Bath, Bad, baden, Sulis Minerva (W3)

(E?)(L?) http://www.takeourword.com/TOW192/page4.html
Die englische Stadt "Bath", verdankt ihren Namen den (heißen) Heilquellen und geht also auf "bath", lat. "balneum" zurück. Die Römer nannten sie ursprünglich noch "Aqua Sulis" = "Wasser des Sulis", nach dem dortigen Tempel des "Sulis Minerva".
Dieser "weisse Schimmel" ("Sulis Minerva") ergab sich durch die Gleichsetzung der ursprünglichen britischen Gottheit "Sulis" mit der römischen "Minerva", der Göttin für Handwerk, Weisheit und Künst.

Das engl. "bath", altengl. "bæth", dt. "Bad" hatte ursprünglich die Bedeutung "Hitze", da man Bäder anscheinend immer als Warmbäder oder sogar "Heißbäder" verstand. Und "baden" soll auf ein lautmalerisches "bähen" zurück gehen, das beim Einstieg ins heiße Wasser zu hören war.

City (W3)

Engl. "City" (13. Jh.) = dt. "Stadt", "Hauptstadt", "Innenstadt" geht über altfrz. "cité" zurück auf lat. "civitas" = "Bürgerschaft", "Staat", "Gemeinde". Als Wurzel findet man ide. "*kei-" = dt. "liegen", "Bett", "Heimstätte", "Gehöft".

City Living

The first known city was built by the Sumerians 6000 years ago in the territory that is now Iraq. By 2002 48% of people living in the world lived in urban areas. Many people in every territory live in urban areas.

Areas of dense population facilitate trade and the provision of services. Just two territories have 100% of the population living in urban areas - these are Singapore and Hong Kong (China).

In Brazil 145 million people, that is 82% of the population, live in towns and cities. In Bhutan 180 thousand, 8% of the population, live in urban areas.

Garden City
Gartenstadt
Cité-Jardin (W3)

Der Begriff "Gartenstadt", engl. "Garden City" (1898), frz. "Cité-Jardin", geht (als Lehnübersetzung) zurück auf den Engländer Ebenezer Howard (1850-1928). Er verstandt darunter nicht nur eine Stadt oder einen Stadtteil im grünen bzw. mit Gärten und Grünflächen, sondern verbandt mit seiner Idee auch ein genossenschaftliches Konzept und sozialreformerischen Zielsetzungen.

Die erste "garden city", die nach dem Gartenstadtprinzip in Großbritannien entstanden, war Letchworth, nördlich von London ab dem Jehr 1903. Es folgte "Welwyn Garden City" (ab 1920). In Deutschland entstand als erste und einzige (echte) "Gartenstadt" Hellerau (damals bei, ab 1950 Teil von Dresden) (ab 1907) von R.Riemerschmied.

Metropolis (W3)

Dt., frz., engl. "Metropolis" setzt sich zusammen aus griech. "metro" = dt. "Mutter" und griech. "polis" = dt. "Stadt".

Die Pariser "Métro" wurde im Jahr 1900 rechtzeitig zur Weltausstellung eröffnet. Die Bezeichnung ist ein schönes Beispiel wie Worte von einem Gegenstand auf den nächsten übertragen werden, bis sie etwas bezeichnen, mit dem sie ursprünglich nichts zu tun hatten. So wurde die U-Bahn in Paris zunächst frz. "Chemin de fer métropolitain" (1873) genannt, etwa dt. "Städtische Eisenbahn". Erst verkürzte man auf frz. "Métropolitain" und schließlich auf frz. "Métro".

Aber was lag davor? Die alten Griechen liebten es mit dem Schiff an den Küsten des Mittelmeers und des Schwarzen Meers entlang zu fahren und Städte zu gründen. Manchmal verbannte man auch mißliebige Zeitgenossen aus den griechischen Städten, denen gar nichts anderes übrig blieb, als sich in einiger Entfernung niederzulassen. Insbesondere Athen konnte schließlich auf einige Tochterstätte verweisen. Und Athen selbst wurde zur "Mutterstadt", zur "metro polis", zur "Metropole". (In der Medizin findet man griech. "metro-" = "Gebärmutter-" zu griech. "meter" = dt. "Mutter".) Mit der Zeit wurde der Platz für Städte-Neugründungen immer begrenzter. Aber die grossen Städte wollten auf die Ehrenbezeichnung nicht verzichten und erhoben Anspruch auf den Titel "Metropolis" (16. Jh.) und "Metropole" (19. Jh.) - einfach nur wegen ihrer Größe. Und so wurde die "Metropole" einfach zur "Großstadt". In den Zeiten der Koloniealreiche erinnerten sich England und Frankreich (frz. "La France Métropolitaine") wieder schwach an die ursprüngliche Bedeutung der "Metropole" und bezogen es auf das jeweilige "Mutterland" oder speziell auf London und Paris.

