Word of the Day
Thursday, January 4, 2007
Cittern (noun) – a guitar with a pear-shaped body, from the 16th century (the word originates in Middle English “gitern”, which makes sense because it represents a Medieval stringed instrument)

Word in a Sentence: Sting’s next album should feature a cittern instead of a lute.

Your turn! Give me something musical…
