Definition
replacement — typically a person who takes the job of another person, but it can also be a thing that replaces something else
  • The fact that Pea had only spoken to Mary Cole five or six times in his life, most of them times when she was still married to Joe Cole, didn't mean a thing to a bystander like Gus, or even a bystander like Deets; both of them seemed to take it for granted that Mary regarded him as a fit successor to Joe.
