omitted "r." Moreover, I rather suspect the source is the big bugaboo
of too many electronic dictionaries: plagiarism. At
you will find the supposed verb "statity" _conjugated_ so as to have
"he/she/it statitys" and "they statityd" in the past. That could be
taken to suggest that one of the two sites "vacuumed" the other. In
addition, Seznam already has "stratify" correctly spelled.
