"X" is for "Xylophone", X shapes

A Xmas postcard .

X :
1-24 ème lettre, 19 ème consonne de l'alphabet, servant à noter les groupes de consonnes (KS) (Extrême) ou GZ (exemple) ou les consonnes Z (deuxième), ou S (soixante)









2-Forme de cette lettre ; Tréteaux en X
Examinons la photo: ne peut-on , sans exagérer, distinguer, dans les pieds du bac à fleurs une sorte de X ?
Et par association d'idées , au vu des exactions de cachou, un instrument de
torture , à la manière de la croix de
Saint-André ?


Xylo: élément savant,extrait du grec signifiant "bois", d'où Xylophone: instrument de musique à percussions formé de lames de bois
ou de métal de longueur inégale, sur
lesquelles on frappe avec deux petits maillets.

ParadoXe: non conforme à l'étymologie, le Xylophone de Guillaume est en..plastique .

En revanche, ces croisillons de bois forment bien une série de X .

  1. Since you told me, I saw the X formed by the legs of the cat - but the Xylophone as an instrument of torture? You should have heard me when I tried to learn to play the violin...

    Happy New Year to you and your dear ones!

  2. No, RuneE:the legs of the little table draws a kind of X, like an instrument of torture (my kitten was killing a mouse !)
    The xylophone isn't an insrument of torture,nor the violin, even if you are playing !

  5. There one or two toy Xylophones in the loft amongst the kids things. Their children can have them and I don't think it will be long before our first Grandchild gets one.

  7. Great-grandchildren all have xylophones, which was a clever choice (along with your other great Xs). Maybe I'll use it for round 4!

    I wish you a very happy new year!

  13. Great X post! It looks wonderful with the cat lying under the table! I love cats and I see you do too!. Our X is pronounced like the French X (ks).There are many Dutch words derived from French, because of the time that Napoleon came here in Holland.Only our French accent is not quite as it should be! Sorry, but we keep having a Dutch accent in all foreign languages we try to speak.

    What I wanted to say is: your post is great and lovely and I wish you a very happy new year.

  14. Me again. Thanks for your visit! During Napoleon we borrowed a lot of French words because we were occupied by him. We had to read French and a lot of people thought it classy to speak French. My mother in-law often did. She was a bit of a snob.
