  • 11. What do geographers mean by settlement? <ul><li>A settlement is a general term used in geography and other subjects for a permanent or temporary community in which people live which avoids being specific as to size, population or importance. A settlement can therefore range in size from a small number of dwellings grouped together to the largest of cities with surrounding urbanized areas. The term may include hamlets, villages, towns and cities. </li></ul>
