  • As a hammer dulcimer player, I HAVE heard of this word.

    However, the sentence examples don't use this word. They are in French, and their "santir" may actually be a misspelling of the word "sentir" meaning to feel. It's possible that they mean an unusual French word, but I didn't find it in online French dictionaries, such as Larousse.

    Also the two sentences are the same quote, but the second instance has typos.
