Operationalise just means implement, yeah? Goddamn verb nouning.
@pelagikat Also "define" (at least in my discipline)
@pelagikat For example, in articulatory phonetics creaky voice is operationalised as a particular ratio of open:closed state of the glottis.
@drbuttocks This feels more like they wanted to use another word instead of implement here.
@pelagikat Hmm. That does read a little oddly to me. Perhaps a difference in the way our disciplines use the word. Check with a supervisor, perhaps?
@pelagikat Verbing weirds language.
