sash

sash. Rebated frame, fixed or opening, fitted with one or more panes of glass forming a window-light, set in a larger frame placed in the whole window-opening or aperture. Opening sashes can be of the vertical or horizontal sliding type in grooves, or can be hinged or pivoted at the sides, tops, bottoms, or centres. Thus casements have sashes. A sash capable of being moved up and down is a hung sash, suspended from cords or chains and pulleys fixed in the linings of the sash-frame, and counterbalanced by weights attached to the concealed ends of the cords or chains within the sash-box of the main window-frame. If only one sash moves, the window is said to be a single-hung sash-window, and if both sashes can be moved, it is double-hung. Yorkshire sliding-sashes are moved horizontally.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
