Word:

Reliction

Re`lic´tion   Pronunciation: r?-l?k´sh?n
n.1.(Law) A leaving dry; a recession of the sea or other water, leaving dry land; land left uncovered by such recession.

RELICTION. An increase of the land by the sudden retreat of the sea or a river.
     2. Relicted lands arising from the sea and in navigable rivers, (q.v.) generally belong to the state and all relicted lands of unnavigable rivers generally belong to the proprietor of the estate to which such rivers act as boundaries. Schultes on Aqu. Rights, 138; Ang. on Tide Wat. 75. But this reliction must be from the sea in its usual state for if it should inundate the land and then recede, this would be no reliction. Harg. Tr. 15. Vide Ang. on Wat. Co. 220.
     3. Reliction differs from avulsion, (q.v.) and from alluvion. (q.v.)
