Adverb is the Latin ad (near to) verbum (verb). English did not understand that language and, if I put the adverb near the verb, I cannot pass the Latin test. Funny, isn't it?

Why to translate "piscina" with pond? Piscina IS NOT a pond, it's a swimming pool and E. uses also the same word: piscina (from "piscis" = fish, as it was born as a fish farm)
