Great mcmtanyel 2019-01-02 19:51

Hello Chris,
I wonder if the English word lodge comes from the Italian loggia. This is a very pretty view, looking up from its courtyard.

Hi Murat

'Lodge' comes from old French 'loge' with modern French 'loger'. France was ruled by the Romans for over 500 years so there is a lot of Latin still used and it's classed as a Romantic language. Britain was ruled by the French Normans from 1066 to 1201 ad, so that's probably how loggia found its way into English.
