Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n latticing In structural work, particularly bridge work, the system of slender diagonal members which connect the two opposite parallel members or flanges of a structural iron or steel beam, column, or strut, and which are arranged in two or more distinct, continuous, zigzag lines, the bars of one line crossing those of the other: in distinction from lacing, in which the adjacent bars form a single consecutive, zigzag line, no two bars crossing one another.

washed in early sunrises
climb and spill scarlet
on a white lattice weave-
"Crimson Rambler" by Carl Sandburg

Breeze! lithe breeze! that creepest through the corn!
Breeze! O breeze! that fannest the forlorn!
Oh linger by the lattice of sweet Blanche of mine!
"Blanche" by Alfred Austin
Shining like stars in the twilight gloom
Brows as white as a lily's bloom
Gleam from its lattice and door;
And voices soft as a seraph's note,
Through its mysterious chambers float
Back from eternity's shore.
"The Haunted Castle" by Marietta Holley
So silent is the world to-night
The lamp gives silence out like light,
The latticed windows open wide
Show silence, like the night, outside:
The nightingale's faint song draws near
Like musical silence to mine ear.
"Silence" by Edith Nesbit
Well latticed,-- but the grate, alas!
Not rough with wire of steel or brass,
For Bully's plumage sake,
But smooth with wands from Ouse's side,
With which, when neatly peeled and dried,
The swains their baskets make.
"On The Death Of Mrs. Throckmorton's Bullfinch" by William Cowper
He kiss'd her, and they parted then; but, through the lattice low,
She gazed amid the vine-twigs pale, all cradled to and fro;
The holy whisper of the wind stole lightly by the eaves,--
A sad dirge, sighing to the fall of the winter-blighted leaves.
"The Wolf-Drove" by Thomas Stoddart

Lattice data [E , h, Λ] is isomorphic to lattice data of simple sextics if and only if [E , h, Λ] satisfies the fol lowing: (i) the lattice Λ can be embedded primitively in L, (ii) {x ∈ Λ | (x, h) = 0, x2 = −2} = {x ∈ hE i | x2 = −2}, and (iii) {x ∈ Λ | (x, h) = 1, x2 = 0} =
