Headword: Μελισμός
Adler number: mu,513

[Meaning] separation of members. [Formed] out of the [verb] μελίζω ["I dismember"].
Greek Original:
Μελισμός: τῶν μελῶν ἡ διαίρεσις. ἐκ τοῦ μελίζω.
The headword is ambiguous between "dismembering/dismemberment" and "song" (from μέλος , which is likewise ambiguous). Other lexicographers record the ambiguity, as in Herodian, Partitions p. 180 Boissonade: "a tragedy, or the cutting up of meat, spelled with an iota".
