The term gap, a derivation of the franco word breka (“broken”), is used to name a break, gap or opening. The concept is often used to refer to breaks in walls or walls. For example: “The breach in the fortress wall allowed the invaders to enter. “
According to DigoPaul, gap, however, can be applied in various fields, such as a head injury or a break at the front of combat. The word is also used in a symbolic sense to name the gap where something begins to lose its certainty or security: “The president’s explanation left a gap that was used by the opposition to make strong criticism. “
However, we also have to establish that there is what is known as breach marble. This we can say that it is that type of marble that is fundamentally characterized by the fact that it is composed of fragments of different shapes but very angular that also have the peculiarity of having different colors that give it a different presence.
Under the term gap we also have to underline the existence of a communication medium that is titled in this way. We are referring to the weekly “Brecha” that was founded in 1985 in Uruguay and that in its pages addresses both political and cultural issues. It is important to emphasize that this publication has its origin in a previous weekly called “Marcha” that was closed in the decade of the 70’s by the government dictatorship of the time.
For geology, a breccia is a conglomerate that is formed by small pieces of rock held together by some type of natural cement. According to the formation process, we can speak of different types of gap: a sedimentary gap appears when the stones, shells and other bodies were buried by very fine sediments that, after consolidating, imprisoned them (for example, tilita); A volcanic gap, on the other hand, is one that is constituted by the debris of volcanic rocks; Finally, a tectonic gap is formed when a slip occurs between the two lips of a fault (as in the case of mylonite).
It is important to take into account that the conglomerate of the breccias is always formed by angular fragments and larger than 2 millimeters, unlike the components of the sand. There is the monogenic gap (with components of the same nature) and the polygenic gap (with elements of different types).
In addition to all this that we have exposed, we can also make it clear that there are several adverbial phrases that make use of the aforementioned term that we are analyzing. Among them there is one that is used very frequently within the colloquial sphere. It is specifically the expression “in the gap”. With it, what becomes clear is that someone is working or fighting for a specific issue.
In the same way, there is also the verbal phrase “beat in gap”. In this case, it has several meanings, the most widely used being the one that states that it means that someone is being pursued with the clear objective of knocking him down.
