Footnotes

  1. ^

    stor(e)y meaning a level of a building seems to come from the narrative paintings on the sides of medieval buildings.

  2. ^

    Finnish viisas as in the Kalevala (my latest textual obsession), Third Rune: "Oi on viisas Väinämöinen, tietäjä iän-ikuinen!" ("Oh thou wise Väinämöinen, immortal sage!", or something like that.)

  3. ^

    Wizard: "one who is wise". Compare drunkard: "one who is drunk", dotard: "one who dotes", coward: "one who is cowed", etc.
