- Fractional: pertaining to a fraction or small portion of a thing: hence, subordinate: unimportant. 'Our sun may, therefore, be only one member of a higher family- taking his part, along with millions of others, in some loftier system of mechanism, by which they are all subjected to one law, and to one arrangement- describing the sweep of such an orbit in space, and completing the mighty revolution in such a period of time as to reduce our planetary seasons and our planetary movements to a very humble and fractionary rank in the scale of a higher astronomy."- Dr. Chalmers.
