English term or phrase:what is "calx/calcis"?
the paragraph is :" Much of ugliness of the speech one hears in the streets of America comes from hostility to song, from repression of the impulse to sing, circumscription of soul. In the education of the young in America, instead, the inculcation of mechanical, military patterns of speech. Inculcate, from calx/calcis, the heel. To inculcate: to tread in."
