Words (16)



The origin of the  word suranné (“quaint”) I used in a post , a few days ago, intrigued me. Originally, in the twelfth century, the word simply meant, which has more than a year.” In the 16th century, the word generally means “old, old”, or “belongs to a bygone era”. The word itself is formed on an,   “year” and sur  “on”. Today it is often used in a nostalgic context about  the  decor of a hotel or a house, its  furniture, or the general feeling one has in a house. More often than not, in a context that makes us want to.  return  in the past
