Shabadabada, wanna sing?
Hello everyone !
Today we will sing with the word "suburb" originating in the Middle Ages.
I'm going to sing "I was born in the northern suburbs" and you?
Here is a word that comes from medieval Latin bannileuga, which appeared in the 11th century and consists of two words: ban and league.
"Among the Franks, the ban is a law for all those who are under the jurisdiction of a leader".
Lieue from the Latin leuca, comes from a Gallic word which refers to a distance.
Thus, in the Middle Ages, "suburb designates the distance of a league, where the inhabitants live under the same authority."
Good day and good game ;)
