From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Infinitive \In*fin"i*tive\, n. [L. infinitivus: cf. F.
      infinitif. See {Infinite}.]
      Unlimited; not bounded or restricted; undefined.
  
      {Infinitive mood} (Gram.), that form of the verb which merely
            names the action, and performs the office of a verbal
            noun. Some grammarians make two forms in English: ({a})
            The simple form, as, speak, go, hear, before which to is
            commonly placed, as, to speak; to go; to hear. ({b}) The
            form of the imperfect participle, called the infinitive in
            -ing; as, going is as easy as standing.
  
      Note: With the auxiliary verbs may, can, must, might, could,
               would, and should, the simple infinitive is expressed
               without to; as, you may speak; they must hear, etc. The
               infinitive usually omits to with the verbs let, dare,
               do, bid, make, see, hear, need, etc.; as, let me go;
               you dare not tell; make him work; hear him talk, etc.
  
      Note: In Anglo-Saxon, the simple infinitive was not preceded
               by to (the sign of modern simple infinitive), but it
               had a dative form (sometimes called the gerundial
               infinitive) which was preceded by to, and was chiefly
               employed in expressing purpose. See {Gerund}, 2.
  
      Note: The gerundial ending (-anne) not only took the same
               form as the simple infinitive (-an), but it was
               confounded with the present participle in -ende, or
               -inde (later -inge).

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Labial \La"bi*al\, n.
      1. (Phonetics) A letter or character representing an
            articulation or sound formed or uttered chiefly with the
            lips, as {b}, {p}, {w}.
  
      2. (Mus.) An organ pipe that is furnished with lips; a flue
            pipe.
  
      3. (Zo[94]l.) One of the scales which border the mouth of a
            fish or reptile.

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Legate \Leg"ate\ (l[ecr]g"[asl]t), n. [OE. legat, L. legatus,
      fr. legare to send with a commission or charge, to depute,

      {Legal}.]
      1. An ambassador or envoy.
  
      2. An ecclesiastic representing the pope and invested with
            the authority of the Holy See.
  
      Note: Legates are of three kinds: ({a}) Legates a latere, now
               always cardinals. They are called ordinary or
               extraordinary legates, the former governing provinces,
               and the latter class being sent to foreign countries on
               extraordinary occasions. ({b}) Legati missi, who
               correspond to the ambassadors of temporal governments.
               ({c}) Legati nati, or legates by virtue of their
               office, as the archbishops of Salzburg and Prague.
  
      3. (Rom. Hist.)
            (a) An official assistant given to a general or to the
                  governor of a province.
            (b) Under the emperors, a governor sent to a province.

   Libration \Li*bra"tion\ (l[isl]*br[amac]"sh[ucr]n), n. [L.
      libratio: cf. F. libration.]
      1. The act or state of librating. --Jer. Taylor.
  
      2. (Astron.) A real or apparent libratory motion, like that
            of a balance before coming to rest.
  
      {Libration of the moon}, any one of those small periodical
            changes in the position of the moon's surface relatively
            to the earth, in consequence of which narrow portions at
            opposite limbs become visible or invisible alternately. It
            receives different names according to the manner in which
            it takes place; as: {(a)} Libration in longitude, that
            which, depending on the place of the moon in its elliptic
            orbit, causes small portions near the eastern and western
            borders alternately to appear and disappear each month.
            ({b}) Libration in latitude, that which depends on the
            varying position of the moon's axis in respect to the
            spectator, causing the alternate appearance and
            disappearance of either pole. ({c}) Diurnal or parallactic
            libration, that which brings into view on the upper limb,
            at rising and setting, some parts not in the average
            visible hemisphere.

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Respiration \Res`pi*ra"tion\ (r?s`p?*r?"sh?n), n. [L.
      respiratio: cf. F. respiration. See {Respire}.]
      1. The act of respiring or breathing again, or catching one's
            breath.
  
      2. Relief from toil or suffering: rest. [Obs.]
  
                     Till the day Appear of respiration to the just And
                     vengeance to the wicked.                     --Milton.
  
      3. Interval; intermission. [Obs.] --Bp. Hall.
  
      4. (Physiol.) The act of resping or breathing; the act of
            taking in and giving out air; the aggregate of those
            processes bu which oxygen is introduced into the system,
            and carbon dioxide, or carbonic acid, removed.
  
