arabesque can also be an adjective, in which it means: elaborately designed

Arabesque in literatureEdit

I've seen several English teachers use the word arabesque as some sort of genre in literature. Different teachers seem to have different definitions of what it really means, but they often compare it to grotesque. If this is a real usage of the word, we should probably add it. 02:21, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Need citations to verify this before adding. JamesjiaoTC 02:26, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
