U.S. a cappella singing style incorporating many folk hymns and utilizing a special musical notation. The seven-note scale used by some singers is sung not to the syllables do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti but to a four-syllable system brought to America by early English colonists: fa-sol-la-fa-sol-la-mi. The system reflects the fact that a series of three intervals repeats itself in the major scale. A differently shaped note head is used for each of the four syllables. The singer reads the music by following the shapes; singers unfamiliar with the system can read the notes according to their placement on the staff. The tradition started in New England and moved South and West as more sophisticated forms of music reached the U.S. Shape-note singing had largely died out except in rural areas by the 1880s, but it has experienced a revival in recent years. The traditional shape-note hymnal, The Sacred Harp, first published in 1844, remains in use today
A machine tool in which a single-point cutting tool mounted on a reciprocating ram is traversed across the workpiece linearly.

Metal-cutting machine tool in which the workpiece is usually held in a vise or similar device that is clamped to a table and can be manually operated or power-driven at right angles to the path of a chisel-like cutting tool with only one cutting edge. A moving table feeds the workpiece in small, individual steps at the end of each stroke of the tool. The adjustable mounting of the tool permits the cutting of grooves and generating of surfaces at almost any angle to one another. The largest shapers have a 36-in. (0.9-m) cutting stroke and can machine parts up to 36 in. (0.9 m) long. See also planer
Involves reinforcing behavior already in the repertoire of the individual, which approximates the goal Use of positive reinforcement for successive approximations and operant extinction for other behaviors to establish the new learning
A procedure for developing new, or more complex, behavior through the reinforcement of successive approximations to the goal behavior This procedure uses both positive reinforcement and extinction procedures to develop these closer approximations
Sometimes a response is not visible or has not been demonstrated and thus cannot be reinforced Skinner proposed the idea of shaping where successive approximations are reinforced until the desired behavior is fully exhibited
A practice whereby delivery of a large amount of a security may be made in several smaller blocks so as to reduce the potential consequences of a fail May be especially useful where partialling is not acceptable
