  Boomerang \Boom"er*ang\, n.
     A very singular missile weapon used by the natives of
     Australia and in some parts of India. It is usually a curved
     stick of hard wood, from twenty to thirty inches in length,
     from two to three inches wide, and half or three quarters of
     an inch thick. When thrown from the hand with a quick rotary
     motion, it describes very remarkable curves, according to the
     shape of the instrument and the manner of throwing it, often
     moving nearly horizontally a long distance, then curving
     upward to a considerable height, and finally taking a
     retrograde direction, so as to fall near the place from which
     it was thrown, or even far in the rear of it.
     [1913 Webster]
