## Geometric definition

is there a geometric definition on this curve's construction? i.e. how did the artisans construct the ogee shape? Xah Lee 10:31, 2005 Mar 17 (UTC)

Without looking this up anywhere, I've just changed parallel to tangential. -- Trevj (talk) 12:26, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

## origin

Is Ogee short for something? i.e. is there a full Latin name

## "Oh, gee"?

Can this be cited? I'm very skeptical.65.96.201.130 (talk) 14:17, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

## Cyma recta or reversa

I would think an ogee is a cyma recta not a reversa. Or can ogee be used for both? See [1] for ogee as cyma recta. Notum-sit (talk) 08:31, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

## Requested diagram

The photos are good illustrations but do not clearly identify which elements are of the shape being discussed. A diagram in which the shape is isolated would be helpful. Jim (talk) 15:48, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Added an image from the molding page. Does that work? --76.98.88.59 (talk) 02:54, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

## Ogee Clock

The picture of the clock doesn't seem to contain any Ogee curves (unless you count the beehive), and the title is definitely incorrect: the moulding of the clock is square bevelled, not Ogee. 122.176.243.137 (talk) 17:11, 15 September 2010 (UTC) Raj Mathur

## Arch

Should not the concept of an arch be indexed off this page?

That was a big gap on this page. Now fixed, with edit summary acknowledgement to you. Thanks. --Old Moonraker (talk) 07:52, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
