Dulcis Latin

Mentioned only in Grove, who says: �The verbal coincidence of Dolce, Dolcan, Dulciana and Dulzian has led to much confusion; probably all terms derive from Dulcis, a stop with �sweet� tone.� The Latin word dulcis means �delightful, sweet, pleasant, or agreeable�.

Examples

None known. Contributions welcome.
