How Do You Spell BATING?

Pronunciation: [bˈe͡ɪtɪŋ] (IPA)

The word "bating" is spelled with a "t" and not a "d" even though it ends in "-ating." This is because the "t" in "bating" is pronounced as a voiceless sound while the "d" in "dating" is pronounced as a voiced sound. The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) transcription for "bating" is /beɪtɪŋ/. This means that the "t" is pronounced without using the vocal cords, while the "ɪ" represents the "i" sound as in "sit" and the "ŋ" is the sound at the end of "sing."

BATING Meaning and Definition

  1. "Bating" is a verb that refers to the act of soaking or steeping certain materials in a liquid in order to soften or clean them. The term is commonly used in the context of leather-making, where it involves soaking animal hides in a solution to remove impurities, reduce stiffness, and prepare the material for tanning.

    The process of bating typically involves immersing the hides in a mixture of water and enzymes, usually extracted from animal organs or microbial sources. These enzymes help break down unwanted proteins, fats, and other substances present on the surface of the hide. By undergoing bating, the hides become more receptive to further treatment, such as dyeing and tanning.

    Bating not only cleans the hides but also improves their pliability, making them easier to work with during the subsequent stages of leather production. Additionally, it helps remove any residual hair and flesh that may be left after the initial fleshing process.

    Apart from leather-making, the term "bating" can also be used in a figurative sense, referring to the process of provoking or enticing someone into reacting or responding. In this context, it implies deliberately irritating or annoying someone in order to elicit a particular reaction or to manipulate a situation for personal gain.

Etymology of BATING

The word "bating" has various etymological origins depending on its context:

1. As a present participle of the verb "bate", meaning to restrain or calm down, the word "bating" likely originated from the Middle English term "abate", derived from Old French "abatre". This word itself can be traced back to Late Latin "battuere" or "batere", meaning to beat or fight. Over time, "abate" developed the additional sense of toning down or lessening.

2. In the context of falconry, "bating" refers to a bird of prey flapping its wings vigorously and attempting to escape from its perch or leash. This usage is derived from the Old French term "battre des ailes", which translates to "to flutter wings". Eventually, "bating" emerged as the shortened form in English.
