        [1913 Webster]
     Note: The form of G is from the Latin, in the alphabet which
           it first appeared as a modified form of C. The name is
           also from the Latin, and probably comes to us through
           the French. Etymologically it is most closely related
           to a c hard, k y, and w; as in corn, grain, kernel; kin
           L. genus, Gr. ?; E. garden, yard; drag, draw; also to
           ch and h; as in get, prehensile; guest, host (an army);
           gall, choler; gust, choose. See {C}.
           [1913 Webster]
     2. (Mus.) G is the name of the fifth tone of the natural or
        model scale; -- called also {sol} by the Italians and
        French. It was also originally used as the treble clef,
        and has gradually changed into the character represented
        in the margin. See {Clef}. G[sharp] (G sharp) is a tone
        intermediate between G and A.
