Episode 197: Monotone

Länge: 0:42
(Intro & piano music)
Μονός (monos) in modern Greek means 'single' and τόνος(tonos) means -among other things- a musical 'note'. Something odd happened in 1706, the combined word that travelled from France was used... metaphorically and meant something tiresome, a lack of variation. The literal use in English started in mid 1700. ΜΟΝΟΤΟΝΟΣ/MONOTONE
