Definition of the noun agglutination

What does agglutination mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: agglutinations

  1. a clumping of bacteria or red cells when held together by antibodies (agglutinins)
  2. the building of words from component morphemes that retain their form and meaning in the process of combining
  3. the coalescing of small particles that are suspended in solution; these larger masses are then (usually) precipitated

Alternative definition of the noun agglutination

noun

  1. The act of uniting by glue or other tenacious substance; the state of being thus united; adhesion of parts.
  2. Combination in which root words are united with little or no change of form or loss of meaning. See agglutinative.
  3. The clumping together of red blood cells or bacteria, usually in response to a particular antibody.

Explanation

  1. Agglutination is a process in linguistic morphology derivation in which complex words are formed by stringing together morphemes, each with a single grammatical or semantic meaning. Languages that use agglutination widely are called agglutinative languages. An example of such a language is Turkish, where for example, the word evlerinizden, or "from your houses," consists of the morphemes, ev-ler-iniz-den with the meanings house-plural-your-from.
  2. Agglutination is the clumping of particles. The word agglutination comes from the Latin agglutinare, meaning "to glue." Agglutination occurs if an antigen is mixed with its corresponding antibody called isoagglutinin. This is commonly used term in blood grouping.
  3. agglutination is a gene group, gene ontology group.
