Flemish (Dutch: Vlaams) is a popular informal term to refer to Belgian Dutch (Dutch: Belgisch-Nederlands) and is derived from the name of the County of Flanders (Historical region in the Low Countries), from Middle Dutch vlamisch, vlemesch.

Spinet Spinet           Clavicytherium Clavicytherium

  •  The virginal, spinet, and clavicytherium are all varieties of harpsichord that differ from it primarily in size, shape, and musical resources. Virginals and spinets usually have only a single set of strings and a single row of jacks. The clavicytherium is basically a harpsichord set upright so that its soundboard is vertical.
