from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A half-circle; a semicircle.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
York's streets, a hemicircle of horizon, a hemisphere of sky, and a vast expanse of open water lent itself neither to calm appraisal nor to impromptu cuff-notes.
With a hemicircle of sufficient size, one might plot all of the hundreds upon hundreds of these radii, and each would represent a distinct line, if only a heron's width apart.
What we should be focusing on is this: hemicircle theaters.
Have directors film their movies with 180 degree lense, then project it on a hemicircle in a theater.
