DECADE (_plural_ DECADES) * A series or group of ten things. [from 16th c.] _a DECADE of soldiers_ * A period of ten years. [from 17th c.] * 1992, Rudolf M. Schuster, _The Hepaticae and Anthocerotae of North America: East of the Hundredth Meridian_, volume V, page viii The repeated exposure, over DECADES, to most taxa here treated has resulted in repeated modifications of both diagnoses and discussions, as initial ideas of the various taxa underwent—often repeated—conceptual modification. * (French historical) In the French Revolutionary calendar, a group of ten days. [from 18th c.] * 2002, Colin Jones, _The Great Nation_, Penguin 2003, p. 481: The year was divided up into twelve months renamed after the seasons [...]; each month comprised three ‘DECADES’ of ten days – with the _décadi_ replacing Sundays as a day of rest; and each day was reconsecrated to a natural product or farming tool or technique. * (Roman Catholicism) A series of ten Hail Marys in the rosary. * (physics, engineering) The interval between any two quantities having the ratio 10 to 1. _There are DECADES between 1.8 and 18, between 25 and 250 and between 0.03 and 0.003._ USAGE NOTES Unlike centuries or millennia (which properly run from xxx1 to xxx0), decades are an informal unit generally taken to run from xxx0 to xxx9. That is, the first century began in the year 1 and ended in the year 100 but the Nineties are those years whose name includes the word "ninety": '90, '91, '92...
