1. a knot, swelling, or knob
2. (Botany) the point on a plant stem from which the leaves or lateral branches grow
3. (General Physics) physics a point at which the amplitude of one of the two kinds of displacement in a standing wave has zero or minimum value. Generally the other kind of displacement has its maximum value at this point. See also standing wave Compare antinode
4. (Mathematics) maths Also called: crunode a point at which two branches of a curve intersect, each branch having a distinct tangent
5. (Linguistics) maths linguistics one of the objects of which a graph or a tree consists; vertex
6. (Mathematics) maths linguistics one of the objects of which a graph or a tree consists; vertex
7. (Astronomy) astronomy either of the two points at which the orbit of a body intersects the plane of the ecliptic. When the body moves from the south to the north side of the ecliptic, it passes the ascending node; moving from the north to the south side, it passes the descending node
8. (Anatomy) anatomy
a. any natural bulge or swelling of a structure or part, such as those that occur along the course of a lymphatic vessel (lymph node)
b. a finger joint or knuckle
