While the word 'bisexual' was technically correct, I would only slowly come to use it to refer to myself in part because of the derisive connotations. But, in addition, it would seem to me woefully inadequate and impressionistically inaccurate.

WHAT DOES ADDITION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

addition

Addition

Addition is a mathematical operation that represents the total amount of objects together in a collection. It is signified by the plus sign. For example, in the picture on the right, there are 3 + 2 apples—meaning three apples and two apples together, which is a total of 5 apples. Therefore, 3 + 2 = 5. Besides counting fruits, addition can also represent combining other physical and abstract quantities using different kinds of objects: negative numbers, fractions, irrational numbers, vectors, decimals, functions, matrices and more. Addition follows several important patterns. It is commutative, meaning that order does not matter, and it is associative, meaning that when one adds more than two numbers, the order in which addition is performed does not matter. Repeated addition of 1 is the same as counting; addition of 0 does not change a number. Addition also obeys predictable rules concerning related operations such as subtraction and multiplication. All of these rules can be proven, starting with the addition of natural numbers and generalizing up through the real numbers and beyond. General binary operations that continue these patterns are studied in abstract algebra.

Definition of addition in the English dictionary

The first definition of addition in the dictionary is the act, process, or result of adding. Other definition of addition is a person or thing that is added or acquired. Addition is also a mathematical operation in which the sum of two numbers or quantities is calculated. Usually indicated by the symbol +.