Ideopolis

Presented by Kel Richards

For some "Metropolis" is just the name of the city where Superman lives (cunningly disguised as Clark Kent). But it’s a real word, first recorded in the 16th century, meaning "the chief city".

"Metropolis" comes from two Greek source words: "polis" ("city") and "metro" ("mother") – so a district’s "mother city" is a "metropolis". Now Michael Quinion reports on a new word that has been built on this.

On his World Wide Words website he gives us: "ideopolis" meaning (literally) "a city of ideas". Apparently an "ideopolis" acts as a "knowledge hub" that stimulates growth. Michael says that London and Edinburgh have each been named an "ideopolis" by the UK Work Foundation – because such a large proportion of their workers are involved in what are called now "knowledge industries": healthcare, teaching, architecture, the media, research and development, and computing. And to think – we used to casually dismiss them as "white collar workers" (ignoring the brain above the collar).

Porkopolis a metropolis? In a pig's eye!

"In a pig's eye" is an American rhyming slang phrase meaning "That's a lie", or "I don't believe you". We Aussies have a similar phrase, referring to the rear end of the porcine anatomy. How would you like to live in a town called "Pig's Eye"? Some of its early settlers became so tired of being ridiculed that they changed its comical name to a far more respectable one - "Saint Paul".

Metropolis is now completely destroyed, its ruins being visible in a place called Tratsa in the nahié of Torbali and the vilayet (Turkish province) of Smyrna, quite close to the river Caystrus. The neighbouring village of Torbali has been built up with stone once used in the structures of ancient Metropolis and, at Tratsa, there may still be seen a portion of its wall, also its theatre and acropolis, the latter formed of huge blocks, while the olive groves are dotted with architectural ruins. This Metropolis, however, must not be confounded with two cities of the same name, one of which was in Phrygia and the other in Thessaly.

Read the Original 32-Page Program for Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927)

in Film, Sci Fi| August 19th, 2016 Leave a Comment

One of the very first feature-length sci-fi films ever made, Fritz Lang’s "Metropolis" took a daring visual approach for its time, incorporating Bauhaus and Futurist influences in thrillingly designed sets and costumes. Lang’s visual language resonated strongly in later decades. The film’s rather stunning alchemical-electric transference of a woman’s physical traits onto the body of a destructive android—the so-called Maschinenmensch—for example, began a very long trend of female robots in film and television, most of them as dangerous and inscrutable as Lang’s. And yet, for all its many imitators, Metropolis continues to deliver surprises. Here, we bring you a new find: a 32-page program distributed at the film’s 1927 premier in London and recently re-discovered.

(E?)(L?) http://www.ascusc.org/jcmc/vol1/issue1/acker/ACKTEXT.HTM#CITYHIS

Saint Isidore of Seville (ca. 560-636) was a man of both thought and action. He built cities in Spain as he created a church hierarchy in that country, and he wrote an etymology in which he described two origins for the word city.
The first was "urbs" ("lat. "urbs" = "Stadt"), the stones of the city needed for shelter, commerce, and defense. (vgl. "Urbs aeterna" = "die Ewige Stadt" (Rom) und "urbanisation" = "Besiedlung", "Verstädterung").
The second was "civitas", the practices of congregated people in ritual and civil spirit (Sennett, 1990).

Over time, the walled city for defense gave way to the open city of commerce. By the 1700s, London stood as the largest European city because of its happy geographic location and centrality to the trade of both its wealthy citizens and its partners moving goods over the seas. The following discussion of London follows the work of Robert Fishman (1987) and ultimately will lead us to an understanding of the changing demographics and demands of today's collaborative academic environment.

Anmerkung:
lat. "urbs" = "Stadt", lat. "urbanus" = "zur Stadt gehörend".
