## integralize

verb; derivation

to integrate a mathematical function Like ‘derivatize,’ another neologism discussed, INTEGRALIZE has a light-hearted feel to it. It is pretty clearly a combination of INTEGRAL and –IZE. Instead of using the word ‘integrate,’ he used a different verb forming suffix. My roommate was just looking for a funny way to describe a mathematical process. This improved his attitude toward the assignment, which was important because the problem set was both difficult and uninteresting. This word was also used because it so much resembled a previously coined word, ‘derivatize.’

Etymology : Eng. integral (
