Dropping is word that could be used as a noun and as well as a verb. As a noun something which is dropped is called 'dropping'. The excrement of animals or the solid waste from birds or animals is also called dropping. Dropping is obtained from the verb drop. Drop has its origin in Old English and is taken from the word dropa. It was then adapted by Middle English as droppe.

Dropping is the continuous tense of drop. When it is said, 'the temperature is dropping'; he indicates that the temperature is coming down or reducing. Thus, dropping means 'reducing as in number, intensity or volume'. Dropping could also be used to indicate: falling into or sinking into a state of exhaustion or death; descending from one level to another; and falling from a higher place or position.
