velle

Added a French abbreviation for violoncelle which I discovered whilst adapting Le Cygne for a string quartet. However, I'm a Wikipedian, not a Wiktionarian, and don't really know the formats you guys use here. I'd appreciate if someone reviewed my addition and cleaned it up as seen fit. Thanks!

Ok I'll add it back (I had deleted it) but I'll look for some more evidence that it's used outside just this one piece of music. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:25, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
I saw it frequently in my youth when I used to play cello, but I can't vouch for its being periodless velle as opposed to velle. with a period, nor for its being lower-case as opposed to upper-case. I seem to remember it was usually formatted "Velle" (maybe with a period). —Angr 21:09, 25 December 2011 (UTC)



In response to the verification query, see [1]. Bob the Wikipedian (talkcontribs) 18:30, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah that's one citation which looks to be for Velle as it happens, but only one. NB I'd tend to accept that citation, anyone disagree? Mglovesfun (talk) 18:45, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

velle

Rfv-sense: Abbreviation of violoncelle. I asked on the French Wiktionary and Lmaltier answered "yes, why not, though I can't find any examples of use" (paraphrased translation). Mglovesfun (talk) 14:23, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

And I found many examples of various other abbreviations. Without further information, this one should be removed. Lmaltier 07:48, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
