Just came across a tumblr entry which demonstrates a novel (to me, at least) use of the word “stat”.
Which made me think of all the disparate uses of the word “stat”.
- n. abbreviated form of STATISTIC
adv. in medicine, immediately [from L. statim]</dd>
- v. in computer programming, to obtain status information of a file.
- n. in social networks, abbreviated form of STATUS UPDATE.
Random, I know.
