Generiši izgovor

Area of thickened skin on or between the toes. It is usually caused by pressure from part of the shoe. Treatment of painful corns is an important part of chiropody.
Cultivated New World plant Zea mays of the grass family, with the grain borne on cobs enclosed in husks. It is also called corn or Indian corn. It was domesticated by 6,0BC in Mesoamerica, where it grew wild. It became the staple crop for the Neolithic farming villages and civilizations of Mexico and Peru; it was cultivated throughout most of the New World at the point of European contact. It was brought to Europe, Asia, and Africa by the colonizing powers, but its use is mainly for animal feed in those regions. In the US, a corn monoculture dominates the Midwest, where many hybrids have been developed for both human food and animal feed. Today it is grown extensively in all subtropical and warm temperate regions, and its range has been extended to colder zones by hardy varieties developed in the 1960s.
Corn is eaten fresh (on the cob or creamed), canned (niblets), frozen, and in dried forms (cornmeal, popcorn), and is made into hominy, polenta, cornflour, and corn bread. It is pressed for corn oil and fermented into a mash, which, distilled, is corn liquor (whiskey). Most of the methods of storing, processing, and cooking corn can be traced to Native American recipes. Popcorn has been found in archeological sites in the SW dating from 4,0BC. Corn stalks are made into paper and hardboard.
Tall annual cereal grass bearing kernels on large ears: widely cultivated in America in many varieties; the principal cereal in Mexico and Central and South America since pre-Columbian times; SYN. maize, Indian corn, Zea mays.
Ears of corn grown for human food; SYN. edible corn.
The dried grains or kernels or corn used as animal feed or ground for meal.
A hard thickening of the skin (especially of the toes) caused by the pressure of ill-fitting shoes; SYN. clavus.

missile [ imenica ]
Generiši izgovor

ETYM Latin missile.
(Homonym: missal).
A rocket-propelled vehicle carrying passengers or instruments or a warhead.
Rocket-propelled weapon, which may be nuclear-armed (see nuclear warfare). Modern missiles are often classified as surface-to-surface missiles (ssm), air-to-air missiles (aam), surface-to-air missiles (sam), or air-to-surface missiles (asm). A cruise missile is in effect a pilotless, computer-guided aircraft; it can be sea-launched from submarines or surface ships, or launched from the air or the ground.
Rocket-propelled weapons were first used by the Chinese about ad 110and were encountered in the 18th century by the British forces. The rocket missile was then re-invented by William Congreve in England around 180and remained in use with various armies in the 19th century. The first wartime use of a long-range missile was against England in World War ii, by the jet-powered German V1 (Vergeltungswaffe, “revenge weapon” or Flying Bomb), a monoplane (wingspan about 6 m/ft, length 8.5 m/ft); the first rocket-propelled missile with a preset guidance system was the German Valso launched by Germany against Britain in World War ii.
Modern missiles are also classified as strategic or tactical: strategic missiles are the large, long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs, capable of reaching targets over 5,5km/3,4mi), and tactical missiles are the short-range weapons intended for use in limited warfare (with a range under 1,1km/6mi).
Not all missiles are large. There are many missiles that are small enough to be carried by one person. The Stinger, for example, is an antiaircraft missile fired by a single soldier from a shoulder-held tube. Most fighter aircraft are equipped with missiles to use against enemy aircraft or against ground targets. Other small missiles are launched from a type of truck, called a mlrs (multiple-launch rocket system), that can move around a battlefield. Ship-to-ship missiles like the Exocet have proved very effective in naval battles.
The vast majority of missiles have systems that guide them to their target. The guidance system may consist of radar and computers, either in the missile or on the ground. These devices track the missile and determine the correct direction and distance required for it to hit its target. In the radio-guidance system, the computer is on the ground, and guidance signals are radio-transmitted to the missile. In the inertial guidance system, the computer is on board the missile. Some small missiles have heat-seeking devices fitted to their noses to seek out the engines of enemy aircraft, or are guided by laser light reflected from the target. Others (called tow missiles) are guided by signals sent along wires that trail behind the missile in flight.
Outside the industrialized countries, states had active ballistic-missile programs by 198and had deployed these weapons: Afghanistan, Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Egypt, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, North Korea, South Korea, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Syria, and Taiwan. Non-nuclear short-range missiles were used during the Iran–Iraq War 1980–against Iraqi cities.
Battlefield missiles used in the 19Gulf War included antitank missiles and short-range attack missiles. nato announced in 19that it was phasing out ground-launched nuclear battlefield missiles, and these are being replaced by types of tactical air-to-surface missile (tasm), also with nuclear warheads.
In the Falklands conflict 198small, conventionally armed sea-skimming missiles were used (the French Exocet) against British ships by the Argentine forces, and similar small missiles have been used against aircraft and ships elsewhere.

seed [ imenica ]
Generiši izgovor

ETYM Old Eng. seed, sed, as. saed, from sâwan to sow; akin to Dutch zaad seed, German saat, Icel. sâth, saethi, Goth. manasęths seed of men, world. Related to Sow to scatter seed, and cf. Colza.
The reproductive structure of higher plants (angiosperms and gymnosperms). It develops from a fertilized ovule and consists of an embryo and a food store, surrounded and protected by an outer seed coat, called the testa. The food store is contained either in a specialized nutritive tissue, the endosperm, or in the cotyledons of the embryo itself. In angiosperms the seed is enclosed within a fruit, whereas in gymnosperms it is usually naked and unprotected, once shed from the female cone.
Following germination the seed develops into a new plant.
Seeds may be dispersed from the parent plant in a number of different ways. Agents of dispersal include animals, as with burs and fleshy edible fruits, and wind, where the seed or fruit may be winged or plumed. Water can disperse seeds or fruits that float, and various mechanical devices may eject seeds from the fruit, as in the pods of some leguminous plants (see legume).
There may be a delay in the germination of some seeds to ensure that growth occurs under favorable conditions (see after-ripening, dormancy). Most seeds remain viable for at least years if dried to about water and kept at -20şC/-4şF, although 2of them will not survive this process.
(Homonym: cede).
A mature fertilized plant ovule consisting of an embryo and its food source and having a protective coat or testa.
A small hard fruit.
