Sporadic is an adjective that you can use to refer to something that happens or appears often, but not constantly or regularly. The mail carrier comes every day but the plumber’s visits are sporadic — he comes as needed.
A specialized use of sporadic is to describe a disease that appears only occasionally in random cases, and is therefore not an epidemic. Mostly, though, you’ll hear this word used to describe anything that happens occasionally, like your family’s sporadic trips to visit your distant cousins in Ohio or the sporadic bake sales your science club sponsors when it’s low on funds. English borrowed the word sporadic from Greek sporadikós, “scattered.”
sporadic 的专门用途是描述一种只在随机病例中偶尔出现的疾病，因此不是流行病。不过，大多数情况下，你会听到这个词用来描述任何偶尔发生的事情，比如你的家人偶尔去俄亥俄州拜访你的远房表亲，或者你的科学俱乐部在资金不足时偶尔赞助的烘焙义卖。英语从希腊语 sporadikós 中借用了 sporadic 这个词，意思是“分散的”。
