Annexed is a adjective which comes from the Latin word annexus and that, according to the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE ), is used as a synonym for old . What is annex is found added or is linked to something or someone .
For example: “The offices work in a building attached to the hospital”, "He contract Rental has an annex detailing the reasons that can lead the owner to terminate the agreement unilaterally ”, "The club intends to acquire a land attached to the stadium to build a training ground".
The concept of annex is often used with reference to dependencies that are next to a building. That is to say: an annex is a complementary construction of the main one. The Chamber of Deputies of Argentina To name a case, it has an annex building where the offices of many officials work and where there is also an auditorium. A college , on the other hand, can have as annexes buildings for students to settle there during the school year.
The need to build a building Annex to another is very common in companies with great experience, which have been centralized in a property for decades and can no longer contain all its employees; If management believes it is beneficial to keep them all in the same branch, then this type of extension is ideal.
In some cases, the annex building may have the mere objective of physically expanding the capacity of the principal; However, as can be seen in the case of the Chamber of Deputies of Argentina, it can also be used to add new kinds of facilities, such as an auditorium, so that it can also carry out activities that were not possible before.
The annexes are also comments or annotations that complement a document . Suppose a sociologist presents an investigation into violence in a given city. This researcher develops his work over thirty pages. Then, as an annex, add another five pages detailing three particular situations. The annex, in this case, serves to exemplify or complete its theoretical development and conclusions.
In certain contexts, it is described as an annex to what results secondary or accessory : “That is something attached: now we have to focus on how to solve this problem”.
There is a thin line in the definition of the term annexed that brings it incorrectly to the concept of unnecessary. If we focus on the meanings of the SAR dictionary once again, we do not find this nuance in any of them; In addition to those expressed in the previous paragraphs, we find "concerning, inherent or proper", as well as "tissues and organs that are around the uterus: the peritoneum, the ovaries and the tubes."
And it is in the fields of medicine and biology that we can find reasons to avoid the derogatory tone that the term usually receives annexed in everyday speech: just as the uterus needs the organs and tissues just mentioned to function properly and healthily, also the investigation about violence (present in a previous example) can only be considered complete if the annex is taken into account.
Continuing with the use that this word has in science, we know that the pancreas and liver are considered adjoining glands to the digestive system, and what part of its functions It consists in collaborating with the absorption and digestion of food. Could we live without either of these two organs? The answer is a resounding no, since these are two essential components of our body, and the protagonists of some of the most serious diseases that our species can suffer.
