word of the day: degenerate

degenerate: noun. one who has lost moral, physical or mental authority or consciousness.

verb. to decline mentally, physically or morally.

I am being told right now that in Physics, vibrational modes are degenerate if they have the same frequencies/energies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degenerate_energy_level).
