Effie, are you sure about this? Itīs hardly a regular/common word (pseudo-Latin gerund, analogous with īgraduandī...?). How/where would you use it?

More to the point: when Adalberto (īnapsterī - the japester: check some of his earlier posts - this is his 4th account, I believe) comes up with questions like these, he very rarely gives the context. Heīs not really serious - heīs just saying īhello, remember me?ī.

Effie īs definition is from Wiki but when I checked OED as the reference it says word unknown so either napster misspelled it or Alex has made a good point

  It`s a very formal word used by functionaries when discussing school and university Ss.
