A.Word.A.Day--quaquaversal

Pronunciation: WAV or RealAudio

quaquaversal (kwuh-kwuh-VUR-sal) adjective

Sloping downward from the center in all directions.

[From Latin quaquavers(us) literally, wheresoever turned, turned everywhere + -al.]

"Because the contemporary business organization is struggling with the quaquaversal--that is, radiating out in every direction from the center--nature of global business (geographic dispersal, mutating labor arrangements, imploding distribution models), teamware offers the hope of improving communication in ways traditional applications simply can't. Jeff Angus & Sean Gallagher, Keep your team in touch, InformationWeek, May 11, 1998.
