Default [Dixonary] ROUND 2980 - QUADRATURA - VOTE NOW!

Here are 14 definitions for the word QUADRATURA...but only one is correct. Please send your votes (by responding to this email) for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Friday, May 3, at 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings time. As usual, I will let you determine the time in your time zone. :-)

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!
