[Webster 1913 Suppl.] Vase \Vase\ (v[=a]s or v[aum]z; 277), n. [F. vase; cf. Sp. & It. vaso; fr. L. vas, vasum. Cf. Vascular, Vessel.] 1. A vessel adapted for various domestic purposes, and anciently for sacrificial uses; especially, a vessel of antique or elegant pattern used for ornament; as, a porcelain vase; a gold vase; a Grecian vase. See Illust. of Portland vase, under Portland. [1913 Webster] No chargers then were wrought in burnished gold, Nor silver vases took the forming mold. --Pope. [1913 Webster] 2. (Arch.) (a) A vessel similar to that described in the first definition above, or the representation of one in a solid block of stone, or the like, used for an ornament, as on a terrace or in a garden. See Illust. of Niche. (b) The body, or naked ground, of the Corinthian and Composite capital; -- called also tambour, and drum. [1913 Webster] Note: Until the time of Walker (1791), vase was made to rhyme with base,, case, etc., and it is still commonly so pronounced in the United States. Walker made it to rhyme with phrase, maze, etc. Of modern English practice, Mr. A. J. Ellis (1874) says: ``Vase has four pronunciations in English: v[add]z, which I most commonly say, is going out of use, v["a]z I hear most frequently, v[=a]z very rarely, and v[=a]s I only know from Cull's marking. On the analogy of case, however, it should be the regular sound.'' One wit has noted that "a v[aum]z is a v[=a]z that costs more than $100." --?, suggesting that the latter is considered a higher-class pronunciation. [1913 Webster] 3. (Bot.) The calyx of a plant. [1913 Webster] Croaker \Croak"er\ (-?r), n. 1. One who croaks, murmurs, grumbles, or complains unreasonably; one who habitually forebodes evil. [1913 Webster] 2. (Zo["o]l.) (a) A small American fish (Micropogon undulatus), of the Atlantic coast. (a) An American fresh-water fish (Aplodinotus grunniens ); -- called also drum. (c) The surf fish of California. [1913 Webster] Note: When caught these fishes make a croaking sound; whence the name, which is often corrupted into crocus. Drumfish \Drum"fish`\, n. (Zo["o]l.) Any fish of the family Sci[ae]nid[ae], which makes a loud noise by means of its air bladder; -- called also drum. [1913 Webster] Note: The common drumfish (Pogonias chromis) is a large species, common south of New Jersey. The southern red drum or red horse (Sci[ae]na ocellata), and the fresh-water drum or croaker (Aplodionotus grunniens), are related species. [1913 Webster]
