The study of correlative terms existing in a particular language may
often throw valuable light on the manners and customs of the nations
using it.
(Peter Mark Roget, 1852)

The keyword we wish to put on our agenda as a starting exploring
term is MEMORY [memorial – monument – public – public space]
In order to find inferences with regard to the contemporary state of
European society and looking for the best tools for safeguarding the
European intangible cultural heritage, WORDS ROOM aims to
compare how are defined in the European dictionaries some
particular concepts dealing with art and culture and the ‘relation
with the other’ – according to their specific significations in each
country and its historical development.
Are there important or small differences in the European languages
with regard to the definition of selected words, or about the
relations between them and about the ideas which they express?
And if yes, what does that mean?
