If you would like to read some information relating to the meaning of cascade, keep on reading.
Cascade is a word that depending on the context it is used in could be either a noun or a verb.
Basically ‘cascade’ usually refers to flow, either from top to bottom or in a pre-defined series of events.
This flow can be physical, for example, cascading (a verb in this context) water over a waterfall. The word cascade can also relate to the transfer of intangible things, such as the transfer of information through a series of cascades (a noun in this context) within a set system.
Another example could be cascading leafy plants in a living wall. The layers, or individual cascades would be using the word as a noun, whereas the description of growing plants flowing down the living wall could be termed as cascading. This is a verb in this context because even though the ‘doing’ of plants growing is much slowing than the flow of water in a waterfall, ‘cascading’ in this sentence is still describing an action that the plants are doing.
See out pages relating to what is a noun and what is a verb for more information about nouns (naming words) and verbs (doing words).
