Formal \Form"al\ (f[^o]rm"al), a. [L. formalis: cf. F. formel.]
1. Belonging to the form, shape, frame, external appearance,
or organization of a thing.
[1913 Webster]

2. Belonging to the constitution of a thing, as distinguished
from the matter composing it; having the power of making a
thing what it is; constituent; essential; pertaining to or
depending on the forms, so called, of the human intellect.
[1913 Webster]

Of [the sounds represented by] letters, the material
part is breath and voice; the formal is constituted
by the motion and figure of the organs of speech.
--Holder.
[1913 Webster]

3. Done in due form, or with solemnity; according to regular
method; not incidental, sudden or irregular; express; as,
he gave his formal consent.
[1913 Webster]

His obscure funeral . . .
No noble rite nor formal ostentation. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

4. Devoted to, or done in accordance with, forms or rules;
punctilious; regular; orderly; methodical; of a prescribed
form; exact; prim; stiff; ceremonious; as, a man formal in
his dress, his gait, his conversation.

{Formal cause}. See under {Cause}.

Syn: Precise; punctilious; stiff; starched; affected; ritual;
ceremonial; external; outward.

Usage: {Formal}, {Ceremonious}. When applied to things, these
words usually denote a mere accordance with the rules
of form or ceremony; as, to make a formal call; to
take a ceremonious leave. When applied to a person or
his manners, they are used in a bad sense; a person
being called formal who shapes himself too much by
some pattern or set form, and ceremonious when he lays
too much stress on the conventional laws of social
intercourse. Formal manners render a man stiff or
ridiculous; a ceremonious carriage puts a stop to the
ease and freedom of social intercourse.
[1913 Webster]


Methylal \Meth"yl*al\, n. [Methylene alcohol.] (Chem.)
A light, volatile liquid, {H2C(OCH3)2}, regarded as a complex

{formal}.
