    • 1927, Havelock Ellis, Studies in the Psychology of Sex, Volume 2 (of 6)[1]:
      Among the Normans, everywhere, homosexuality was markedly prevalent; the spread of sodomy in France about the eleventh century is attributed to the Normans, and their coming seems to have rendered it at times almost fashionable, at all events at court. In England, William Rufus was undoubtedly inverted, as later on were Edward II, James I, and, perhaps, though not in so conspicuous a degree, William III.
  3. (music) (of a chord) Having the lowest note transposed an octave higher.
  4. (chemistry) (of sugar) Having its polarization changed by hydrolysis; see invert sugar.
