Thanks! Although I can't find HORNWORK in my Oxford Dictionary, your answer must be right as the root lies in the german word HORNWERK.By the way, is the Velásquez dictionary online? 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
1 m. Fortificación compuesta de dos medios baluartes trabados con una cortina.
This is the spanish definition which can be translated more or less to: a fort in the form of two half pentagons covered with a curtain
Explanation: I doubt if the Velásquez would be online (but search by all means!) but it is easy to find in libraries and bookstores, it is one of the most widely sold Eng.-Span. general dictionaries and a good one to buy.
And I must admit that is all I know of the subject; 99% of my answers come out of my head but that one is straight from the dictionary and also agrees with the definition found in the Dicc. de la Real Academia, which is also an excellent investment!
