sinciput

RFV for two English senses and one French sense:

English senses[edit]

These two are not as the word is defined in the NED ("The front part of the head or skull."):

the forehead[edit]

It is possible to interpret the NED’s 1767 quotation as supporting this sense. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 12:31, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

RFV failed. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 04:04, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

the whole upper half of the human head[edit]

It is possible to interpret the NED’s ante 1848, 1873, and figurative circa 1638 quotations as supporting this sense. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 12:31, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

RFV failed. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 04:04, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

French sense (forehead)[edit]

Presumably, the French sinciput would be best translated using the English sinciput, rather than forehead. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 12:31, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

RFV failed. Retranslated with “sinciput”, with front ‎(forehead) included in a See also section. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 04:04, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
