Meanings sorted by:

ut queant laxis (1)

Beginning of the hymn to St. John the Baptist of the 8th-century Lombard Benedictine monk Paul the Deacon. Guido dArezzo in the eleventh century used the initial syllables of the verses of the first stanza to name the musical notes : UT queant laxis / REsonare fibris / MIra gestorum / FAmuli tuorum / SOLve polluti / LAbii reatum / Sancte Ioannes : So that these servants of yours may exalt your wonders, forgive the lack of your unclean lips, O blessed St. John!

ut queant laxis (2)

The seventh note of the scale ( if ) introduced it into the sixteenth century Anselmo of Flanders joining the initials of the words of the last verse of the stanza : Sancte Ioannes . In the XVII the Italian musicologist Giovanni Battista Doni replaced the UT note with DO, taken perhaps from the initial of Dominus (Lord) or perhaps From Doni. And so we have the musical scale : do , re , mi , fa , sun , the , yes.

hablar con tejadillo

Say something by covering your mouth with your hand so that those who see you can't read lips. Football players usually do this when they talk to each other or to the referee in televised matches. I don't think this image is very aesthetic. What do you want to hide? We see what they do.

calle del viejo idiota

That's what Valle-Inclán called Echegaray Street near Plaza Santa Ana in Madrid's Las Letras neighborhood, formerly called Calle del Lobo. Our first nobel of literature did not have much acceptance among his literary companions, especially those of '98 and especially Don Ramón who had a friend on that street and who got his letters in spite of everything. On one occasion Don José Echegaray in conciliatory spirit offered him his blood for a transfusion when Don Ramón was already very bad. "No, not that man's blood. It's full of geraniums," they say he said.

vinari letari

Drink wine, rejoice. This inscription appears on one of the faces of a turricle or dice cube with which the Romans played quinito or drinking game, appearing in the Roman village of La Olmeda in Pedrosa de la Vega in Palencia, where beautiful mosaics have also been found. The complete legend said : Vinari , letari , ludere , ridere , hoc est vivere : Drink , rejoice , play , laugh , this is living .

D. C. along the Guadiana River and related to Tartessos. In the year 79 a. D. C. it was refounded by the Roman proconsul Quintus Caecilius Metellus with the installation there of camp Metellinum which over time and the sonorization of the t was transformed into Medellin, homeland girl of Hernán Cortés.


I : This is the capital "i", the tenth letter of our alphabet and the third of our vowels because in that order they appear in the Latin alphabet and in the Greek, although in the latter there were seven vowels. They had a short "e" they called epsilon, a long "e" or eta, a short "o" or omicron, and a long "o" or omega. The "I" also represents the 1 in The Roman numeration and in English the pronoun I that we write with lowercase . And why do English yoes have to be more bombastic? It also symbolized the particular affirmative proposition in Scholastic Logic and Iodine in Chemistry

el jarramplas

Symbolic character of the winter masquerade of the Piornal, Extremaduran town of the Jerte Valley. It bears some similarity to The Carocha of my asturleonese land and to the ancestral shepherd rites of the Bulgarian film Horn of Goat. Many interpretations of representation have been given: Evil that is overcome by good as a sacramental self, the black plague of the fourteenth century, the ajustments of the inquisition, confrontation between Jews and Christians. . . .


The tessellations were responsible for preparing the tiles by breaking pieces of marble and limestone of different colors to make the mosaics of the interior pavements in classical Rome. Sometimes they also did the work of the Musiuarii. The musivarios embedded the tiles on the floor or walls with lime mortar and marble dust. The resulting work, the mosaics, used to have mythological or everyday motives


From Greek thessers and thessares, four, on the four sides that have the quadrangular pieces of mosaics made by the Romans and Byzantine Greeks from marble plates or other minerals. The tiles that handled the tesselriums and classic musivarios were no more than a square centimeter which required a lot of patience and dedication.


In Portuguese tinsmith, boilermaker, which works and arranges tin, sheet metal or zinc objects such as showers, candiles, buckets, boilers, oils and almost all objects of the kitchen before. One of the most vivid images of my childhood is that of the tinters in the town square fixing all kinds of pots. The boiler holes that were put in the chimney seals covered them with small copper cones.

so, g'sell, so

It is the night cry of the guardians of the tower of the Gothic church of St. George in the medieval German city of Nordlingen. "Everything's fine, mates, everything's fine." So they say from ancient every half hour from 22 to 24 hours, because there is no enemy in sight outside the walls of the old city.


Derived from yaws. In Germany he appoints those who make the eye or receive information by winks. The yaw of the rogues of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries always had his eyes wide open.

la fila de los mancos

This was called in the last years of the dictatorship and at the beginning of the transition the last row of cinema seats with very poor visibility, but highly sought after by teenage couples of hormones altered to get their hands on. Then with the rise of television and internet many rooms were closing, although it seems that they have been recovering.

tararí que te ví

Tararí that I saw you : Or I simply hummed, onomatopoeic sound of the trumpet touch, is a colloquial adverbial locution of denial with some nuance of mockery to indicate that the facts happened against what was expected or will act against what was proposed by another. It therefore indicates non-compliance with what is promised or expected or disbelief. It equates to a non-angry or a "nothing, cute" or a "come already" or a "no, man, no." A different sense of expression indicates unexpected surprise.


Plant our abandoned fields of the resedaceous family, which also call farolilla, gualdilla, gualdón, wild reseda, sesamoide menor ( reseda phyteuma ), whose hardened seeds were used for children's rattles.

ser del puño cerrado

Also belonging to the brotherhood of the fist, because the closed fist is an obvious redundancy, it is the same as being stingy, being more grabbed than a chotis, (say the Madridians), being a rácano when sharing material goods with others, being a weigher who does not let go or a hard, do not want to share with anyone. When we go with reeds for our madriles, (how do we miss it!) , you can immediately see who's in the brotherhood. By Guadalajara they usually say that someone is more grabbed than those of Durón next to Budia, (two Alcarreño villages).


Unknown language of a strange tribe perhaps from Africa for more than 60 years. 000 years settled on the North Sentinel Island of the Andaman Islands archipelago in the Gulf of Bengal between India and Burma. They have no contact with civilization. In 2018 they shot dead an unwary missionary who approached. Its technical development could correspond to the Neolithic. Looks like they survived the 2004 tsunami.

a torrendo

Medieval Castellanization of the Latin expression ad torrendum, to cook under the ash or to twist the bread acimo, without yeast, which they also called sub-incineration or bread to torquendo of Hispanic Jews, of torque, to spin, to turn, to turn.
