Niche?

I don't know anything about architecture, but I'll go for 'alcove'
3
I'm thinking "alcove" as well. It's one of those words that come up a lot in D&D for some reason.

pretty sure it's niche - unless there's another term even more specific to housing a small sculpture in the side of a building - niche can be pretty broadly applied though the term traces most directly to small inset in a church wall for a statue.

I call it Nietzschean Doorways.

The hilarious thing is, neither "niche" nor "alcove" is a particularly arcane term. I JUST COULD NOT COME UP WITH EITHER ONE OF THEM TO SAVE MY LIFE. And I tried to do this last week, too. Weird hole in the side of my brain.

I think you could use either alcove or niche correctly. It was Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen but now it's Olson Kundig.
8
In churches it's called an apse.
9
Are you talking about an aspe?
10
ha! no, you definitely aren't. maybe, though, you're talking about an apse...
11
Isn't an apse the entire rounded end of the church that houses the altar?
12
hole

"Weird hole in the side of my brain."

I think you mean lacuna.

Or alcove. Or niche.

Hole in brain: lacuna
Hole in wall: niche
round end of a church, usually behind the altar: apse

Y'all need to do more crossword puzzles.

Jen, I'm afraid this means that within three weeks you won't be able to remember how to tie your shoes or chew. It's all over, dear.

If you stick two apes in an apse do you have an apse for apes or an Apes' Aspe?

I'm feeling especially laconic about Lacunae.

Chewing is highly overrated - until you choke to death.

"vitrine."

"There once was a bishop from Chichester
who made all the saints in their niches stir"

...it wouldn't be the first time you've lost your mind, Miss Graves

@18 Do you get "sere" for dry all the time, or is that just Canada?? Mr. Canuck has a hole in his brain the size of a pencil eraser...'splains a lot...and now I know it's a lacuna, huh.
24
@23, oh, yeah, "sere" is always in there. First thing you look for, after "ait" (an island in a river) and "obi" (kimono sash).

Might be a lacuna, might just be a void. If it was larger, the size of a hand, the technical term is a "reichert".
25
A niche is a half-assed apse.
26
Wow, Jen - you really are a moron, aren't you...?

@ julia09 (comment #20) - a vitrine is a cabinet. use your internet.

@ Jen - it seems as an alleged "writer", you should have a grasp of common words such as "alcove" or "niche" - or at least know how to find the big fancy words for what it is you are trying to say. But then again, it would also seem you'd know how to properly construct a sentence; it may be that none of the architects attended, but that does not mean that "nobody went".

Writers: go look at a dictionary or thesaurus. It's printed in black and white, but maybe you can get a sense of HOW A WRITER WRITES.
