Nearly 30 years after the debut of "Star Wars," the force is stronger than ever. More than 30,000 "Star Wars" fans from as far away as Japan have gathered in Indianapolis for the four-day "Celebration III," the largest official "Star Wars" convention ever held.

Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
