A settlement

Post by Stardust on Mon 16 May 2011 - 8:33

Don't know about you others but I find dots and dashes difficult to count. They're just a guide in addition to the number of letters.

A settlement = Rancherie (residential area of an Indian Reserve)

Me too. Looks as though could be an Italian word, probably associated with the opera or something like that?

There is a word I found which ends with o and means a short piece of music between two longer ones but it doesn't begin with R. It does have 10 letters--intermezzo. shrug

You're on the right track, you two, and it's in Webster's dictionary.

I just checked the online versions of the Oxford English and Chambers - it's in both.
It's a well-known word, not obscure like some of the previous ones here.

R _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ O

Found it! But ... wasn't an easy passage at all. First checked in my trusty old Crosswords List. Only two words listed beginning R, ending O. - ritardando and ritornello.
Looked up both in dictionary (Chambers) - first one out. Second one (ritornello) did not really give me the explanation I'm looking for:
ritornello: a short instrumental passage in a vocal work, e.g. a prelude or refrain; a passage for the whole orchestra in a concerto

Soooo .... I had to look it up on line - and guess who was able to give me the info ...
The American Heritage Dictionary!

RITORNELLO:

  • An instrumental interlude recurring after each stanza in a vocal work.
  • A passage or section for full orchestra in a concerto or aria.
  • An instrumental interlude in early 17th-century opera.
  • The refrain of a rondo.

(Just for that, Stardust ... I am going to make you WORK for the next one ... sweat, blood 'n tears!) study

The word we're looking for is singular then, KitKat (as in stalk)?
Just checking because I found one that might fit, except it's a plural.

Silly me!!!

I've just seen it's only 8 letters and I was looking for 10. Aargh! Spent ages squinting my eyes at the dictionary for nothing. You must be savouring your revenge, KitKat.

Sorry, KitKat, but after trawling through the 10-letter words by mistake I really didn't feel up to starting all over again with the 8-letter ones.
Have you remembered what the word was?
