I recently bought an etymological dictionary of the Italian language, which had long dreamed , I was always very interesting, where there was a particular word. I want to share some of the findings.
In the ancient Roman calendar, the year began with the month of March, and it was just 10 months a year. Hence it is clear where they took their names:
September - settebmre - from the Latin. septem, ie sette, «seven», because it was the seventh month of the year. October - ottobre - from the Latin. octo - otto, «eight»
November - novembre, have all guessed that this "nove", «Nine»
December - dicembre -. "Dieci", «the ten»

The warmest, summer, months named after Roman emperors:
July - from the Latin. iulius - the name of Giulio (Cesare), Julius Caesar. A previously called modestly quintilis - ie, the "fifth".
August - from the Latin. augustus - on behalf of Ottaviano Augusto, Octavian Augustus, was previously Sextilis - "sixth".

Reform of the ancient Roman calendar took place in 46 BC, when added to the existing ten two months:
January - Ianuarius - in honor of the god Giano (Janus) - the god of beginning, beginnings, in all senses: the material and spiritual, he was worthy to open the new year.
February - from the Latin. februus - "purificatorio", cleansing.

And stay March - from the Latin. Martius, in honor of Mars; April - Aprilis, May - June and Majus - Junius, on behalf of Juno.

What is surprising how many centuries have passed, how many different calendars and new year had long been started on March 1 and in Russia before Peter I and was by September 1 and the names of many languages ​​are the same, from the ancient ancient Roman tradition.

Many interesting things I read in this dictionary .. At the end I'll write about the opening, for me personally. The Italian word magari - derived from the Greek "makarios", which means felice, happy. So name and surname Makar Makarov, I think, means "happy" (All Makarov Hello!)))) On this happy note conclude my story, and I wish you all a good day!

Re: My favorite dictionary

Yes, only in the supermarket, when all the students are beginning to sell. In fact, this is not the best etymological dictionary, but still a lot of interesting

Do not restrain myself, even write, my favorite, about chess, all the time thinking, but why scaccomatto, who it crazy? ))) It turns out, scacco comes from the Persian sah, meaning "the Shah, the King," and matto - mat from the root - the "dead", ie sah mat - the king is dead. In our pronunciation of the Russian version is even more similar to the original!

Re: My favorite dictionary

fellow streamlined all about ... magari not know, it's interesting!
but yesterday I discovered that the word comes from the name of the ghetto area in Venice, where the Jewish community lived. supposedly word means in translation "casting", and there is a new ghetto (near the new foundry, the old Ghetto (near the old foundry), and the newest ghetto, and Jews settled first new ghetto, and then the old, ie, the definition of "new" and " old "refers to the casting, rather than at the time of check-in. from the 16th century to the bridges leading to the area of ​​the ghetto were installed gates that were closed at night, all the Jews who stayed on the mainland of Venice at the time of closing of the gates punished. it is interesting that this segregation banned Napoleon, who was a very progressive views.

also the word catacomb comes from a particular place in Rome on the Appian Way.

Re: My favorite dictionary

Oh, great Dictionary. Today was in Milan, just tore to buy the dictionary, but did not buy. We'll have to order it on the internet.
I like it a dictionary of synonyms, antonyms Zanichelli.
Now search for the dictionary of chemistry, if there is such.
Polytechnic Dictionary is also cool, but I do not have to come from Russia ordered.
In general, cool theme, just do the search for good dictionaries.
