1) The act or process of organizing.

M.E. organizacion, from M.L. organization-, from
organizatus p.p. of organizare "organize"
Sâzmân, from sâz present stem of sâxtan, sâzidan
"to build, make, fashion; to adapt, adjust, be fit" (from
Mid.Pers. sâxtan, sâz-, Manichean Parthian s'c'dn "to prepare,
to form;" Av. sak- "to understand, to mark,"
sâcaya- (causative) "to teach") + -mân verbal noun suffix
used with present and past stems, as in zâymân, câymân;
The suffix -mân occurs extensively in some dialects, in particular in Garkuye-yi
where it replaces the infinitive suffix -idan:
resâmon (= rasidan "to arrive"),
kešâmon (= kešidan "to draw"),
kartemon (= kardan "to do"),
bartemon (= bordan "to carry, bear"),
paxdemon (= poxtan "to cook"),
esbârtemon (= sepordan "entrust, make over to"),
bâfdemon (= bâftan "to weave"),
ašnofdemon (= šenidan "to hear"),
terakâmon (= tarakidan "to blast"),
teknâmon (= tekândan "to shake").
Note 2: -mân may be related to Av. suffix -man, which forms
a number of derivative action-nous: rasman- "column, rank," from raz-
vaēsman- "dwelling," from vaes- "to be or keep ready as, to serve as;"
nāman- "name;" asman- "stone, heaven."
