    realty - real estate

    Kommentar
    Nach Merriam-Webster stammt "realty" von 1670, "real estate" von 1666. Würde mich interessieren, ob in Brit. oder Amerik. zuerst, vermute letzteres, weil an der amerik. Westküste ja die "Landnahme" bzw. das Vordringen ins Landesinnere ja zu ungefär jener Zeit vor sich ging. Mir ist allerdings nicht klar, wie man ausgerechnet auf "real" gekommen ist. Vielleicht hat jemand einen Tip? John Locke jedenfalls spricht (nach einer kurzen Durchsicht) im Second Treatise of Goverment (1689) in Abschnitt "Property" von "possesions of land" bzw. von "property in the ground", wenn er von Landbesitz spricht.

    (vergl. thread "Hab und Gut", habe neu eröffnet, weil das Thema sich gewandelt hat)

    Not sure, but it reminded me immediately of the legalese expression "real property". You'll get millions of hits for this expression, here's one with a nice definition: http://www.law.cornell.edu/topics/real_proper....

    Excerpt: "One of the basic dividing lines between property is that between real property and personal property. Generally, the term real property refers to land."

    The next paragraph goes on to talk about three kinds of estates, and ends with a link to "real estate transactions". Doesn't quite answer your question, but may lead you closer to it.

    The word real from Real astate comes from the spanish word of real which means "royal" Real estate means Roval's estate.

    @thanh: I disagree.
    realty (1670), from earlier meaning (1544)"real possession.
    real: 1448 related to things (esp. property) from L:L. "realis" actual, from L. res "matter, thing" of unknown origin. Meaning "genuine" from 1559; that of "actually existing" attested from 1597; sense of "unaffected, no-nonsense" is from 1847. Real estate is first recorded 1666 and retains the oldest Eng. sense of the word.
    real (N.) a small Spanpish silver coin, 1588, from Span. real, noun use of real (adj.) "regal" from L. regalis "regal". Esp. in ref. to the real de Plata, which circulated in the US. till c. 1850 and in Mexico till 1897.
