adjunction junction, what’s your function?

(Teaching college kids for less than minimum wage?)

Sorry, actually adjunction (n.) has nothing to do with being the underpaid backbone of higher education, but rather means “The action or process of adding something to something else; the joining or uniting of one thing or person with another.”  (From today’s OED WOTD)

Trying to think how you’d use that in a sentence. Erm, here’s the sentence OED helpfully offers:

“In nutrition, there muste fyrste be adjunction, and then agglutination.”

Right, OK, totally clear now.
