Abler-Minded: Incrementalism

Email

We’re probably all familiar with the word “increment.”

As a noun, it means an increase in the size or amount of something ... and is accepted to also include a series of small, often regular or planned increases.

Now, if you add “al” to the noun, you get an adjective that really means those regular or planned — incremental — increases. Going one step further, the suffix “ism” denotes a movement, doctrine or system of belief.
