  • adj. Having lofty arches.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Or, if this may not be, because our Alma Mater is still too poor or too humble to offer to her returning children such banqueting-place, -- if there is no Wykcham or Waynflete or Wolsey to arch for us the high-embowed roof, let us place our memorial in the Library, along its shaded alcoves and above its broad portals.
