What is fallen?

It would seem, how simple and short the word "fallen" can be multi-valued? However, in accordance with the dictionary of D. Ushakov, three meanings of this word can be distinguished. Let us consider in more detail what has fallen.

  • The first primary value can be divided into three. Thus, a fire is a fire in a steppe, in a forest or in a field, which often occurs during a fire hazard period. Also, pal was called the intentional burning of areas, which was previously used to increase soil fertility. In this case, the steady expression "let it fall" is used. In the third meaning, pal has been synonymous with the word "palm", which in turn means a burnt place in the forest. This method is often used in slash-and-burn agriculture.
  • Reinforced concrete block or pile, to which the vessel is tied with ropes for the period of stay.
  • The past tense form is masculine from the verb "fall". Example: "He fell an innocent victim in a bloody and merciless battle."

These are the meanings of the word "fallen" in Russian.
