Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
Heterogeneity \Het`er*o*ge*ne"i*ty\, n. [Cf. F.
The state of being heterogeneous; contrariety.
Although I understand why, definitions like this get up my nostrils. Something
like the attribute/property of being diverse would be a lot more helpful. I
wouldn't have used contrariety though - I'm all for contrariety? Doesn't
sound very productive.
