Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Si (Mus) A syllable applied, in solmization, to the note B; more recently, to the seventh tone of any major diatonic scale. It was added to Guido's scale by Le Maire about the end of the 17th century.

    • n si In solmization, the syllable used for the seventh tone of the scale, or the leading tone. In the scale of C this tone is B, which is therefore called si in France, Italy, etc. This syllable was not Included in the syllables of Guido, because of the prevalence in his time of the hexachord theory of the scale; it is supposed to have been introdnced about 1600. In the tonic sol-fa system, ti (tē) is used instead, to avoid the confusion between the syllables of the seventh tone and of the sharp of the fifth.
    • n si The chemical symbol of silicon.
