rotation - act of...?

Post by Legato » Sun Feb 21, 2016 4:17 pm

Hello. Today I encountered such sentence : While sister Katherine has been lenient with Ella, her rotation ends today and Sister Dora's weeklong shift begins tonight.

I don't know what the " rotation " means exactly in this sentence. Can anyone explain it to me?

'Rotation' is a slightly unusual choice of word, 'rota' would be better. It means that Ella has finished her (work) shift, and Dora is beginning hers.

'Rotation' is an odd choice of word. I think they mean 'rota', or (work) shift.

I don't think it's odd. Each has its own use. You can surf the net for a clear definition of the 2 words.
