The Sweetwater Word For The Day never fails to make me chuckle. Usually, it's something like "Bi-Directional" or "AES/EBU" or "Nyquist Limit." Rarely is it an actual single word, which is why I've always thought it should be "vaguely music-related term for the day," although I suppose that doesn't really roll off the tongue in the same manner, at least not in English. I bet the Japanese have a single word that means "vaguely music-related term for the day," and can also mean "tuna that is maybe a little more gamey than I'd like" because Japanese is a context-sensitive language like that.
However, today I see a chink in the armor. The Sweetwater Word For The Day is dovetail, of all things. They go on to say that it's a common method for joining a guitar neck to a body for set-in necks in acoustics. I have two questions:
1) Who doesn't know what a dovetail joint is?
2) Has Sweetwater reached the end of their 4th Edition Of Vaguely Music-Related Terms In English?
