My Word of the Day
To RING (RING) v.n.1. To sound as a bell or sonorous metal.
Ring out ye crystal spheres, And let your silver chime Move in melodious time;And let the base of heav’n’s deep organ blow. Milton.
No funeral rites nor man in mournful weeds, Nor mournful bell shall ring her burial. Shakesp.
Easy it might be to ring other changes upon the same bells. Norris’s Miseellanies.
At Latagus a weighty stone he flung;His face was flatted, and his helmet rung. Dryden.2. To practise the art of making musick with bells.
Signs for communication may be contrived at pleasure: four bells admit twenty-four changes in ringing; each change may, by agreement, have a certain signification. Holder.3. To sound; to resound.
Hercules, missing his page, called him by his name aloud, that all the shore rang of it. Bacon.
The particular ringing sound in gold, distinct from the sound of other bodies, has no particular name. Locke.
With sweeter notes each rising temple rung, A Raphael painted! and a Vida sung!Immortal Vida!Pope.4. To utter as a bell.
Ere to black Hecat’s summons The shard-born beetle, with his drowsy hums, Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done A deed of dreadful note. Shakesp. Macbeth.5. To tinkle.
My ears still ring with noise; I’m vext to death:Tongue-kill’d, and have not yet recover’d breath. Dryden.6. To be filled with a bruit or report.
That profane, atheistical, epicurean rabble, whom the whole nation so rings of, are not indeed, what they vote themselves, the wisest men in the world. South.
