Default [Dixonary] Rnd 2994 VICARIANCE Results

I was going to play the word VICARIAD which is on obsolete version of
VICARIANCE but I decided that I might get away with a definition that
was effectively defining itself by itself "the existence of vicariant
forms" - I will admit that despite my training I did not know this word
- the idea that different forms may arise on either side of a
geographical barrier is well known to me but that it was defined by this
word was not. Other of you seem to be more knowledgable for it earned me
a D3
