Word of the day: harmonium

The word of the day is harmonium:

  1. an organlike keyboard instrument with small metal reeds and a pair of bellows operated by the player's feet.

"We found the attic, with boxes of old books and stored quilts and three empty trunks, and a broken harmonium, and Grandmother Adelia's headless dress form, a pallid, musty torso."

 - Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
