Word of the day: bow window

The word of the day is bow window:

  1. a rounded bay window.

"Selecting from the few queer houses upon Mill Pond Bank a house with a wooden front and three stories of bow-window (not bay-window, which is another thing), I looked at the plate upon the door, and read there, Mrs. Whimple."

 - Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
