The Closing Word: Ramification

Image of Closing Word IconThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you how to specifically implement it in business. A well-spoken, intelligent agent inspires confidence with clients and colleagues alike.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (ram-ih-fuh-CAY-shun)

1. A consequence of an action or event, esp. when complex or unwelcome.
2. A subdivision of a complex structure or process.

branch – fork – embranchment – offshoot

Note: People often incorrectly spell (and pronounce) “ramification” as “ramnification.” The extra “ni” is incorrect.


“It’s very important to only buy as much house as you can afford. The ramifications of an unrealistic mortgage payment include family stress, consumer debt, and ultimately the threat of foreclosure.”
