fact =3D=3D=3D .... literally "thing done" (source also of Old French fait,=
Spanish hecho, Italian fatto), noun use of neuter of factus, past particip=
le of facere "to do" (from PIE root *dhe- "to set, put"). Main modern sense=
of "thing known to be true" is from 1630s, from notion of "something that =
has actually occurred."=20
other than linguists and etymology-geeks,=20
we never think of "fact" as related to DO / Done, ...
most ppl would tend to link [facile] to [face]
and not to
Fact =3D=3D DO / Done (French [faire]), right?
