dihedral
i. The positive acute angle between the lateral axis of an airplane and a line through the center of a wing or horizontal stabilizer. A dihedral is normally associated with a low-wing aircraft, although some dihedral angles may be incorporated into high-wing aircraft as well. A dihedral increases the lateral stability of an airplane.
ii. The angular difference between the chords of the wing and the tailplane. This is normally referred to as longitudinal dihedral.
