# Inflection Sentence Examples

- We live at a defining moment for humanity, as the compounding effects of technology and civilization reach an
**inflection**point. - The principal thing that is lacking is sentence accent and variety in the
**inflection**of phrases. - The Klong is rhythmic, the play being on the
**inflection**of the voice in speaking the words, which**inflection**is arranged according to fixed schemes; the rhyme, if it can so be called, being sought not in the similarity of syllables but of intonation. - It is usual to distinguish between the general coast-line measured from point to point of the headlands disregarding the smaller bays, and the detailed coast-line which takes account of every
**inflection**shown by the map employed, and follows up river entrances to the point where tidal action ceases. - The double tan larities - gent or
**inflection**; gent; arising as follows: 1. - Indic.) is closely parallel to the
**inflection**of the same person in Sanskrit and of quite unique linguistic interest. - The node or cusp is not an
**inflection**, and we have thus for a node a diminution 6, and for a cusp a diminution 8, in the number of the intersections; hence for a curve with 6 nodes and cusps, the diminution is = 66+8K, and the number ofis c= 3m(m - 2) - 66 - 8K.**inflections** - Xxviii., 1844); in the latter of these the points of
**inflection**are obtained as the intersections of the curve u = o with the Hessian, or curve A = o, where A is the determinant formed with the second derived functions of u. - The whole theory of the
of a cubic curve is discussed in a very interesting manner by means of the canonical form of the equation x +y +z +6lxyz= o; and in particular a proof is given of Plucker's theorem that the nine points of**inflections****inflection**of a cubic curve lie by threes in twelve lines. - It will readily be understood how the like considerations apply to other cases, - for instance, if the line is a tangent at an
**inflection**, passes through a crunode, or touches one of the branches of a crunode, &c.; thus, if the line S2 passes through a crunode we have pairs of hyperbolic legs belonging to two parallel asymptotes. - Thirdly, the three intersections by the line infinity may be coincident and real; or say we have a threefold point: this may be an
**inflection**, a crunode or a cusp, that is, the line infinity may be a tangent at an**inflection**, and we have the divergent parabolas; a tangent at a crunode to one branch, and we have the trident curve; or lastly, a tangent at a cusp, and we have the cubical parabola. - It may be added that there are on the odd circuit three
, but on the even circuit no**inflections****inflection**; it hence also appears that from any point of the odd circuit there can be drawn to the odd circuit two tangents, and to the even circuit (if any) two tangents, but that from a point of the even circuit there cannot be drawn (either to the odd or the even circuit) any real tangent; consequently, in a simplex curve the number of tangents from any point is two; but in a complex curve the number is four, or none, - f our if the point is on the odd circuit, none if it is on the even circuit. - The most simple case is when three double points come into coincidence, thereby giving rise to a triple point; and a somewhat more complicated one is when we have a cusp of the second kind, or node-cusp arising from the coincidence of a node, a cusp, an
**inflection**, and a double tangent, as shown in the annexed figure, which represents the singularities as on the point of coalescing. - It may be mentioned that the single sheet is a sort of wavy form, having upon it three lines of
**inflection**, and which is met by any plane through the vertex in one or in three lines; the twin-pair sheet has no lines of**inflection**, and resembles in its form a cone on an oval base.
