Montie translates as "Gomeric's hill." Gomer was a legendary king of Mesopotamia. His name appears in the Sumerian King List on page 4 and in the Epic of Gilgamesh on page 52.
The first recorded use of the word "montage" is by Edgar Degas who, in 1877, described his painting as a "montage of scenes with a symbolic meaning".
The word "montage" is derived from the French word for "mountain", which in turn comes from the Latin mons, meaning "mountain".
In film editing, a montage is any collection of photographs or other visual elements stitched together into a single image or movie clip. The term is most commonly used to describe the work of American director George Lucas whose films Star Wars series is known for its extensive use of montages.
Lucas has said that he started thinking about ways to combine images together when he was eleven years old and watched an Italian film called Bicycle Thieves starring Charles Bickford.
How do you say Montavilla? It's Mon-tah-Vill-ah, according to the origin of the name (see first part). People may say Mon-ta-VEE-ah, but there is no historical foundation for pronouncing the double L as it is spoken in Spanish. Before English took over as the primary language, French was commonly used by people in North America so sometimes you see Ma-ne-vee-la written on documents. In fact, before Columbus discovered America, many languages were spoken in Europe including French, which at that time was becoming popular in South America.
Montavilla was originally named La Villa de San Antonio when it was founded in 1713 by Don Diego Hernández de Córdoba y Ramírez. The village was renamed after Saint Anthony six years later when another group of settlers arrived. You can imagine how confusing it must have been back then for newcomers who didn't speak English yet still wanted to be part of this new country. They needed a way to identify themselves and their community so they decided to use the name most familiar to the locals - Saint Anthony. Thus, the double L was lost in translation.
Today, most people say Mon-ta-VEE-ah when they talk about Montavilla because it sounds like someone said "oh my gosh" or "no way".
Montblanc is well-known for producing high-quality luxury items. It is a brand that started with a basic pen and has since revolutionized the watchmaking industry. Montblanc watches, while not as old as their Montblanc siblings, are nevertheless well-established and well-loved.
In addition to its famous timepieces, Montblanc also produces a variety of accessories including wallets, bags, and even camera lenses.
The company was founded in 1835 by Michel Charles Montblanch, who created an inexpensive writing instrument called "the Montblanquette". This initial success led to many other products being produced under the Montblanc name including pens, pencils, and even paintbrushes. In 1969, Montblanc began manufacturing wristwatches which have become very popular among celebrities. Today, the brand holds the number one position in the world's largest watch manufacturer ranking. Additionally, it is the number one brand in terms of revenue when it comes to luxury goods.
Michel Charles Montblanch was born on January 15th, 1780 in Montauban, France. He was the second son of a wealthy family who owned a large amount of land. When Michel Charles was only nine years old, his father died leaving him with almost no money.
Montmartre (French [email protected])/noun. A neighborhood of northern Paris on a hill above the Seine, the city's highest point; noted for its associations with numerous artists. 2014 population: 49742.
The upper part of this district is known as "the butte" or "hill"; it gets its name from an old French word meaning "mountain mare's tail"—a reference to the shape of the land. The butte is now home to a museum devoted to artists who have lived and worked there, as well as several other attractions.
The butte has been inhabited since at least Roman times. In the Middle Ages, it was used as a place of refuge by Christians persecuted by the Catholic Church. The butte became popular among artists in the late 18th century because of its views of the city below and its proximity to the capital. Many famous painters, poets, and musicians have rented rooms in the local houses - often for only a few dollars per month. Today, these rooms are now luxury apartments, which are sometimes too expensive for many Parisians to afford.
During World War II, the butte was completely destroyed by fire-bombing raids from the German army. Almost all buildings over four stories high were burned down.
