message 1: by Valerie (new)

Valerie I once worked in a very large university library. The stacks upon stacks of books in non-English languaes made me learn some words in those languages. Sometimes there were versions in Romance languages of works whose English titles I knew. This is how I realized that the word 'storia' in most romance languages is the rough equivalent of the English 'history'.

It's been some years since I studied German, but isn't 'Geschichte' also a word meaning 'history'? I would have expected something more along the lines of 'Roman'. Interesting.
