English → English (gcide) Definition: Morris Morris \Mor"ris\, n. [Sp. morisco Moorish, fr. Moro a Moor: cf. F. moresque, It. moresca.] 1. A Moorish dance, usually performed by a single dancer, who accompanies the dance with castanets. [1913 Webster] 2. A dance formerly common in England, often performed in pagenats, processions, and May games. The dancers, grotesquely dressed and ornamented, took the parts of Robin Hood, Maidmarian, and other fictitious characters. [1913 Webster] 3. An old game played with counters, or men, which are placed at the angles of a figure drawn on a board or on the ground; also, the board or ground on which the game is played. [1913 Webster] The nine-men's morris is filled up with mud. --Shak. [1913 Webster] Note: The figure consists of three concentric squares, with lines from the angles of the outer one to those of the inner, and from the middle of each side of the outer square to that of the inner. The game is played by two persons with nine or twelve pieces each (hence called nine-men's morris or twelve-men's morris). The pieces are placed alternately, and each player endeavors to prevent his opponent from making a straight row of three. Should either succeed in making a row, he may take up one of his opponent's pieces, and he who takes off all of his opponent's pieces wins the game. [1913 Webster] Morris \Mor"ris\, n. [So called from its discoverer.] (Zo["o]l.) A marine fish having a very slender, flat, transparent body. It is now generally believed to be the young of the conger eel or some allied fish. [1913 Webster]
