- n. The act or process of deforming.
- n. The condition of being deformed.
- n. An alteration of form for the worse.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The act of deforming, or changing the form of; change of form.
- n. An altered form.
- n. Deformity; disfigurement.
- n. In geometry and mech., a change of shape of a body or surface without any breach of the continuity of its parts, and generally without any alteration of the size of them; relative displacement of parts; strain.
- n. In botany, any malformation or abnormal growth due to the attack of some parasite.
- n. In geology, the process whereby, under the influence of strains (usually compressive), individual strata, masses of rock, or larger portions of the earth's crust suffer change of form, as when massive rocks become schistose, flat strata are folded, or mountain-ranges are upheaved.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. The act of deforming, or state of anything deformed.
- n. Transformation; change of shape.
- n. a change for the worse
- n. alteration in the shape or dimensions of an object as a result of the application of stress to it
- n. the act of twisting or deforming the shape of something (e.g., yourself)
“The problem was, this is what we call deformation zone.”
“Using InSAR and GPS data, scientists are able to measure and monitor where and how stress changes in the crust as well as how any associated deformation is distributed.”
“By adding boring grooves, T/C barrels provide more consistent velocities and a snug fit where bullet deformation is less likely.”
“The resistance to flow under plastic deformation is called its viscoplasticity.”
“To say that deformation is simply another name for selection minimizes the radical scale of its intervention.”
“At an earlier stage, however, the activity can be started, as with a sense organ, by mechanical deformation, and it ceases when the deformation is over.”
“I was picturing shorter term deformation measurements like those used in volcano monitoring.”
“Until the unfortunate reform - one should call it "deformation" - many converts found their way to the Church via the liturgy.”
