I just looked up the meaning of ramification in Longman Advanced American Dictionary and found this definition. Don't you think you is missing before may? Is it a typo or what?

a result or effect of something you do, which may not have expected when you first decided to do it.

I definitely agree with you.
Or you could say, "which may not have been expected when you first decided to do it."

As an aside, may I ask if this is the only definition Longman gives?
I have a somewhat different sense of the term, but I may well be wrong.

Edit. My Am Htg gives that as the fourth and last definition.
Thanks, Avangi.

Yes, the only definition. What definition do you have in mind?

It's only that I'd remove the human element as an essential component. I think it's optional.

I have: 1.the act or process of branching out or dividing into branches. 2. a branch or other subordinate part extending from a main body. 3. - 4. -
Very che-che!

I am not familiar with this term, Avangi. Please explain? Cheap?

I think, the opposite!
/ fashionable / stylish / chic

(sometimes used sarcastically)
How should I pronounce the ch in che-che? Like ch in cheap or ch in chauffeur?

Thanks once again,
