In Roman-Dutch law: the action or process of adiate.
Early 19th century. Irregularly from classical Latin adīre to approach, to come into (an inheritance) + -ation; compare classical Latin aditiō act of taking possession of an inheritance. Compare Dutch † aditie (rare) acceptance of an inheritance and Afrikaans adiasie (probably from English). Compare also Dutch aangaan, use as noun of aangaan to accept (an inheritance). Compare slightly later adiate.
