A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Lying under or below something.
From Latin subjacent- (stem of subjacens), present participle of subjacere (to underlie), from sub- (under) + jacere (to lie). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ye- (to throw), that is also the source of jettison, eject, project, reject, object, subject, adjective, joist, and ejaculate.
"Is surface-derived water, circulating deeply and heated passively
by subjacent magma intrusions, sufficient to leach metals from
solid rocks and make an ore deposit?"
As far as I'm concerned, 'whom' is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler. -Calvin Trillin, writer (b. 1935)
