  5. "Han studerer gresk filosofi …

"Han studerer gresk filosofi i et hemmelig rom i kjelleren."

Translation:He studies Greek philosophy in a secret room in the basement.

October 13, 2015



But are the shadows on the basement's walls the true reality?


Evidently 'he is studying Greek philosophy in a secret room in the cellar' is wrong. No idea why.


Wiktionary says "hemmelig" comes from Proto-Germanic meaning something like "homely". Any idea how homely became secret? If you need to do something secret you do it in your home?
