The “…. base word for senate, senex, literallymeant 'old man’.” (Newton) I have not researched it, but I wonder if the influence of the meaning“senate” is one of the reason why age plays a big factor in holding a position? Also, to “Veto” and“civil law” are taken from the Roman system of law. I found it rather interesting while reading theRoman's influenced part of our alphabet system and terms used today; such as, “Achilles heel” and“Crocodile Tears”. (Peraki M. & Vougiouklaki, 2015)According to Peraki & Vougiouklakiover“150, 000” words of the English language come from Greek inﬂuence. Bythe way when we writein APA we use the font in “New Roman Times”, a bit tickling.
!Great post, Nicole! Class, Washington DC was designed by Frenchman PierreCharles L'Enfant, "The entire city was built around the idea that every citizen wasequally important . . . the Mall was designed as open to all comers, which wouldhave been unheard of in France. It's a very sort of egalitarian idea."Congress was placed on a high point with a commanding view of the Potomac,instead of building the White House there as would have been the case in Europe.Capitol Hill was the center of the city from which diagonal avenues named after thestates radiated, cutting across a grid street system. A grid plan is a type of city planin which streets run at right angles to each other. In ancient Rome, the grid planmethod of land measurement was called Centuriation. Class, other early US citiesused a grid plan before Washington DC. What examples can you find?
