Word of the Day
Friday, January 19, 2007
Rallentando (adjective) – This is another great one…not sure why (probably because it’s musical), but this word appeals to me greatly. It means to slow down gradually; slacken the tempo (like a ritardando) (the word originates in Italian – of course!)

Word in a Sentence: In John Taylor’s Immortal, the rallentando near the end of the second verse manipulates my emotions as easily as any Hollywood movie script.

Your turn! I’ve left the Chopin and Vivaldi references to Ron…the Franz Ferdinand to Larry (Take Me Out!).
