tsuwm's worthless word for the day, cymbiform [Anat., Bot.] boat-shaped [from L. cymba, boat + form] prompted me to wonder at the relationship between boats and the percussion instrument, the cymbals. They were both apparently launched from a Greek word (which I can't reproduce here) meaning anything hollow, especially a hollow vessel; a cup, basin, which was adapted to Latin as cymbalum. Cymbal also led to chime.
