R is for...

Happy R day to you!

rebato - A stiff flaring collar wired to stand up at the back of the head, worn by men and women in the 16th and early 17th century

rebec - A pear-shaped, two-stringed or three-stringed medieval instrument, played with a bow

rebellow - to re-echo loudly

If one plays the rebec while wearing a rebato, the rebellow can be deafening.

I have a special treat for S day tomorrow. Hope to see you here!
