    Scholarize

    What does the verb "scholarize" mean? I can't find any dictionary entries for it, but I know it exists.

    Thanks.

    Re: Scholarize

    Hi,

    As per the rules of this forum, I will say that I am not a teacher (yet) so take anything I say with a grain of salt.

    'Scholarize' can mean to educate or enlighten, but it can also mean to make something more academic by making its language more formal or by other means.

    There might be other ways of using the word, but I'd 'scholarize' my paper by using more complex wordings / organization and asking some hard-to-answer questions.

    I could be wrong, though.

    I have never come across a verb "to scholarize" in English. In French "scolarisť(e)" is an adjective, someone who is "scolarisť(e)" is someone who is enrolled in a school, a school student.
