Din dicționarul The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Rampart \Ram"part\ (r[a^]m"p[aum]rt), n. [F. rempart, OF.
     rempar, fr. remparer to fortify, se remparer to fence or
     intrench one's self; pref. re- re- + pref. en- (L. in) +
     parer to defend, parry, prepare, L. parare to prepare. See
     Pare.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. That which fortifies and defends from assault; that which
        secures safety; a defense or bulwark.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. (Fort.) A broad embankment of earth round a place, upon
        which the parapet is raised. It forms the substratum of
        every permanent fortification. --Mahan.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Bulwark; fence; security; guard.
  
     Usage: Rampart, Bulwark. These words were formerly
            interchanged; but in modern usage a distinction has
            sprung up between them. The rampart of a fortified
            place is the enceinte or entire main embankment or
            wall which surrounds it. The term bulwark is now
            applied to peculiarly strong outworks which project
            for the defense of the rampart, or main work. A single
            bastion is a bulwark. In using these words
            figuratively, rampart is properly applied to that
            which protects by walling out; bulwark to that which
            stands in the forefront of danger, to meet and repel
            it. Hence, we speak of a distinguished individual as
            the bulwark, not the rampart, of the state. This
            distinction, however, is often disregarded.
            [1913 Webster]
