### Noun

(wikipedia analysis)
• (countable) Decomposition into components in order to study (a complex thing, concept, theory...).
• * {{quote-magazine, year=2013, month=July-August, author= Philip J. Bushnell
• , title= Solvents, Ethanol, Car Crashes & Tolerance, magazine=(American Scientist) , passage=Surprisingly, this analysis revealed that acute exposure to solvent vapors at concentrations below those associated with long-term effects appears to increase the risk of a fatal automobile accident. Furthermore, this increase in risk is comparable to the risk of death from leukemia after long-term exposure to benzene, another solvent, which has the well-known property of causing this type of cancer.}}
• (countable) The result of such a process.
• *
• Thus, in a sequence such as [French English teacher''], since ''English'' is closer to
the Head Noun ''teacher'', it must be a Complement; and since ''French'' is further
away from ''teacher'', it must be an Attribute. Hence, we correctly predict that
the only possible interpretation for [''a French English teacher
] is ‘a person who
teaches English who is French?. So our analysis not only has semantic plausi-
bility; but in addition it has independent syntactic support.
• (uncountable, mathematics) The mathematical study of functions, sequences, series, limits, derivatives and integrals.
• (countable, logic) Proof by deduction from known truths.
• (countable, chemistry) The process of breaking down a substance into its constituent parts, or the result of this process.
