EtymologyEdit

From Latin famuli, from the first word of the fourth line of Ut queant laxis, the medieval hymn which solfège was based on because its lines started on each note of the scale successively.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

fa (plural fas)

  1. (music) A syllable used in solfège to represent the fourth note of a major scale.
    • 1749, Henry Fielding, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling. In Six Volumes, volume (please specify |volume=I to VI), London: Printed by A[ndrew] Millar, [], OCLC 928184292:
      And now Mrs Waters (for we must confess she was in the same bed), being, I suppose, awakened from her sleep, and seeing two men fighting in her bedchamber, began to scream in the most violent manner, crying out murder! robbery! and more frequently rape! which last, some, perhaps, may wonder she should mention, who do not consider that these words of exclamation are used by ladies in a fright, as fa, la, la, ra, da, &c., are in music, only as the vehicles of sound, and without any fixed ideas.