      Note: Respiration in the higher animals is divided into:
               ({a}) Internal respiration, or the interchange of
               oxygen and carbonic acid between the cells of the body
               and the bathing them, which in one sense is a process
               of nutrition. ({b}) External respiration, or the
               gaseous interchange taking place in the special
               respiratory organs, the lungs. This constitutes
               respiration proper. --Gamgee. In the respiration of
               plants oxygen is likewise absorbed and carbonic acid
               exhaled, but in the light this process is obscured by
               another process which goes on with more vigor, in which
               the plant inhales and absorbs carbonic acid and exhales
               free oxygen.

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   B \B\ (b[emac])
      is the second letter of the English alphabet. (See Guide to
      Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 196, 220.) It is etymologically
      related to p, v, f, w and m, letters representing sounds
      having a close organic affinity to its own sound; as in Eng.
      bursar and purser; Eng. bear and Lat. ferre; Eng. silver and
      Ger. silber; Lat. cubitum and It. gomito; Eng. seven,
      Anglo-Saxon seofon, Ger. sieben, Lat. septem, Gr."epta`,
      Sanskrit saptan. The form of letter B is Roman, from Greek B
      (Beta), of Semitic origin. The small b was formed by gradual
      change from the capital B.
  
      Note: In Music, B is the nominal of the seventh tone in the
               model major scale (the scale of C major ), or of the
               second tone in it's relative minor scale (that of A
               minor ) . B[flat] stands for B flat, the tone a half
               step, or semitone, lower than B. In German, B stands
               for our B[flat], while our B natural is called H
               (pronounced h[84]).

From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Ferment \Fer"ment\, n. [L. fermentum ferment (in senses 1 & 2),
      perh. for fervimentum, fr. fervere to be boiling hot, boil,
      ferment: cf. F. ferment. Cf. 1st {Barm}, {Fervent}.]
      1. That which causes fermentation, as yeast, barm, or
            fermenting beer.
  
      Note: Ferments are of two kinds: ({a}) Formed or organized
               ferments. ({b}) Unorganized or structureless ferments.
               The latter are also called {soluble [or] chemical
               ferments}, and {enzymes}. Ferments of the first class
               are as a rule simple microscopic vegetable organisms,
               and the fermentations which they engender are due to
               their growth and development; as, the {acetic ferment},
               the {butyric ferment}, etc. See {Fermentation}.
               Ferments of the second class, on the other hand, are
               chemical substances, as a rule soluble in glycerin and
               precipitated by alcohol. In action they are catalytic
               and, mainly, hydrolytic. Good examples are pepsin of
               the dastric juice, ptyalin of the salvia, and disease
               of malt.

   d8Gastropoda \[d8]Gas*trop"o*da\, n. pl., [NL., fr. Gr. [?],
      [?], stomach + -poda.] (Zo[94]l.)
      One of the classes of Mollusca, of great extent. It includes
      most of the marine spiral shells, and the land and
      fresh-water snails. They generally creep by means of a flat,
      muscular disk, or foot, on the ventral side of the body. The
      head usually bears one or two pairs of tentacles. See
      {Mollusca}. [Written also {Gasteropoda}.]
  
      Note: The Gastropoda are divided into three subclasses; viz.:
               ({a}) The Streptoneura or Dioecia, including the
               Pectinibranchiata, Rhipidoglossa, Docoglossa, and
               Heteropoda. ({b}) The Euthyneura, including the
               Pulmonata and Opisthobranchia. ({c}) The Amphineura,
               including the Polyplacophora and Aplacophora.

   B
  
      1. {byte}.
  
      2. A systems language written by {Ken Thompson} in
      1970 mostly for his own use under {Unix} on the {PDP-11}.   B
      was later improved by Kerninghan(?) and Ritchie to produce
      {C}.   B was used as the systems language on {Honeywell}'s
      {GCOS-3}.
  
      B was, according to Ken, greatly influenced by {BCPL}, but the
      name B had nothing to do with BCPL.   B was in fact a revision
      of an earlier language, {bon}, named after Ken Thompson's
      wife, Bonnie.

      4. A specification language by
      Jean-Raymond Abrial of {B Core UK}, Magdalen Centre, Oxford
      Science Park, Oxford OX4 4GA.   B is related to {Z} and
      supports development of {C} code from specifications.   B has
      been used in major {safety-critical system} specifications in
      Europe, and is currently attracting increasing interest in
      industry.   It has robust, commercially available tool support
      for specification, design, proof and code generation.
