What Does Assimilation Mean?

Answer

Assimilation is the process by which one thing becomes part of another thing. For example, when two companies merge together one company becomes part of the other company and now there is just one company. Assimilation can take on many forms, but the central essence is different things becoming similar in nature and indistinguishable from one another.
