    Re: word choice (segment vs segmentation)

    I'm not a teacher, but I am a field supervisor for a couple of market research companies, and I can say without hesitation that "market segmentation" fits perfectly in there. From a market research point of view, "market segmentation" is what I would be expecting to see in that space.
