Funny how decimation just means overall destruction now and not, to reduce by a tenth as the Romans used it. mmmm hotforwords makes me think and hotforprofits makes me money.
You’re almost right. Instead of reducing a number or population BY one-tenth, decimation actually means reducing it TO one-tenth of the original number or population. So it really means a 90% reduction, as in reducing a population to just 10% of its original numbers.
That’s why it’s used to indicate widespread destruction– 90% of whatever you’re measuring would be obliterated.
I couldn’t find this explained anywhere but if you are correct about the 90% reduction a plausible reason might be that “decimation” is the same as moving the “decimal” point one space to the left i.e… 100. becomes 10.0
