments deposited by flowing water, especially along shores If accretion keeps pace with sea level, then relative sea level rise has little impact on coastal wetlands If sea level rises faster than organic matter and mineral deposits can accumulate (or if sediments are trapped behind dams) coastal land can be inundated, especially during spring tides when tides are highest, for example at full moon
(astronomy) the formation of a celestial object by the effect of gravity pulling together surrounding objects and gases
Accumulation of dust and gas into larger bodies
(geology) an increase in land resulting from alluvial deposits or water-borne sediment
The increase or accumulation of land by natural causes, as out of a lake or river
The addition to land through natural forces like wind or water
The accumulation of (beach) sediment, deposited by natural fluid flow processes
In portfolio accounting, a straight-line accumulation of capital gains on discount bond in anticipation of receipt of par at maturity
something contributing to growth or increase; "he scraped away the accretions of paint"; "the central city surrounded by recent accretions"
The process in which small rocks, dust particles or gases accumulate under the influence of gravity
an increase by natural growth or addition
An addition to land from natural causes The slow buildup of lands caused by natural forces such as the ocean, rivers, wind or flow of water
An addition to land from natural causes as for example from gradual action of the ocean or river waters
The imperceptible and gradual addition to land by the slow action of water Heavy rain, river or ocean action would have this effect by either washing up sand or soil or by a permanent retreat of the high water mark The washing up of soil is often called avulsion although the latter term is but a variety of accretion
increase or extension of land by natural forces, such as waves, currents, and winds; a build-up of sand
The act of increasing by natural growth; esp. the increase of organic bodies by the internal accession of parts; organic growth
the increase of organic bodies by the internal accession of parts; organic growth
A growing together of parts naturally separate, as of the fingers toes
(law) an increase in a beneficiary's share in an estate (as when a co-beneficiary dies or fails to meet some condition or rejects the inheritance) an increase by natural growth or addition (geology) an increase in land resulting from alluvial deposits or water-borne sediment (biology) growth by addition as by the adhesion of parts or particles (astronomy) the formation of a celestial object by the effect of gravity pulling together surrounding objects and gases something contributing to growth or increase; "he scraped away the accretions of paint"; "the central city surrounded by recent accretions
The act of increasing by natural growth; esp
{i} expansion or increase due to gradual build-up or additions; growth, increase in size; added part, addition; growing together or joining of separate parts
Accretion is the process of new layers or parts being added to something so that it increases in size. A coral reef is built by the accretion of tiny, identical organisms
Gain to an heir or legatee, failure of a coheir to the same succession, or a co- legatee of the same thing, to take his share
An accretion is an addition to something, usually one that has been added over a period of time. The script has been gathering editorial accretions for years
